About HPS Home Power Solutions AG:

HPS develops and produces integrated systems for the storage and use of solar energy for single and two-family houses. HPS stands for security, independence and sustainability in decentralized power supply. The first HPS system picea is energy storage, heating support and residential ventilation in one compact product. Based on its own powerful energy management system, picea completely covers the electrical energy requirements of a single-family home. In addition, the waste heat generated is supplied to the house as heating energy, thus reducing heating costs. Compared to commercially available batteries, picea offers a hundred times more storage capacity with twice as much power. picea is energy efficient and provides energy all year round. This makes picea the first real option for complete independence from the grid. The energy produced by a photovoltaic system on sunny days can either be used immediately or converted into hydrogen and stored. This energy can then be retrieved during the winter period when there is little sunshine. picea’s fuel cell converts the energy stored in hydrogen back into electrical energy and heat when needed. HPS has its headquarters in Berlin. For more information, please visit: http://www.homepowersolutions.de/en
