AC ELWA 2 wins German Design Award 2024

Efficient heating meets outstanding design: In the category of "Excellent Product Design – Energy," AC ELWA 2 has been awarded with the title "Winner".

This award shows that an eco-conscious lifestyle can also be aesthetically pleasing. "AC ELWA 2 transforms surplus solar power into hot water, thereby increasing self-sufficiency. It's a purposeful product that strikingly combines high-tech performance with a clear and dynamic design language," states the jury of this prestigious award, acknowledging our linearly controlled hot water preparation device for grid-connected photovoltaic systems.

Our successor to the AC ELWA-E puts increased emphasis on sustainability and user-friendliness. The extended power control range and the display are significant advancements that not only enhance the technical aspects but also the visual appeal of our AC ELWA 2. This allows for self-consumption of up to 75%, representing the most cost-effective path to increased self-consumption and increased independence!

The design of our AC ELWA 2 is considerably more compact compared to its predecessor. The intuitive display on the electronic unit enables easy operation through straightforward settings and visualization of core functions directly on the solar-electric heating element."
