Say hi to Tepeo's Zero Emission Boiler!

It has been a while since we posted any news! You may have wondered what on earth we’ve been up to or if we’d given up…

Well for the last 6 months the team here at Tepeo have been flat out innovating, designing, iterating, problem solving and modelling. I won’t lie - there have been lots of ups and downs and countless challenges along the way. Finally, after months of hard grind and many coffees, in early June we finally cracked it! The result is something we’re immensely proud of and excited to share with you all. This version stores 40kWh of usable heat and can output 20kW of heat into a central heating and/or hot water system.

This new prototype is vastly different from what came before and has some really cool new innovations. Sadly we can’t share too much about how it works at this stage so instead we thought we’d show you how it might look in your kitchen in a couple of years time…

The keen observers amongst you might notice the image on the wall. We have this hanging in our office. It’s the global average temperatures over a 1.5 degree range going back to 1850. If ever inspiration was needed to urgently address climate change, this is ours. What’s yours?

We also realised that most people will have no idea what a “Heat Battery” is! So we’ve started calling it a “Zero Emission Boiler” - which is what it is! It’s your new boiler. It puts out zero emissions and its flexibility supports the transition to 100% renewable generation. One day it will join your “Zero Emission Vehicle” as part of your Zero Carbon Home. That day can’t come soon enough.

We’ve just received the final components and are busy assembling it - so check back at the end of the week and you won’t just see a render of the future - you’ll see the future!
