Driving Climate Protection Forward Together The WINGAS PartnerBonus Programmes
The climate goal set by the Federal Government is to achieve a CO2 reduction of at least 80 percent (from the 1990 baseline) by 2050. Especially the heating market holds a huge savings potential. Modern gas efficiency technologies in the heating market help to reduce emissions and save costs.
With the PartnerBonus Programmes, WINGAS and the device manufacturer Viessmann together with WINGAS municipal utility customers support the use of innovative gas technologies in single- and multi-family houses – from the gas condensing boiler to the fuel cell.
Climate PartnerBonus With special incentive for using Viessmann appliances
This Climate-PartnerBonus intends to encourage end-consumers to use state-of-the-art gas-efficient technologies. This energy efficiency incentive programme provides for WINGAS and municipal utilities to jointly offer the end-customer financial support to purchase a variety of efficient low-power heating technologies. The funds available under the programme depend on the potential for CO2 savings of the device installed. If Viessmann appliances are used, the manufacturer will make an additional contribution on the behalf of customers.
Micro CHP PartnerBonus With special incentive for using Viessmann appliances
In domestic energy production, environmentally friendly combined heat and power plants (micro-CHP) harbour great potentials. By using fuel cells with an electrical efficiency of more than 30 per cent, highly efficient solutions allow to simultaneously produce electricity and heat. Operating costs (electricity and heat) for home fuel cells are by far the lowest compared with other systems – though investment costs are still quite high.
The energy efficiency incentive Micro CHP PartnerBonus provides funding to WINGAS clients that enables them to offer end-customers the contract-based use of fuel cells with a power range up to 3 kWel. If Viessmann appliances are used, the manufacturer will make an additional contribution on the behalf of customers.
Info: How do fuel cells work?
Fuel cells generate a hydrogen-rich gas through an electrochemical process using natural gas at a pre-stage, namely the reforming process.
This hydrogen-rich gas combines with oxygen from the ambient air to produce – by performing “electrolysis in reverse” – direct electric current, heat and water. Electricity and heat are used for domestic consumption.
The PartnerBonus Programmes offer you the following benefits:
You promote highly efficient and innovative natural gas technologies as an active contribution in achieving climate targets.
Secure and extend your customer base.
