Smart outdoor A single DC infrastructure connected with street lighting, Sola Road Biking paths with integrated solar panels, sound barriers with solar panels, battery storage for grid support, and security components, a security monitoring service provided by Luminext.

Smart cities Sensor integration with street lights on our DC system, which can monitor, for example, the level of fullness in the waste glass container; CO2 sensors in the street lighting or detection of people to automatically change the lighting level. The possibilities are endless.

Homes Heat pumps, ventilation, lighting, USB sockets C, and solar panels, all connected to a DC smart grid in homes, which can eventually be connected to a DC grid in the streets.

Offices Heat pumps, ventilation, lighting USB sockets C, solar panels, all connected to a DC smart grid in offices, where we can realize smaller connections with congestion management.

Horticulture DC grow lights where the CHP is also linked to the DC grid we developed, where the connected gas engines may have a variable speed.

Solar parks fully on a local DC grid and connected to the DC grid of net operators.

Network operators The future DC Grid Station for which we have developed the AC/DC converter, which we connect directly with our medium-voltage transformer.
