European Environmental Bureau: German medium-sized company STIEBEL ELTRON is "Leader" of the Energy Transition 2023
Stiebel Eltron is one of the leading suppliers of climate-friendly heating technology in Europe: the entire product range of the German medium-sized company is compatible with climate targets. According to market analysis by the European Environmental Bureau (EEB), companies in this "Leaders" group are leading the energy turnaround in boiler rooms - they are already setting stricter standards for their own technologies than required by law. The European Environmental Bureau (EEB) has examined the portfolios of the largest heating manufacturers on the European market and rated the best companies with "Leader" status.
"We are delighted to receive this award from the European Environmental Bureau, which already recognises all Stiebel Eltron appliances as climate-friendly," says Dr. Kai Schiefelbein, Managing Director of the Stiebel Eltron Group. "Environmentally friendly heat pumps hvae been the central recipe for success in our company history for decades. On this basis, we are now an experienced specialist for the energy turnaround in boiler rooms."
Sluggish heat transition in Europe: 75 percent fossil-fuel heating systems
Heat pumps are more in demand today than ever before, because three quarters of the buildings in the European Union are still heated with fossil fuels. The building sector is responsible for 36 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the EU - yet clean technologies for heating rooms have existed for a long time.
"The switch to environmentally friendly technology with renewable energies must be pushed further," says Dr Schiefelbein. "The lifetime of a heating system is about 20 to 25 years. In order to achieve the goal of climate neutrality by 2050, the heat transition is therefore already of great urgency today. Electricity-driven heat pump technology plays a key role in this. It mainly uses freely available energy from the air, the ground or groundwater and thus renewable, unlimited energy sources. At the same time, we become independent of fossil energy imports."
