CO₂ Avoidance from an EU Phase-Out of Gas Cooking Appliances

This factsheet reveals the potential CO₂ avoidance from an EU phase-out of gas cooking appliances from 2025 to 2029.

CLASP has estimated the potential CO₂ savings from a progressive EU phase-out of gas hobs from the market from 2025 to 2029. This scenario represents the effect of an energy label that compares hobs starting in 2025, followed by the implementation of Ecodesign efficiency requirements in 2029, which gas hobs would not be able to meet.

The policy options and scenarios proposed in the 2022 JRC study only consider incremental improvements of each technology (i.e., gas hobs, radiant and induction, with an exemption of hotplates). With this analysis, CLASP wanted to put forward the CO₂ emission reduction potential of shifting from gas to electric hobs.
