NextEnergy Inc. to distribute KWT heat pumps in North America
Viessmann Manufacturing Company Inc. is proud to announce an agreement with geothermal firm NextEnergy Inc. to secure North American sales support, installation and service for its high temperature output KWT heat pumps.
“The team at NextEnergy brings an impressive array of knowledge, expertise and experience to the table,” says Harald Prell, President, Viessmann North America. “With a diverse in-house team of industry experts and reliable partner focus, NextEnergy is uniquely qualified to create new opportunities for the KWT high temperature ground source heat pump in North America.”
“NextEnergy is excited to build a U.S. and Canadian market for high quality, efficient Viessmann KWT heat pumps, and the completion of this agreement is an important step in expanding NextEnergy’s commercial geothermal business,” says Randal Palach, President & CEO, NextEnergy Inc. “Combining Viessmann KWT high performing geothermal heat pumps with NextEnergy’s design and system integration will provide the ultimate heating and cooling solution for engineering consultants and building owners.”
Designed with high temperature output capacities of 90 to 250 kW, KWT heat pumps are ideal for new installations or retrofits in larger residential complexes and commercial operations. They are typically used to recover natural heat – such as solar energy stored in the ground or in groundwater – which is used for efficient domestic hot water and space heating. These natural heating solutions only require electricity to drive the pumps, offering a cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels.

The company has completed more than 250,000 installations across North America since 1998 and offers a full range of services including commercial and residential system design and installation, consulting, project management and sales and marketing.
