This financing coincides with the first commercial deliveries of our Picea systems and will provide exceptional opportunities for HPS and its investors in the independent energy supply and residential energy storage market. Our unique position and leading technology were pivotal for this successful funding", commented Zeyad Abul-Ella, Managing Director of HPS Home Power Solutions GmbH.

This enables us to consistently process the large number of customer enquiries more efficiently than expected. We would like to thank all customers who have registered on our pre-reservation list for their interest and patience."

HPS develops and produces integrated systems for storing and using solar energy in single- and multi-family homes. HPS stands for reliability, independence and sustainability in decentralized energy supply. The first system from HPS, Picea, combines energy storage, heating support and indoor ventilation in one compact product. Thanks to its high-performance energy management system, Picea is able to meet the complete electrical energy needs of a single-family home. In addition, all waste heat produced is used to provide the house with heat and hot water, thus lowering the cost of heating. Compared to commercially available batteries, Picea has a hundred times more storage capacity with twice the output. Picea is energy efficient and provides power all year round, enabling complete energy self-sufficiency and independence from the grid. The energy produced by the photovoltaic installation on sunny days can either be used straightaway, or converted into hydrogen and stored. This energy is then made available at night, or during winter when there is limited sunshine. The HPS system's fuel cell converts the energy stored as hydrogen back into electrical energy and heat as needed. HPS is based in Berlin.
