Innovation

Innovation has largely contributed to Remeha’s leading position in the European heating market. By investing in R&D, Remeha has become an important player in the market for sustainable and high efficiency heating products. Already in 1980, Remeha played a pioneering role in the development of the first generation of high efficiency boilers. Subsequently, Remeha’s 'Reminox burner technology' proved an important step in making boilers more environment-friendly by dramatically reducing the emission of toxic gases.

Remeha also leads the present-day trend towards increasingly energy efficient and environment-friendly heating products, such as condensing commercial and domestic boilers, renewable energy products and the highly anticipated micro-CHP unit.

Micro-CHP
Micro-CHP refers to the small-scale production of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) for individual commercial buildings and homes. CHP, or cogeneration, is the simultaneous production of useful heat and electricity from a single source. It provides an excellent low (or zero) carbon dioxide alternative to a gas boiler. Micro-CHP units meet the demand for space heating and hot water whilst providing electricity to supplement or replace the grid supply.

The world’s first micro-CHP combi boiler: the Remeha eVita
Remeha is proud to have developed the world’s first micro-CHP combi boiler, the Remeha eVita. The eVita boiler operates in the same way as a normal high-performance boiler. It is controlled by means of a room thermostat and provides high-efficiency heating and domestic hot water.

In addition, the eVita also generates up to 1 kW of electricity through a maintenance free Stirling engine, as soon as the unit is running to provide heat. On a yearly basis, this allows an average household to generate about two-thirds of its own electricity consumption using the eVita, thus achieving a significant reduction of carbon dioxide emissions (± 1,000 kg) and energy costs (as much as 25% or ± €300 to €400). The Remeha eVita is an innovation that makes a significant contribution to a sustainable future.
