Berlin (AP) - The Federal Cabinet has decided on more substantial parts of the program for more climate protection. On the one hand there is a ban on the installation of new oil heaters from 2026 onwards. Anyone who has their old oil heating system replaced by a more climate-friendly model should receive an exchange premium. On the other hand, the Cabinet passed a bill on the new CO2 price. The aim is to make climate-damaging heating and motor fuels more expensive. According to this, more than 4,000 companies that market fuel, heating oil or natural gas in Germany in the future should purchase pollution rights in the future.
