Partnering opportunity

Innovative controller for converting excess current into thermal energy is offered for distribution

Summary

A German company has designed an electrothermal station including a controller for converting excess current produced by a photovoltaic system into heat. The station contains all the vital hydraulic components and can be retrofitted into all heating and domestic hot water systems. CO2 emissions and heating costs are reduced. Partners for a commercial agency or distribution services agreement are sought.

Partner expertise sought

The company is looking for a commercial agency and distribution services agreement with companies working in the classic or renewable energy area. The partner should have a network in the sector and possibilties for installation. Partners could be craft, installers of energy solution and heating, construction,etc. The German company offers technical support to implement the technology in already existing or new domestic hotwater systems, photovoltaic and solar energy systems.

Description

A German company has designed an electrothermal station especially for using excess power produced by photovoltaic systems. The measuring device reliably detects excess current and the integrated controller redirects it to a steplessly variable electric heater for heating a water store. Thus, excess power can be stored as regenerative heat. Internal consumption can be increased while decreasing conventional heating costs. The intelligent control ensures an optimum store stratification so that even small amounts of excess power can be reliably converted into heat and power fluctuations can be balanced out. The controller becomes the missing link between the photovoltaic system and the heat generator. Characteristics are: ■ Intelligent control technology for optimum store stratification ■ Converts excess PV (photovoltaic) current into heat and stores it for later use ■ Integrated electric heater of up to 3 kW, steplessly variable and grid compliant- integrated electric heater is controlled very precisely and steeplessly variable ■ Easy to install and can be retrofitted into all heating and domestic hotwater systems, independend from the manufacturer of the existing system ■ integrated high-efficiency pump ■ Safety temperature limiter The company is looking for partners from the energy sector to implement the technology within a commercial agency or distribution services agreement. The German company will give technical support to implement the technology in already existing or new domestic hotwater systems, photovoltaic and solar energy.

Advantages and innovations

In comparison to other solutions this electrothermal station offers an optimised precise store stratification: - Thus even small amounts of excess power can be reliably converted into heat. - This results in more independence, decreased heating costs and less CO2 emissions.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
