Southern Europe is the main market for stoves because it requires an average investment that can be assimilated - around 1.000 € - and generates heat with a cost between 30% and 70% lower than with fossil fuels or electricity.

Expectations are very encouraging, mainly because saving is still crucial when buying a biomass equipment, and in addition, competition between manufacturers is favoring the technification of all of them, offering equipment with a tenth of emission of particles that old conventional firewood equipment.
