High-tech for tomorrow’s climate

A building’s heating supply plays a key role in the energy revolution and climate protection: efficient heating technology opens up enormous energy saving potential and allows a marked reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

Highly efficient heating technology: the most powerful instrument

The European Union uses more than 40 per cent of its overall primary energy in and for buildings – with around 85 per cent of this used to heat rooms and generate hot water.

The highest percentage of energy consumption and main source of CO₂ emissions therefore stem from keeping our buildings warm. Outdated heating technology is often to blame for this. In sum: an energy revolution and climate protection can only occur where efficient heating systems have been installed.

This is where the Vaillant Group comes in: drawing on highly efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning technology, our products harness huge savings potential, thus protecting resources and the environment.

CO₂ emissions in Germany could be reduced by 55 million tonnes every year using modern technology. This is roughly equivalent to the entire annual CO₂ output of Portugal.

  • 40%

    of all primary energy within the EU is used in and for buildings.

  • 85%

    of this is needed to heat rooms and generate hot water.

  • 78%

    of heating systems in Germany are outdated.

Climate change is largely home-made, in the truest sense of the word – residential homes and households consume more energy and produce more greenhouse gases than the industrial and transport sectors. The energy revolution can therefore only be successful if it takes into consideration the heating technology used in our homes. This means exchanging outdated heating systems for highly efficient, individual systems.

Vaillant Group products already make it possible to generate heating with virtually no energy loss using conventional energy sources. Based on renewable forms of energy, our technologies extract a large proportion of the heat requirement from the environment at no cost and in an eco-friendly way. Intelligent systems combine components from the two areas to further optimise the balance between energy requirements and the environment.

As a leading provider of heating, ventilation and air conditioning technology, the Vaillant Group is thus hugely influential when it comes to shaping the energy revolution.

Micro- and mini-combined heat and power systems

Combined heat and power systems work incredibly effectively with an extremely high overall efficiency factor of over 90 per cent, simultaneously generating both electricity and heating in the building itself. This is far more energy-efficient than keeping the two separate, i.e. generating electricity from a conventional power plant on the one hand while using an ordinary domestic heating system on the other.

Compact gas-condensing technology

The majority of our sales is apportioned to efficient condensing boilers, which use the energy source of gas up to the physical limit and retain almost all the energy generated. Even the residual heat contained in the exhaust gases is fed into the heating circuit. Compared with older heating devices, a modern condensing boiler uses up to 30 per cent less energy and also reduces CO₂ emissions by 30 per cent.

Heat from renewable energies

Ever more often, renewable energies are sourced for heat generation and warm water supply. Our product range in the green energy segment includes everything from solar thermal systems to pellet boilers and heat pump technologies.

Resource-efficient systems

Our wide-ranging technological expertise allows us to position our company in the market as a one-stop system supplier – the Vaillant Group develops customised solutions which intelligently combine several energy sources and components within one system. The integration of renewable energy sources significantly reduces fuel costs.
