For Viessmann, innovating without giving top priority to reliability and durability would be unimaginable. With the new fuel cell boiler, Viessmann once again turned to proven technology. This is why the Vitovalor was developed in cooperation with Panasonic. The fuel cell module in the Vitovalor is sourced from Panasonic. Panasonic has manufactured more than 34,000 appliances in series production for the Japanese market.

Turning away from nuclear power, reducing power generation from coal-fired power stations, expanding the use of renewables: innovative heating technologies like the Vitovalor fuel cell boiler bring these goals within reach.
The incredibly efficient, cutting-edge Vitovalor represents the latest in heating technology. It provides simultaneous heating and hot water using advanced fuel cell technology to convert hydrogen into energy, offering independence from rising electricity prices. The system combines heat and power generation on a very small footprint and offers considerably higher electrical efficiency than that available through current combined heat and power (CHP) solutions; making it the ideal future-thinking energy centre for modern family homes.
Heat more economically and save up to 30% on energy costs through efficient heating with the Vitovalor fuel cell.
The cutting edge technology allows you to make significant long term savings whilst also protecting the climate through lower CO2 emissions.
The innovative Vitovalor features a proven fuel cell module from Panasonic within the micro CHP unit.
Viessmann has integrated this fuel cell, proven in more than 200,000 applications in Japan, into a perfectly matched heating system with gas condensing boiler, DHW cylinder and control unit for maximum reliability.
The Vitovalor is a cutting-edge, innovative alternative for decentralised power generation.
Against the backdrop of discussions on energy and rising electricity prices and even concerns over future energy stability, this solution is steadily gaining in relevance. In the future, CHP technology will be an important part of central power generation, allowing homes to cater for almost all of their energy requirements independently to the grid.
The Vitovalor fuel cell micro CHP unitfrom Viessmann is the ideal energy centre for a modern detached or semi-detached house. The system combines heat and power generation on a very small footprint. Vitovalor offers considerably higher electrical efficiency than that available through current combined heat and power (CHP) solutions. This reduces the amount of heat extracted and makes the fuel cell heating appliance particularly suitable for use in new builds and renovations as well as offering significant long term savings on energy.
The fuel cell heating appliances are heat led and power-optimised. The integrated energy manager is adaptive and responds to your individual requirements.
This means that it only starts the natural gas/hydrogen driven heating appliance when it is worthwhile – when sufficiently long runtimes are expected and therefore corresponding power generation and on-site utilisation.
The Vitocharge power storage system from Viessmann raises the on-site consumption rate in a household significantly. If the fuel cell heating appliance generates more power than is currently required, the surplus is generally exported to the grid. However, by combining the Vitovalor with the Vitocharge power storage system, this power can be stored and used at a later time. This translates into a reduction of additional, expensive power drawn from the grid. For more information, go to Energy systems for the Vitovalor.
