Decarbonising heat in the built environment
Naked Energy developed VirtuHOT and VirtuPVT solar collectors addressing heat (domestic hot water and space heating) in the built environment, as well as the lower range of industrial process heat. The Virtu product range has been designed for end-consumers with a constant heat demand such as: hospitals, new residential developments, multi-dwelling residential, food & beverage manufacturers, pulp and paper manufacturers, hotels and leisure centres. VirtuHOT delivers heat up to 120C, whereas VirtuPVT delivers heat up to 80C as well as electricity.
