The start-up

HPS develops and produces systems for storing and using solar energy in single- and two-family homes. HPS stands for safety, independence and sustainability in decentralized energy supply. The first system from HPS, Picea, combines energy storage, heating and indoor ventilation in one compact system. Thanks to its high-performance energy management system, Picea is able to meet the complete electrical energy needs of a family home. HPS is based in Berlin.

The need

Increasing energy distribution costs and CO2 emissions put pressure on residential customers who need easy solutions to ”go green”, and even completely autarkic.

The solution

HPS has developed a fully integrated system providing for all electricity and heat demand. Use of hydrogen storage and fuel cells allow for seasonal storage and a constant heat supply, with components such as battery, electrolyser and fuel cell all working together efficiently. Predictive energy management creates a sustainable, electrically self-sufficient and customisable house energy system.

The value proposition

  • CO2-free and cheaper energy through self-generation: ROI of 7 years.
  • Possibility to secure 100% energy needs starting from own PV system, and even go fully off-grid.
  • Customer satisfaction in relying on self-generated green energy.
