Vénissieux, June 20, 2022

BOOSTHEAT SA, a French industrial player in energy efficiency, exhibits its thermal compression technology in Wuppertal as part of the Solar Decathlon Europe (SDE) 2021/2022 which aims to promote energy transition in neighborhoods and thus contribute to the emergence of cities that are pleasant to live in and adapted to the challenges of tomorrow . it’s about the first phase of the partnership of BOOSTHEAT SA, the University of Wuppertal and WSW Energie & Wasser AG, an energy supplier of the city of Wuppertal around the project “Living Lab.NRW”[1].

Eighteen teams of academics from eleven different countries qualified for the 2021/2022 edition of the SDE and presented technically, architecturally and socially appropriate solutions to help European cities evolve.

The teams have built their demonstration houses and the final of the SOLAR DECATHLON EUROPE, which currently takes place until June 26, 2022, allows the public to discover its achievements on the site of the event, on Nordbahnstrasse, in Wuppertal.

Eight of these houses will be kept on site after the competition and will be incorporated into the follow-up project “LivingLab. N.R.W.’ the central research and training institute of North Rhine-Westphalia for carbon-neutral living and sustainable urban planning.

Most will be connected to a heating network, which will be the only source of heating power.

At the forefront of renewable energy innovation, BOOSTHEAT’s gas-fired heat pump will generate heat from ambient air using its patented thermal compression system, designed and manufactured by BOOSTHEAT. This central heating unit will feed up to 20 kW into the local heat network, which will be enough to heat the eight perfectly insulated demonstration houses.

After this first phase of presenting the technology to the public, the second phase will begin this fall as soon as the heat pump is installed near the houses and all the solutions are activated. The BOOSTHEAT heat pump will be powered by propane and coupled with renewable heat from the ambient air.

The third phase provides the use of hydrogen as the main fuel from 2023. In this context, BOOSTHEAT has joined forces with Promeos, designer and manufacturer of innovative burners, which, after having studied and confirmed the technical feasibility, is currently developing a specific burner adapted to BOOSTHEAT technology.


Founded in 2011, BOOSTHEAT is a player in the energy efficiency sector. The Company’s mission is to accelerate the energy transition through the integration of its technology in highly energy-consuming applications. BOOSTHEAT has designed and developed a thermal compressor protected by 7 families of patents which significantly reduce energy consumption to promote reasonable and relevant use of resources.

BOOSTHEAT’s head office, research center and manufacturing plant are located in Vénissieux, near Lyon (an industrial area historically specialized in HVAC*). The company is certified Innovative Company (BpiFrance) and French Fab. BOOSTHEAT is listed on Euronext Growth in Paris (ISIN: FR0011814938). * Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning
