How It Works
The sun heats up the liquid in the solar panels on the roof. The heat from the solar liquid is transferred to a stratified charging module which charges the backup tank. According to the energy needs, hygienic domestic hot water may be produced instantaneously, either centralized or decentralized. A common solution for or retrofitting applications is the continuous hot water pre-heating of the existing hot water tank. The COMFORT E XL solutions may also ideally be configured to support room heating and/or swimming pool heating.
Solar energy for hot water and heating is the most effective renewable energy solution, and SONNENKRAFT’s high quality large scale solutions offer important savings on-going energy costs of any type of project with (high) hot water or heating demand.
Combustion of oil and gas fossil fuels is considered to be the largest contributing factor to the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Using solar energy for the production of hot water and heating s, especially in large installations with high energy demand, can give considerable reductions of CO2 emissions.
Oil and gas are scarce resources that will run out of over time. The future price is highly uncertain. During the last 10 years the oil price has increased by 300 %. Using as much solar energy as possible reduces the user's dependency on other energy sources, and so removes the worry about increasing fossil fuel prices and possible future scarce supply.
