A new generation boiler
The smart boiler ensures that the user has enough warm water. It is also smarter in the use of natural resources.
What kind of problem is the project trying to solve?
The purpose of Kaukora Oy's Jäspi Smart Boiler project is to develop a new generation hot water supply boiler whose versatile features serve the needs of both end users and the national energy network. The boiler's highly developed self-diagnostics provide users with information about the boiler's operations and the consumer habits for warm domestic water at the equipment's installation location.
The progressive technology of the boiler is utilised in the implementation of a nation-wide virtual powerplant/energy reserve. Every day, hot water supply boilers in households consume a significant amount of electrical energy, and a notable amount of energy is stored in the equipment - not only in Finland, but also globally. It is possible to use this energy reserve for compensating for the daily peaks in electricity consumption and, similarly, for storing the peaks in production of renewable energy.
Objective: cooperation and new models
In order to utilise the product to its full potential, it is important to engage many different operators in the activities in addition to developing the technical equipment. Collaboration that benefits everyone involved is needed between at least all members of the current supply chain, the energy sector and possibly even the authorities. This allows us to make the energy consumption of the future more sustainable and profitable.
The smart boiler for domestic water will be in test use during 2017. After this, it will be made commercially available. This novel technical product enables new kinds of commercial models developed with partners which will result in making the hot water supply boiler, hot water and additional services available for end users in new ways.
Both the end user and the national energy network. The boiler's highly developed self-diagnostics provide users with information about the boiler's operations and the consumer habits for warm domestic water at the equipment's installation location.
