The group of combustion systems in the residential and commercial/institutional sectors is very diverse with regard to installation design and size. It covers a spectrum that includes individual room furnaces for solid fuels with a rated thermal output of approximately 4 kW (e.g. fireplaces, ovens), oil and gas furnaces used to generate room heat and hot water (e.g. central heating boilers), hand-fed and automatically fed wood-burning furnaces in the commercial sector.

Besides the stationary combustion systems mentioned, also mobile sources are included in these sectors: lawn mowers and motor saws in NFR 1.A.4.b ii - Households & Gardening as well as vehicles and other machinery used in NFR 1.A.4.c ii - Agriculture (and Forestry) and the emissions of the German deep sea fishing fleet under NFR 1.A.4.c iii - National Fishing. - No separate estimates are provided for NFR 1.A.4.a ii - Commercial / Institutional: Mobile as there are no consumption data available.
