Heliotherm Nederland

What makes real home comfort? The assurance of using energy and a budget in a conserving manner, perhaps also the comfortable use of the heat pump control and maintenance, or simply the feeling of being all around more energy independent? Home living comfort is a small sum of all these needs. That is why Heliotherm heat pumps are user friendly, quiet in operation and state of the art manufactured. It is more than technical sophistication: it is the passion of excellence and the joy of energy efficient development; which drives Heliotherm to produce innovations, new patents and high quality implementation

A comparison of the life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of European heavy-duty vehicles and fuels

whitePaper | February 5, 2023

Transport is the largest producer of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the European Union (EU), contributing almost 30% to the total. Heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs), primarily commercial trucks and buses, are responsible for 26% of these emissions. Adoption of electric vehicles is expanding in the light-duty sector in Europe, but the heavy-duty sector relies almost entirely on internal combustion (diesel) powertrains; in 2021, zero emission HDVs represented only 1% of new HDV registrations in the EU.

THE BUSINESS OF STANDALONE GRID-SCALE ENERGY STORAGE

whitePaper | January 16, 2020

In 1800, Alessandro Volta invented the first battery, which came to be known as the voltaic pile. It was the first device to provide a steady supply of energy. Batteries have come a long way since then. In the 1970s, lithium-ion batteries were commercialized for the first time. Now they are a crucial component in revolutionizing and enabling continued renewable penetration on the US electrical grid.

The Hydrogen Economy

whitePaper | October 10, 2022

Climate change and geopolitical turmoil require a radical transformation of today’s fossil fuelbased economy into a renewable energy system. Electricity generation from wind and solar is subject to strong daily and seasonal fluctuations. The potential to produce green electricity also varies greatly geographically. In this context, hydrogen provides an optimal solution for bridging the gap between the volatile generation and the need to supply green energy on-demand across all sectors.

Sustainability trends to act on in 2023

whitePaper | July 21, 2023

The effects of climate change on our lives and economies have become unavoidably apparent. In 2021, the third assessment report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) observed increased warming of the Earth’s surface caused primarily by human activity, with projected increases to rising sea levels and the frequency of heat waves.

Utilities must focus on key energy transitiontechnology gaps to support grid stability

whitePaper | August 30, 2022

New renewable generation capacity is important as utilities retire existing coal plants. But often these new solar and wind resources are far from urban or industrial centers where the energy is needed, presenting transmission and distribution challenges. Utilities must find reliable methods to incorporate the energy mix from these green energy sources and maintain grid flexibility, while balancing supply and demand.
