Germany: ISH 2015 and Its Prominent Novelties

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 30, 2015
KiotoManagers from four different companies showcasing one innovation – a rare occurrence, even at a large fair like the ISH 2015 in Frankfurt. At the beginning of March, Rudolf Pfeil, CEO of Resol, Christian Beckmann, Sales Manager Key Account and OEM at Wilo, Günter Kohlmaier, CEO of Kioto Solar, and Karsten Pillukeit, CEO of Esbe Group (from left), jointly presented the newly developed fresh water module, Fresh Hydro, at the booth of Kioto Solar. Thanks to a patented temperature control, the fresh water module offers rapid response times without over- or undershooting. The developers have promised a comfortable showering experience at 40 to 160 litres per minute and a temperature of 45 °C. The fresh water system was one of a number of solar thermal innovations at the ISH which were worth taking a closer look.

Germany: H.M. Heizkörper Plans to Mass-Produce Latent Heat Storage Units

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 13, 2014
ThermobatterieThe Thermobatterie (English: thermal battery), a latent heat storage unit by German manufacturer H.M. Heizkörper, makes it possible to absorb generated thermal energy and store up to two-thirds of it as latent heat without time restraints or heat losses. If required, the energy can later be released in suitable amounts and used in different application areas. The other third of the absorbed thermal energy will be stored conventionally as sensible heat, meaning heat that can be felt physically. solarthermalworld.org spoke with Project Manager Michael Sigwanz about the battery’s market potential and target groups and the advantages of a modular design. The photo shows the Thermobatterie in a single-family-house in Büttstedt, Germany.
