Technology, design, price and comfort These are the characteristics that most value European customers of domestic equipment with power less than 50kW. The main trend in manufacturing firms is the adaptation of models to Ecodesign.

In Europe they operate close to one million boilers for domestic use and around 82.000 units are sold annually. Germany, with more than 265.000 biomass boilers running, and Italy, with 115.000 boilers, lead the sales ranking with 15.000 units. Austria, with 125.000 boilers, the country with the best ratio per inhabitant by having a boiler for every Austrian 70. Y Spain had 2018 with 18.000 pellet boilers for domestic use, year in which 2.400 units were sold, an 7,1% more than the previous one.

The latest available European data indicates that there are more than 4,6 millions of pellet stoves running and that annual sales exceed 570.000 units. It highlights the positive evolution of sales in the Mediterranean countries. Italy has 2,6 millions of stoves running and leads the sales ranking with 180.000 units.

The European Pellet Conference, held this year in Wels has been the scene in which the conference director, Christiane Egger, highlighted the growth of biomass in Upper Austria, the region where the event takes place: the 35% of the heaters Domestic already works with biomass. The replacement of old installations of diesel and other fossil fuels by modern biomass boilers has managed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 43% in 10 years (2005-2015) in the residential sector.
Currently, emissions are one of the fundamental challenges of the pellet sector. In the framework of the World Sustainable Energy Days conference, which was held in the Austrian town of Wels from 27 from February to 1 in March of 2019, several companies showed their solutions and advanced strategies. Stefan Ortner, from ÖkoFEN, has presented the efficient Smart models, condensation equipment and biomass hybridisations with other renewable energies.
The almost 300.000 heating installations with advanced biomass in Spain prevented the emission of 4.157.319 tons of CO2 that negatively affect Climate Change. These are the emissions from the substitution of the use of fossil fuels, such as diesel and natural gas, for a Renewable Energy such as biomass, whose emissions are neutral in terms of the emission of greenhouse gases.
