Ceramics heating panels that save energy using microwaves technology

Pitch

In Spain, 1 out of 5 households heats their home with electrical heaters.

a-These households use this type of heating because they may not live in the coldest parts of Spain or they don´t need heating all year round.

b-However, electrical heating is one of the most inefficient ways of heating.

c-Every year, 20 million tons of CO2 is emitted to produce the electricity for these heaters.

We have developed a product is the SaveHeat Panel, and we intend on selling these panels to households at 225€/panel.

The tile is heated using the same technology every household has in its home: microwaves.

-The microwaves are produced in a heating cell, which you can see in the top right.

-Then, using wiring, it is distributed through the whole tile.

-With this, we are able to heat the whole tile in 60 seconds to a temperature which is suitable for heating.
