Berlin, 6. September 2021
On 3 September 2021, Franziska Giffey, chair of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) in Berlin, and other policymakers paid a visit to technology company HPS Home Power Solutions AG (HPS) in Berlin-Adlershof. HPS is the provider of picea, the world’s first solar-hydrogen power plant for one- and two-family houses.
Can I fully supply my home with electricity generated from solar panels on my roof even in winter? Is it possible to generate and use hydrogen as a private individual? And how safe is green hydrogen in the home? These were just some of the questions discussed last Friday by Zeyad Abul-Ella, Managing Director and co-founder of HPS, and the Berlin delegation. On behalf of the HPS staff, technical expert Ramona Jenkins provided an insight into the daily work of HPS’s development department. Ms. Giffey was impressed by the potential applications of green hydrogen for long-term storage and the innovative capacity of HPS. She also stressed the importance of picea for climate protection in the private home sector.
