HPS Home Power Solutions launches production of the picea hydrogen power storage system at Zollner Elektronik
- Bavaria's minister of economic affairs, Hubert Aiwanger, and Franz Löffler, president of the district council of Oberpfalz and district administrator of Cham, give the official go-ahead on site
- picea, the world's first solar-hydrogen power plant for private households delivers complete energy self-sufficiency and carbon-free electricity
- Zollner plans scalable production capacities
- One HPS storage system is in use at the Zollner plant in Altenmarkt
Berlin and Altenmarkt, 9 December 2020: Zero emissions thanks to hydrogen: Bavarian minister of economic affairs, Hubert Aiwanger, and Franz Löffler, president of the district council of Oberpfalz and district administrator of Cham, paid a visit to the Zollner Elektronik AG plant in Altenmarkt near Cham to inspect the picea hydrogen-based energy storage system developed by Berlin-based HPS Home Power Solutions. Zollner already started the production a couple of weeks ago and uses one of these systems to support the power supply of its plant with a constant, year-round supply of electricity from solar energy.
Economics minister Aiwanger said: "To drive the energy transition, we need storage systems for storing surplus renewable energy. By using this for hydrogen production by electrolysis, a flexible energy carrier can be obtained. Thus, as shown here, a fuel cell powered by hydrogen can generate electricity again. Now it is time to use the Bavarian technological advantage to help this innovation make a rapid breakthrough on the market."
