Storz Power, an energy storage provider for residential and commercial markets with an emphasis on smart automation technologies, has created a strategic alliance with energy management platform Lumin. The pairing enhances Storz Power’s AI+Smart Access by providing grid-responsive load shedding technology, automating off-grid backup operation.
“We want to better forecast energy provision based on available energy and upcoming energy production,” said Everett Brewer, Founder & CEO of Storz Power. “By layering our AI+ software on Lumin’s control platform, we give our homeowners the ability to fully control and reconfigure their back-up power systems and pull in any additional automations that may exist in the home (Control4, Lutron, Philips Smart Hue, etc.).” The integration streamlines homeowner control and makes the overall system ultimately more flexible, intuitive and grid-responsive.
The Storz Power AI+ Smart Access powered by Lumin offers several innovations to the market including; wireless detection of a power outage and real time responsive load control based on the battery state of charge. Both of these important developments are currently only available to the AI+ Smart Access platform.
“Making ordinary circuits smart unlocks the incredible potential of energy storage,” said Kevin O’Shea, Lumin Co-Founder and Chief Commercial Officer. “All homeowners with a regular circuit breaker panel can benefit from this solution and that’s why we are excited to partner with Storz Power and their innovative team. The advances incumbent in the AI+ Smart Access platform are critical to a home’s microgrid and to ESS adoption. This is just the beginning of something special and we are excited to be on board and to be a provider of an essential component to the platform.”
