Solar energy is one of the fastest growing energy systems in the world. In Europe and the United States, solar powered generating capacity increases constantly. Covering the domestic hot water and heating by solar energy helps to reduce the fossil and electrical energy, therefore reducing CO2 emissions and protecting the environment.
Siemens is providing small and large scale solar energy solutions for industrial, commercial, and residential customers. A wide range of applications has specially been developed and optimized for the use of solar energy for space heating and domestic hot water systems.
Advantages of solar energy:
Solar energy is clean, renewable and sustainable, therefore environmentally friendly
It is generated where it is needed
After the coverage of the initial investment the energy from the sun is practically free
The payback period for the investment is rather short, depending on the amount of energy used
The savings are immediate and for many years
Solar systems are nearly maintenance free and will last for decades
and finally solar energy reduces the dependency on other energy sources
