Heating & Cooling

Energy saving potential of solar thermal

In Europe heating and domestic water heating accounts for more than 65% of the entire heating demand and almost 40% of the total final energy demand. Large-scale solar systems could immediately replace, for example, up to 10 % of the heating demand, and thereby save 30 million tons of CO2 every year.

Proven a thousand times

By 2013, over 60,000 solar thermal systems based on the Aqua Solar System are in use all over Europe. This system has made solar heating simple, economic and even self-evident. High temperatures during any season provide high annual yields with minimal storage needs.

Solar Cooling

In addition to heating during winter, solar cooling is a great option for using solar heat in the summer. In complying climates or for industrial applications, solar cooling can also be the main purpose of the solar thermal system. By 2013, 17 cooling systems from Ritter XL Solar based on the Aqua Solar System had already gone into operation, among them two with more than 1,000 m² that have proven their effectiveness since 2007 and 2009 respectively.

Managing Director Solar Experience

“Large buildings whether new or old, will soon have to generate a large part of their energy consumption by themselves. Ritter XL collectors provide even in small roof-area highly efficient solar heat up to 130 °C. Even at south facades the winter sun allows for high solar fractions and facade-integrated CPC collectors provide already heat and sun protection simultaneously in an attractive combination. The operation with water is always the key for easy integration in the heating and cooling system.”
