Hitachi Smart ATW Heat Pumps
2017/07/15
The entire range of Hitachi Yutaki air-to-water (ATW) heat pumps is awarded the Smart Grid Ready label. This means that all Hitachi heating and domestic hot water (DHW) series can be integrated in an intelligent power grid.
 
The share of renewable energies in the company’s energy system is increasing. This is leading to more and more load fluctuations in the power supply. The main objective is to be able to balance electricity production and consumption in an intelligent manner. More flexible systems are becoming mandatory to better match these new sources of electricity.
 
Smart grids make it possible to interconnect utilities, power plants and consumers of electricity. Load distribution can thus be performed intelligently within the power grid. Heat pumps are seen as one of the most favorable technologies for demand response management. Smart Grid Ready heat pumps are able to collect information such as external signals from the energy suppliers. Smart Grid function is standard on all Hitachi heating and DHW products. The Yutaki series can receive external signals from a switching device and adapt their operation accordingly. End-users of Smart Grid Ready heat pumps can benefit from a preferential price from utilities. In addition to this, several European countries including Germany have already implemented incentives for consumers who purchase Smart Grid Ready heat pumps.
