Electricity demand fluctuates throughout the day, with morning and evening peaks. To facilitate peak demands, utilities need to run more generating stations, significantly increasing operating costs and CO2 emissions.
Renewable energy such as solar and wind are unpredictable and often generated when less is needed.
Reduces the ammount utility companies spend meeting the peak demand
Incentive programs, rebates, or leasing would encourage homeowners to install the technology
The thermal energy is stored in affordable and environmentally friendly materials
The Stash Energy Storage system works with conventional heat pumps to thermally store energy, which avoids purchasing expensive power during peak times. Smart grid technology can leverage this stored energy to reduce peak electricity consumption and use more electricity from renewable sources.
