Rinnai will exhibit the world’s first 100% hydrogen combustion for continuous flow hot water heaters at InstallerSHOW 2023.
Rinnai committed significant financial and staff resources into this new appliance technology in creating a supremely efficient-functioning continuous flow hot water system fuelled by 100% hydrogen.
Current UK Rinnai product ranges, both domestic and commercial, are ‘hydrogen blends-ready’ – meaning that units will accept the proposed 20% hydrogen/natural gas blend. Rinnai UK is one of the first manufacturers display the I2HY20 gas category certificate for all its products.
For Rinnai UK, Chris Goggin, Operations Director, comments, “We want to show all visitors to InstallerSHOW 2023 that if we can develop a 100% hydrogen combustion technology that emits no CO2 at all, we can help achieve carbon neutrality. Rinnai’s 100% hydrogen combustion water heater models are fully able to contribute significantly towards cutting emissions.
“We are delighted to see this development coming to market after a period of intense research and design work conducted on a global scale. The product quality of our range of products, coupled with service excellence to all customers, is and always will be our priority. We have responded to the need for decarbonisation by re-designing those parts of our products that warranted it – and we have recognised the fact that all fuels will factor in the future. Hence, we have launched our H3 initiative of Hydrogen, Hybrid and Heat Pump so that our customers have the best possible choices to assist them maximise their own energy efficiency programmes.”
Rinnai plans to continue researching and developing next generation decarbonising technology, and is determined to introduce combustion technology that encourages a greater sense of customer convenience and clean air quality.
