Vitovalor

The latest innovation in heating technology

The incredibly efficient, cutting-edge Vitovalor PT2 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.

Vitovalor scoops two more UK awards in 2018

The fuel cell mCHP appliance won the 2018 Innovation of the Year: Technology - Physical and also Home Energy Product of the Year, at the Energy Awards ceremony in London.

The awards ceremony brought together over 600 of the most senior operators in the energy market, both local and international, to recognise and celebrate the very best of the energy industry. For more information, see Energy Awards 2018.

Key Benefits

Reduce costs and emissions

Heat more economically and save up to 40% on energy costs through efficient heating with the Vitovalor fuel cell. 

Exceptionally high energy efficiency and optimum coordination of all components are the key to significantly reduced energy costs. Particularly attractive: Own use of electricity drastically reduces your electricity bill, so constantly rising electricity prices don’t leave you cold.

Sustainability is a top priority, as well as savings

With a long service life of more than 80,000 operating hours as well as maintenance intervals of five years, the Viessmann fuel cell heating unit has become a truly sustainable investment.

Proven and reliable technology

An environmentally friendly energy source for fuel cells, hydrogen is in use in vehicles and ships already in operation, among other things. Fuel cell heating systems have been used in living spaces in Japan, for example, since 2009. Over 200,000 such systems are now in use there.

Viessmann‘s fuel cell heating unit incorporates a tried and tested fuel cell module from Panasonic. It has been specially adapted to the other components and guarantees a long service life, with a useful lifespan of more than 80,000 operating hours.

The benchmark for sustainable power generation

The Vitovalor is particularly energy-efficient. Electricity and heat is generated where it is needed, without losses in transmission. This results in up to 40 percent less consumption of fossil fuels compared to the conventional generation of electricity and heat, along with up to 30 percent CO2 savings. No wonder that the Vitovalor  has been awarded the the highest possible energy label: A++ in the energy efficiency class for heating.

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 40 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 PT2, 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.

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.

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 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 generates up to 35,000 kWh of power per year. That covers the baseline demand of most households.
