 Thermosiphon systems in Rio de Janeiro” The cooperation project between the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) and the federal housing bank CAIXA bears first fruits. A multi-family house in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro with 496 units was equipped with one thermosiphon system each. This installation serves as a showcase for this kind of technology, as it is the first in Rio de Janeiro which uses gas instead of electricity as an auxiliary heating source.
