HPS Home Power Solutions to present the latest developments on the picea hydrogen-based home storage system

  • Greentech Festival, 16-18 June, Berlin
  • Responsible Innovation Day, 23 June, online conference
  • PV Magazine webinar, 24 June

Berlin, 15 June 2021 - HPS Home Power Solutions GmbH (HPS), provider of picea, the world's first home solar-hydrogen power plant for grid-independent and carbon-free electricity supply, today announced its participation in several information events.

"A lot has happened at HPS since the beginning of the year," said Zeyad Abul-Ella, Managing Director and founder of HPS Home Power Solutions GmbH. "Together with Zollner Elektronik AG, based in Bavaria, we launched production of our picea home storage system. Around 80 systems have been sold since then, with half of them already installed at our customers' sites. HPS also welcomed EIT InnoEnergy, one of the most important European climate tech investors, as a shareholder. Berlin-based Energieinsel collaborates with us in marketing picea while Wohnwerke, a developer and planner from Southern Germany, is our partner for equipping homes with the picea system. The hydrogen strategies of the German federal government and the European Union provide an important framework for independent and carbon-free energy supply, including in the home sector. I am therefore pleased to be available both online and in person to share the latest developments at HPS and to answer questions from prospective and existing customers and business partners at various events over the next ten days."

After serving as an initiative partner to PV Magazine's online event last year, in his current webinar Zeyad Abul-Ella will show in detail how the picea home storage system works together with a heat pump, generating not just electricity but utilizing waste heat as well. Using a practical example, he will explain what level of self-sufficiency is possible and how power supply becomes more secure as grids become less stable. The founder of HPS will also dispel the rumors and myths about hydrogen storage and use and illustrate the safety of picea. For more information about the webinar go to:

About picea

picea is the world's first hydrogen-based electricity storage system for one and two-family houses. The energy surpluses achieved on sunny days from a photovoltaic system are stored as green hydrogen to make electricity and heat available in the dark season. picea provides year-round, carbon-free full power supply and also reduces heating costs. One picea system avoids approx. 3 tons of carbon dioxide per year, binding as much carbon dioxide as 130 mature spruce trees. HPS started delivering the first picea systems in 2019. With contract manufacturing having started in 2020, larger quantities are being produced and become available for delivery in 2021. picea has won several prestigious awards, most recently the Handelsblatt Energy Award 2021.
