The magazine NATURE Energy published an article about a research study of the FCN. The study originated from a gGmbH-project („Modeling the Diffusion of Competing Residential Heating Systems“; dissertation by Carl Christian Michelsen) and was conducted by Professor Reinhard Madlener and Carl Christian Michelsen.

The research focused on analyzing what drives the decision of homeowners to adopt an innovative residential heating system. The research team conducted a large representative survey among homeowners in Germany with 2985 respondents. Based on the survey the researchers analyzed which parameters and variables seem to influence the decision of homeowners on which innovative residential heating system they would install, if they decided to opt for one of them at all.

The feature in the magazine NATURE Energy was referring to the publication in the Elsevier magazine Energy Policy.
