HPS Home Power Solutions AG and Zollner Elektronik AG sign cooperation agreement
HPS Home Power Solutions AG (HPS), the Berlin-based energy solutions provider for single-family homes, which fulfils the need for energy independence, today announced the signing of an agreement with Zollner Elektronik AG which will produce HPS’ picea-devices in the future. Zollner Elektronik AG, based in Zandt, Bavaria, is to produce picea-devices annually in the four-digit range in the coming years.
“The supply of energy is the central starting point in order to reduce CO2. Because it provides a completely CO2-neutral power supply in detached and semi-detached houses, picea has the potential to be a disruptive innovation. With its all-in-one unit, the HPS product provides unique additional value to the end user, which helped to convinced us at Zollner”,
commented Johann Weber, CEO of Zollner Elektronik AG.
“We are proud of supporting HPS in the production with our expertise and hence becoming part of the 100% CO2-free energy supply picea-vision.”

About HPS Home Power Solutions
HPS develops and produces integrated systems for storing and using solar energy in single- and multi-family homes. HPS stands for reliability, independence and sustainability in decentralized energy supply. The first system from HPS, picea, combines energy storage, heating support and indoor ventilation in one compact product. Thanks to its high-performance energy management system, picea is able to meet the complete electrical energy needs of a single-family home. In addition, all waste heat produced is used to provide the house with heat and hot water, thus lowering the cost of heating. Compared to commercially available batteries, picea has a hundred times more storage capacity with twice the output. picea is energy efficient and provides power all year round, enabling complete energy selfsufficiency and independence from the grid. The energy produced by the photovoltaic installation on sunny days can either be used straightaway or converted into hydrogen and stored. This energy is then made available at night, or during winter when there is limited sunshine. The HPS system’s fuel cell converts the energy stored as hydrogen back into electrical energy and heat as needed. HPS is based in Berlin.
