Vitovalor Fuel Cell
Vitovalor

The latest innovation in heating technology

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.

Reduce costs and emissions

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 long term savings whilst also protecting the climate through lower CO2 emissions.

Proven and reliable technology

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.

Generate your own power

Vitovalor is the innovative alternative for decentralised power generation. Against the backdrop of discussions on energy and rising electricity prices, this solution is steadily gaining in relevance. In the future, CHP technology will be an important part of central power generation.

Three reasons to choose a fuel cell heating appliance

  • Generate heat and power today with the latest technology: put your money on futureproof heating using hydrogen and natural gas.
  • Make yourself more independent of rising electricity prices by using the fuel cell to generate power.
  • Heat more economically and save up to 30 percent energy costs through efficient heating with the fuel cell. This allows you to make long term savings whilst also protecting the climate through lower CO2 emissions!

The perfect choice for larger homes

Vitovalor, the fuel cell from 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.

Proven and reliable: technology from Viessmann and Panasonic

As with all innovations from Viessmann, reliability and durability are the top priorities when it comes to the new fuel cell heating appliance as well. This is why a proven fuel cell module from Panasonic is used in 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.

Anticipates your needs: self-learning energy manager

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.

Additional power storage systems

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 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 Vitovalor.

Using a tablet or smartphone, you can access the latest data on heat and power generation and control the fuel cell boiler remotely. The standard integral remote monitoring system allows the heating contractor to keep a constant eye on the system.

Additional features

Vitovalor

With an output of 1 kW the fuel cell module covers most of the heat demand. If more heat is required, the gas condensing boiler switches on automatically – for example, on particularly cold days or if a lot of hot water is used within a short period of time. At the same time, the Vitovalor 300‑P generates up to 16.5 kWh of power per day. That covers the baseline demand of most households.
