The heating transition starts in buildings. This means that cities and municipalities, with their large number of buildings, play a crucial role on the path to carbon neutrality. What’s the best way to structure the energy transition and heating transition as soon as possible and as successfully as possible? Large heat pumps such as the SPECTRUM Water and thermeco2 can make an important contribution to this endeavour
Food production is one of the most sensitive industries. In this sector, heating supply requirements are particularly exacting. What reliable solutions does ENGIE Refrigeration provide to meet these requirements? The expert Frank Glaser, a key account manager for industrial and commercial heating at ENGIE Refrigeration, explains using the Osatina Group as an example.
For which areas are applications with heat recovery suitable ? And how does this technology help operating companies lower their costs? Our expert Markus Enzensperger answers these questions in our interview.
What distinguishes the thermeco2 high-temperature heat pump from ENGIE Refrigeration? For which applications is it especially suitable – and how can this model save money in buildings, districts and industry? The expert Frank Glaser, a key account manager for industrial and commercial heating at ENGIE Refrigeration, explains all this in our interview.
How can data centres become more green? Ludwigsburg District Office asked itself that very question in relation to its in-house data centre. It found its answer with ENGIE Refrigeration. A machine type HHR 130 thermeco2 high-temperature heat pump with refrigeration now provides sustainable server cooling on site.
Precise cooling with very narrow temperature tolerances and the smallest possible carbon footprint: for many planners and operators, this describes their perfect refrigeration supply. ENGIE Refrigeration meets these requirements in a sustainable manner with its AMONUM chiller. This model uses the natural refrigerant ammonia and is thus extremely eco-friendly.
Efficient, energy-saving and eco-friendly: thermeco2 high-temperature heat pumps from ENGIE Refrigeration are the number one choice for users when it comes to sustainable heating. The models feature combined heating and cooling, which guarantees maximum efficiency and excellent COP values. This is how thermeco2 high-temperature heat pumps are assisting industrial businesses and city districts in particular on their path to carbon neutrality.
Climate protection is currently at the heart of numerous political measures. These include the F-gas Regulation, which came into effect on 1 January 2015 and is designed to minimise the use of gases that are harmful to the environment. Consequently, the refrigeration and climate control industry is seeking out natural refrigerants that can provide an environmentally friendly alternative to refrigerants with a high GWP value (Global Warming Potential). Ammonia is such a natural refrigerant.
CO2 is a natural refrigerant that is especially suitable for efficiently operating hot and cold thermal storage units. And it is exceptionally safe to use. CO2 – with the technical name R-744 – is assigned to safety class A1 because it is neither toxic nor flammable. Jörn Stiegelmeier, head of technology and development at ENGIE Refrigeration, answers common questions about CO2 as a refrigerant.
CO2 heat pumps use energy from the environment to generate heat. Non-flammable carbon dioxide is an exceptionally eco-friendly refrigerant, so CO2 heat pumps can considerably reduce harmful emissions. CO2 is also an excellent refrigerant because it is not flammable and there is an abundance of it on earth.
The natural refrigerant CO2 is kind to the environment and exceptionally safe to use – and it has several other advantages. You will find more details in our expert interview!
