Renewable technologies like solar and wind power provide some of our best options for a zero carbon future, but can’t provide a constant 24 hour supply of energy. The eBox is a new form of intelligent energy system that will solve this issue, providing power management and storage for individual households.
Small and cheap enough to be installed in individual homes, the eBox will be able to store and distribute power from both the grid and renewable sources, making it possible for individuals to store the electricity they generate themselves and use it at a time that’s convenient for them.
The eBox combines several nano-based technologies to create an intelligent storage system that can manage the way you store and use energy to make the most of low price, off-peak power and locally generated power from turbines and solar cells. By incorporating nanotechnology it makes all this possible at a size and price that is truly accessible for individual households.
