Decarbonisation of the heating system at Berghaus Nagens

Oil heating replaced by innovative air/water heat pump

The motto is: “The only oil that should heat is chilli oil”. As part of WAG’s goal of replacing all oil heating systems within the company with efficient and renewable systems by 2025 at the latest, an important step has now been taken: The large oil heating system in Nagens was successfully replaced with a modern air/water heat pump in October 2023.

 

Heat pumps are not only a renewable solution, they are also unbeatably efficient, with energy savings of 50% to 80% depending on the location and altitude. The old oil heating system consumed over 60,000 litres of heating oil every year, which corresponds to an energy consumption of around 600,000 kWh per year. Nagens is situated at over 2000 metres above sea level and energy savings of at least 57% are expected. This means that future demand will only be around 270,000 kWh. This demand can be covered by renewable electricity.

 

The replacement of the oil heating system is an important step towards an efficient, renewable and fossil oil-free energy supply for WAG.
