The energy potential from wind is caught by vertical or horizontal rotor-blades and transformed into electric energy by a generator within a mechanical process. Small wind turbines are used in residential areas. These can generate energy independent of weather conditions and seasons. A wind power system is a real alternative to photovoltaics.
The sun (solar) is pure energy. Parts of this can be transformed into warmth (thermal). Solar collectors capture the warmth of the sun on a concentrated surface and introduce it into a thermal cycle so that it can be used (in the household, for example).
The photovoltaic (PV) effect, which is also known as photovoltaics, is a process during which visible irradiation from the sun (light particles or photons) are transformed into electric energy (volt). About 60 elementary solar cells constitute a PV module. Environment-friendly electric energy can be generated with a few modules which have been integrated into a system.
We select our street lighting systems according to important criteria such as exclusively renewable energy sources, modern and stable devices and components and specific security gadgets in order to guarantee their unlimited use in extreme climatic conditions. In our large portfolio we have included ideal lighting solutions for private and business customers.
A solar carport is more than a protection for your vehicle against weather conditions. Equipped with PV it becomes an energy generating system. This way, it is possible to provide an electrically powered vehicle with direct environmentally friendly energy. The energy can also be used in the house or fed into the public electricity grid.
The LED technology is a very efficient electric lighting technology. With an optimized temperature management LEDs are expected to work in conditions of normal usage for about 50,000 hours. VOLTPOOL relies on good and robust components which also anticipate the design for all areas of use.
An infrared heater makes use of a very effective technology to produce warmth from electric energy. Immediately after switching on the device heat is discharged through radiation and reflection without warming the air. As opposed to common heaters, the infrared heater is an efficient way of heating with electricity.
A heat pump is a thermo-mechanical system which extracts low temperature thermal energy from the surrounding air, water or ground and emits it with a higher temperature after processing in a cycle. A heat pump is an excellent solution for the use of warm water or for supporting the heating system.
A charging station is a piece of electro-technical equipment, i.e. an enlargement of a solar carport. The battery of an electric vehicle can be charged with locally produced energy. A charging station can also be used independently of a solar carport. VOLTPOOL generally relies on components which use the advantages of renewable energy sources.
Hot water storage tank
A hot water storage tank is a container which is thermally highly insolated. It is suitable for the storage and output as well as the production of warm water. Depending on the thermal source other names such as buffer storage, electric boiler etc. can be applied. VOLTPOOL relies exclusively on technologies that use renewable energy sources such as solar collectors or heat pumps.
The ideal organization of (optimally) self-produced energy helps to use this energy in an economic and consumer-optimized way. A gentle use of energy resources contributes to CO2 reduction and protection of the environment.
In order to use electricity produced by photovoltaics and some wind systems in the household it needs to be transformed directly after it has been generated. The inverter is a device which transforms direct current into alternating current and renders it applicable for local electricity consumption. It also regulates the optimal network integration into the power grid.
A battery enables an effective storage of electric energy from renewable sources. This way electric devices can be provided with green energy even at times when energy production is impossible or insufficient. VOLTPOOL relies on three battery technologies: lead, lithium and vanadium.
