On September 7, HOUZE Advanced Building Science, announced the launch of its ZEROCELL smart energy storage appliance.
According to HOUZE, the product will be offered through Euronics International stores starting in December 2016. In addition, ZEROCELL and HOUZE will start accepting online reservations at www.ZEROCELL.World and schedule installations beginning October 5, 2016.
Per HOUZE, the ZEROCELL serves as the nerve center for an open-source smart digital IoT ecosystem. Intended to help transform both existing and new homes into smart zero energy homes. The ZEROCELL stores and manages energy generated from either on-site-harvested energy or from off-site renewable energy transmitted by the electric grid.
The ZEROCELL’s stored energy can be used to power the home when electricity is more expensive and in high demand, store energy from rooftop solar during the day to power the home independent of the electric grid, shave peak energy load, provide backup power and energy security to the home and participate in demand response programs to support utilities.
David Goswick, CEO of HOUZE observed:
“Our mission is to democratize and accelerate a movement that enhances quality of life today, and protects the environment for future generations by providing smart, safe, secure energy that is affordable. The ZEROCELL makes solar and micro wind turbines make sense. Solar without the right energy storage solution isn’t really logical.”
John Olsen, Managing Director of Euronics International noted: “We are excited that Euronics will be the launch retail partner and Certified Installers of the ZEROCELL. The ZEROCELL provides a whole new platform of smart digital energy.”
The ZEROCELL is designed around a nanobattery system. Per HOUZE, the nanobattery offers a life span of 12-18 years and up to 6,000 charges which complies with international standards and performs in extreme temperatures (-40F – 150F).
