The future of energy – 100 years and counting
Even today we maintain the standards of founder Dr. Theodor Stiebel: insisting on the development and production of innovative products with the highest level of quality. When Dr. Theodor Stiebel invented and produced the ring immersion heater in his backyard workshop in Berlin in 1924, he opened the first chapter of STIEBEL ELTRON's successful company history. In 2024 we will turn 100, so join us in looking forward to our anniversary year.
A passion for thought leadership
The beginning of a success story: The "ELTRON" company is founded on 5 May 1924 by Dr Theodor Stiebel in Berlin. In his backyard workshop in Berlin, he invents and produces the immersion heater, thus opening the first chapter of STIEBEL ELTRON's successful company history. This was just the beginning: in the 1970s, STIEBEL ELTRON started producing heat pumps and solar collectors, establishing itself as a pioneer in the field of renewable energies.
Cutting edge projects that serve as role models
As an innovation-driven family business, STIEBEL ELTRON follows a clear ethos in the production and development of products - for environmentally friendly, efficient and convenient domestic technology. With over 6,000 employees worldwide, we consistently rely on our own expertise from product development to production. The result is efficient and innovative solutions for hot water, heating, ventilation and cooling. With an extensive product range, STIEBEL ELTRON always offers the right solution to prepare your home today for the demands of the future. There is a lot at stake: your home, cosy warmth, hot water and our environment. As a company, we are happy to invest all our energy and passion in this for you.

Because comfort and sustainability belong together
Your own home should be a place of warmth and cosiness. STIEBEL ELTRON has been ensuring that you feel comfortable at home with intelligent and advanced building technology since 1924. Our products have been ahead of their time in a wide variety of categories and have set fundamental standards. From the very beginning, we have focussed on electrical energy that can be generated from renewable sources in an environmentally friendly way. In this way, we paved the way for sustainable living at an early stage.
Clear focus on green technologies
For us, progress is not an end in itself, but an opportunity for a better quality of life. That's why we've been developing cutting-edge, state-of-the-art solutions since 1924.
As a company, we set the course for the future early on and have been focussing on green technologies instead of oil and gas for almost 50 years. Because renewable energy makes our lives electric and clean. As a family business, we have been pursuing a clear strategy since our foundation in 1924. It is part of our self-image to always think a little further ahead in order to offer you the solutions for tomorrow today.
Pioneer in climate protection
Sustainability is part of our identity. This applies not only to our products but also to our locations and manufacturing processes: STIEBEL ELTRON aims to become completely climate-neutral by 2040.
As a first step, all building and hall heating systems will be completely converted to renewable energy sources by 2030. In the vehicle fleet, we are continuously increasing the proportion of vehicles with electric drives and will no longer allow any conventionally powered vehicles from 2030. In addition, the CO2 footprint of products manufactured in Germany, including the upstream chain balance, is being determined. In this way, we are also creating reliable CO2 transparency for our manufacturing processes.
