The EcoSmart Home, which is being rolled out in the UK, is a total green energy solution, including Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) panels, storage and energy management system – all provided by one manufacturer.
The EcoSmart Home solution begins with generation delivered by the company’s PV building solutions that combines advanced PV technology with architectural aesthetics. Three solar panel types will be launched into the UK market for residential, garage and sunroom applications.
GoodWe’s energy storage solution (ESS) comprises a Lynx home battery that uses lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery cell technology and hybrid inverters to maximise energy output, maximising self-consumption and facilitating back-up power.
The battery system stores excess solar power generated from the BIPV to inject into the grid to avoid restricting solar production and when solar production is weak the battery will discharge to support load consumption around the home.
Charge and discharge times can be set enabling the battery to be charged at off-peak rates and, if the charge in the battery is low, the system can automatically switch to grid power seamlessly.
The final component in the EcoSmart Home solution is the GoodWe Smart Energy Management System (SEMS), which provides total control over the home energy system, enabling the monitoring of PV modules, the checking of energy consumption and the customisation of load working hours to maximise power output.
SEMS includes the GoodWe EV charger which can supply solar power to electric vehicles.
Eugene Lucarelli, strategic marketing manager at GoodWe UK, says the EcoSmart Home solution is green, money-saving and a boost to domestic energy security.
“The EcoSmart Home solution is a visionary concept for domestic electricity that not only protects homeowners from rising costs but is also a highly sustainable solution that can reduce a home’s carbon emissions and, crucially, at a time of increasing electricity grid failure, provide energy security even if the grid goes down.”
He continued: “For installers, the days of having to source and fit panels, inverters and control systems manufactured by different suppliers is over. EcoSmart Home is a suite of products and control systems that are designed to work seamlessly together to provide a total home energy solution.”
