General information

Short Summary
An Italian SME has developed an innovative water boiler conforming to the incoming rules. The company is looking for partners interested in starting boiler production or supporting them with an investment agreement. A licence agreement can be considered as well.
Full Description
The European Union has approved the abolition of fossil fuel boilers to reduce emissions from 2029. Switching from instantaneous water heaters to storage systems entails a drop in comfort, in particular the limited amount of usable hot water and the large amount of space the tank will occupy within the home. Energy saving will be increasingly pertinent to buyers. The developed solution overcomes all these problems. The Italian developer has studied and created an electric water heater optimising consumption and performance.
