Come See the Latest European Stove Technology at the DC Green Festival!

For the first time, the Green Festival will showcase some of the most modern, efficient and clean wood heating appliances. Come see the types of wood stoves developed in Europe and are now available here in the U.S. One ties into hot water systems, one uses electronic sensors to optimize performance and one only needs to be loaded once or twice a day. Three different solutions to low carbon heating. Their innovative feature are now affordable and will allow you to use far less wood, while displacing up to 100% of fossil heating fuel.

The companies that make these stoves are also participating in the Next Generation Wood Stove Design Challenge, modeled after the Solar Decathlon. Twenty four teams from all over the world have registered to see who can build the cleanest, most efficient, affordable and innovative stove. The Design Challenge will culminate in a Wood Stove Decathlon on the Washington mall in November 2013.  For more info: http://www.forgreenheat.org/stovedesign.html

Here is more about the models in our booth: 

The Walltherm Konigsspitze sold by Caluwe is a super efficient hydronic heater/wood stove that emits around 30% of the overall heat into the room and around 70% of the heat goes into the home's water heating system.

Danish company Hwam's Autopilot IHS technology is newly available for many stove models. HWAM Autopilot IHS controls combustion inside the stove automatically and allows you to set the room temperature to the required level with the help of a remote control, which tells you when to refuel your stove as well.  

The Harmaja by Tulikivi is a masonry heater made from Finnish soapstone. It combines convection with radiant heat, capable of providing quick heat like typical wood stoves and releasing it slowly over time like masonry heaters. The Harmaja can heat a large area for up to 16 hours after the initial fire has gone out thanks to its 2000+ lbs of thermal mass. It also includes built-in grilling & baking rack.

Join the Alliance for Green Heat at Booth #1508 at the DC Green Festival, Sept. 29, 10am-7pm & Sept. 30, 11am-6pm. The festival will take place at the Washington DC Convention Center, 801 Mount Vernon Place, NW.

Admission to the Green Festival is free for bicyclists, youth 18 & under, members of Green America, Global Exchange, Sierra Club and volunteers. One day passes are $15 at the door or $11.85 online. Visit www.greenfestivals.org for more.
