A flexible solution
There is no silver bullet in terms of climate solutions. With a variety of options and possible scenarios for the future, commercial users are looking for flexible and future-proof solutions.
“As we navigate the road to a fossil-free society, we want to deliver flexibility for our customers. With this in mind, we’re currently working to make our full range of commercial boilers in Europe 100% hydrogen ready. Most boilers in our current portfolio are 20% hydrogen ready, but we will also be launching a conversion kit for future boilers to switch from natural gas to 100% hydrogen,” says Cabral. “This will allow commercial users to prepare themselves for the fuel switch, offering them full flexibility.”
Another important technology in BDR Thermea’s value proposition is the heat pump, which plays its own role in enabling buildings of all types to decarbonise. A hybrid set-up combining the pure hydrogen boiler and the heat pump offers users the chance to reap the benefits of both devices. And given hydrogen’s power storage capability, the boiler can substitute for the heat pump in moments of peak electricity demand.
