The expected rise in electricity bills that will be undertaken by utilities passing onto consumers the rate that the government has announced, will lead many of these to start thinking of solutions to reduce this increase. The use of renewable technologies will be sooner than later, already taken into account by construction companies that will see the implementation of these resources as an added value to the home itself. In this sense, energy companies are preparing to offer installers the necessary tools to adapt to changes.
On 4 October an agreement was signed between Gas Natural and Junkers through which both parties are committed to promoting the use of hybrid solutions, based on the combined use of two technologies in the area of air conditioning, one of which is to be renewable. At the same time, both companies will participate in technical outreach conferences and carry out studies that demonstrate the usefulness of hybrid solutions in the residential and tertiary sectors, as well as promote the connection of new supply points to the natural gas distribution network. This work is about cooperating in the promotion of an efficient thermal solution, both technically and environmentally and disclosing a technology that will soon reach a higher profile due to its inclusion in the ErP Directive, which establishes a set of ecological design requirements applicable to energy-using products.
The signing of the cooperation agreement took place in the premises of Gas Natural headquarters in Madrid, between Jose Ignacio Mestre Martinez, CEO of Bosch Thermotechnology in Iberia, in representation of Junkers (Bosch Group) and José María Gil Aizpuru, CEO of Gas Natural Distribución.
Junkers, a brand comprised in the Thermotechnology division of the Bosch Group, in its current program offers a wide range of solutions for heating, hot water and air conditioning that protect both the environment and the natural resources. The aim is to meet the necessary comfort requirements with the lowest energy costs and the least emissions. A good example is the boiler CerapurSolar that operates as an integrated high efficiency system, suitable for solar collectors to produce hot water for sanitary use andheating.
SimilarlythecombinationofCerapurcondensing boilers and Supraeco heat pumps from Junkers constitute hybrid solutions that allow optimal use of resources and savings, the primary motivation for choosing these innovative high efficiency integrated systems from Junkers.
