STIEBEL ELTRON expands global operations to drive renewable heating technologies across Irish market

STIEBEL ELTRON has expanded its global operations in a bid to deliver renewable heating technologies and drive greener homes across Ireland.

The leading supplier of sustainable heating products opened its new regional headquarters in Dublin this month which will serve both countries. 

With global headquarters based in Germany and 26 existing sales operations around the world, the Dublin location will see STIEBEL ELTRON strengthen its reach with the delivery of a range of heat pumps, electric hot water, space heating and ventilation products across Ireland. 

As The Government of Ireland looks to develop Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEBs) by 2025 as part of its climate action plan, STIEBEL ELTRON will look to drive sustainable energy solutions across the country to support this.

Located at Blanchardstown, the Dublin office holds five employees from the first day who will be on hand to support customers with their expertise in implementing renewable energy technology in homes across the country.

Opening with a view to supporting every aspect of the Irish market’s supply chain, the company will provide support and guidance for all customers, whether they are end consumers, installers, developers, consultants, or architects.

The Ireland headquarters opens with a new showroom, fitted out with the latest STIEBEL ELTRON sustainable heating products, innovations, and technologies. 

Additionally, the headquarters features a training centre which will see experienced and prospective renewable energy technicians supported from day one, offering them comprehensive training to develop a raft of qualified, experienced engineers who will serve the area.

While the government has set out plans to reduce carbon emissions across residential households, Ireland is set to fall short of targets with the Environmental Protection Agency (The EPA) anticipating a reduction of 29 percent in Greenhouse Gas by 2030 compared to a target of 51 percent.  

The EPA estimates that residential buildings are the only sector on track to meet current targets, with emissions expected to decrease by 36 percent to 47 percent by 2030, and STIEBEL ELTRON’s entry into the market will help galvanise this. 

Mark McManus, STIEBEL ELTRON IRELAND Managing Director, said: “The Irish markets hold huge opportunity for renewable energy technologies, so developing an office which will support this sector was a no brainer. 

“At STIEBEL ELTRON we have a track record in creating and supplying tried and tested innovative renewable energy products to a global market, as well as being a leader in sharing our expertise to drive these green solutions forward.

“We’re excited by the prospect of working with Irish consumers to achieve the clear goals outlined by the government in building regulations which will create a more sustainable future across Ireland.”

Across the globe, the company has been a driving force behind the adoption of renewable heating solutions, particularly with meeting demand for greener buildings and the development of qualified technicians to develop them. 

The company’s move into the Irish market forms part of its commitment to growing every aspect of the business, from developing its training facilities and workforce further, to investing in new renewable energy technologies and products. 

Founded in 1924, STIEBEL ELTRON is a market leading supplier of technology for building services and green technology, with a particular focus on central heating products such as heat pumps.
