Energy storage, heating support and ventilation unit, all-in-one.
HPS has developed a system in which components such as battery, electrolyzer and fuel cell all work together efficiently. Predictive energy management creates a sustainable, electrically self-sufficient and customizable house energy system.
In addition, the waste heat generated during the operation of Picea is provided to the house as heating or hot water, thus further reducing your energy bill.
Picea has standardized interfaces and is easy to install and easy to maintain.
The system operation is simple and automated. This allows you to manage the energy generated by your photovoltaic solar system according to your needs.
The HPS software shows how you can help protect the environment and allows you to control your energy requirements.
In the energy center, all components are tightly integrated to provide maximum performance within limited space. Everything from a single source: batteries, power electronics, ventilation equipment, electrolyzer, fuel cell or the HPS energy manager. All components are integrated in a closed system – compact with a small footprint.
The hydrogen storage system is your personal seasonal storage which stores the energy produced in the summer for use during the winter months. The hydrogen storage is absolutely safe and can be installed both inside and outside. We will be happy to advise you to find the ideal storage place.
Picea contains - compact and complete - all components required for safe and efficient storage and use of electricity. The price of Picea is usually between 60,000 and 90,000 euros depending on the individual dimensioning - this price includes: An electrolyser for the production of hydrogen from solar power, a fuel cell for the supply of electricity in winter, 25 kWh usable battery capacity for short-term storage, at least 300 kWh long-term storage, solar inverter for the direct connection of a PV system, intelligent energy management and app for tablet, a ventilation unit incl. heat exchanger and thus the possibility for controlled ventilation of living space, and a 500 l hot water tank. The installation of a Picea system is currently subsidized in Germany by the KfW with 12.450 Euro! If necessary, further regional subsidy programmes can be used - we will be happy to check further subsidy possibilities and take care of the application for you.
Picea offers a very compact concept and is the first energy system of its kind worldwide. In contrast to other commercially available systems with less performance, the HPS solution does not require large space or conversions within the building. All interfaces between our system and your house are standardized. Electrical power independence requires appropriate boundary conditions on site.
In this factsheet, you will find all the important technical data, a product description and a functional overview.
This flyer provides an overview about utilizing Picea and includes a graphic that explains its functionality.
In this presentation you will find a short summary about the year-round electricity storage Picea and about HPS.
