Energy-saving water heater development bottlenecks need to break through

Energy-saving water heater development bottlenecks need to break through With the innovation and progress of technology, the water heater market will further expand toward new energy sources. Products with low carbon, energy saving, and environmental protection characteristics will become the mainstream, integrating various energy sources such as gas, electric energy, solar energy, and air energy (heat pump). Integrated water heaters or will burst out of strong growth potential.

In recent years, energy shortages are an indisputable fact. Under the favorable conditions of the continuous promotion of global energy conservation and emission reduction strategies, the introduction of national incentive policies, and the significant improvement in the level of product technology, new energy sources such as solar energy and air power have been developed. Utilization is elevated to a new strategic height.

Especially in the field of water heaters, from gas water heaters to electric water heaters, to solar water heaters and air source heat pump water heaters, nowadays, "four points of the world" has already reached a foregone conclusion. Recently, the implementation of the new energy-saving subsidy policy has made it possible for the air that has pushed hard for 10 years to achieve "prestige," gaining national recognition. Up to now, almost all mainstream water heater companies have introduced air energy water heaters. Not only that, but some companies have also integrated electric water heaters and gas water heater technologies with air energy water heaters to introduce integrated water heaters.

It can be foreseen that with the technological innovation and advancement, the water heater market will further expand toward new energy sources. Products with low carbon, energy saving, and environmental protection characteristics will become the mainstream, combining various energy sources such as gas, electric energy, solar energy and air energy. Integrated water heaters or will burst out of strong growth potential.

Solar and air energy sniping policies boost the development of energy-saving water heaters. Bottlenecks still need to be broken. Since 2008 and 2009, gas-fired water heaters and storage-type electric water heaters have been incorporated into energy efficiency regulatory systems, and energy-efficiency labels have been posted. The water heater industry has also begun to With a wave of energy-saving technology upgrades, major mainstream companies began a fierce competition in energy-saving technologies. In 2010, as the competition continued to upgrade, condensing water heaters, heat pump water heaters, electric and solar integrated water heaters, gas and solar integrated water heaters have appeared in the market.

Compared with 2010, the water heater market pattern in 2011 has changed significantly. According to statistics, in 2011 the market share of electric water heaters fell by 2.33%; the market share of gas water heaters only increased by 1.05%; the market share of solar water heaters fell by 0.71% year-on-year; while the market share of air-energy water heaters increased by 2.01% year-on-year, and the market share reached 9.53%. .

In 2011, due to the economic downturn and the downturn in the property market, traditional electric water heaters, gas water heaters, and solar water heaters are not ideally developed. However, the air energy water heaters are thriving and have developed rapidly, which is close to that of 2010. 48%. In 2012, with the implementation of new energy-saving subsidies and trial prices, the development of new energy sources for solar energy and air energy ushered in a more hopeful dawn.

Integration of water heaters into a new favorite It is understood that, although solar water heaters and air energy water heaters have unique advantages of energy saving and environmental protection, but because of its own characteristics of the limitations, there are currently the limitations of the continuous supply of hot water: solar water heaters can rely on electricity in rainy days Auxiliary heating has low thermal efficiency and requires waiting; air-energy water heaters cannot be used or work inefficiently under colder climate conditions; and gas-fired water heaters have the advantage of being able to continuously supply hot water and can be used under any climatic conditions.

"Composite energy will be an inevitable trend to replace a single energy source," the industry sources said. He believes that the entire water heater industry will present three transitional trends: one is to provide water heater single product to provide solutions for domestic hot water systems; the other is to shift from the use of traditional energy sources to the development and utilization of new energy, and the third is to use single energy sources. Make use of the transition to a variety of composite energy sources.

"Any single form of energy is not the best product solution." The relevant experts have also made such a statement.

“Energy-saving and emission-reduction and products with less energy consumption will be the direction of future development.” Xu Dongsheng, secretary-general of the China Household Electrical Appliances Association, also believes that the hybrid energy water heater products will have very good prospects for development in the future.

Price, technology, and standard bottlenecks still need to be broken. All along, high price points are the bottleneck of the popularity of energy-saving water heaters. It is understood that the current price of air energy water heaters and integrated water heaters are mostly over 10,000 yuan, so the price is unbearable to ordinary consumers.

Hybrid water heaters haven't sold much since they were listed. Among them, the high price is indeed one of the most important factors. Currently, the integrated water heaters are mainly aimed at high-end residences such as villas, and their operating channels are relatively narrow.

Secondly, not only the purchase cost has increased significantly, but also the installation and maintenance aspects have become more complex. Currently, hybrid energy water heaters are still in the stage of product R&D and market incubation. In the specific market promotion process, companies will still encounter stability from product technology solutions. There are multiple resistances in sex and market spending habits.

In addition, the growth of emerging industries cannot be separated from the support of technical standards and the support of industrial policies. At present, the European Union is developing energy efficiency standards (ie, EUP standards) for energy comprehensive utilization products, including energy integrated water heaters, which will substantially increase the energy efficiency requirements of products and will be implemented in 2016; the draft for the national standard “multi-energy combination water heater” is also submitted. Has been reviewed by experts. It is expected that in the future, the expansion of China’s energy demand, the improvement of energy use efficiency, and the development of new energy products related standards and policies will be gradually introduced and implemented.

In short, under the trend of multi-energy complementarity and energy integration, water heater companies that focus on multi-energy development should accelerate technological innovation and R&D to further control production costs; at the same time, they should establish a unified installation and after-sales system; they must also step up publicity efforts. Under the guidance of the policy and the constraints of the standards, efforts were made to break through the bottleneck and achieve the promotion and popularization of this new energy-saving product.
