Buy energy when it's cheap and green

Use it when you need it

Low electricity prices occur when there is low demand, which usually coincide with night-time and the afternoon. Apart from being cheaper, off-peak electricity is usually greener as renewables take the biggest share.

Boxergy systems use such green off-peak electricity to generate heat with a high level of efficiency, storing it in heat batteries for later use. Similarly, the electrical batteries are charged with cheap green power or from your solar PV. The heat and electricity stored in the systems are now ready to be used when needed.

Getting even cheaper, greener and smarter with time

This sounds simple, but the growth of renewables is making such pattern more volatile, with periods of very cheap energy (sometimes even FREE) and very expensive peaks when dispatchable and costly fossil fuel generation is required to fill the gap.

Boxergy project HERO is about taking advantage of such increased volatility, working along with modern smart tariffs such as Octopus Agile. The system in development includes a highly advanced energy management controller that autonomously buys and stores energy during the cheapest times of the day with no need of manual intervention. The HERO system will then be ready to deliver heat and electricity to meet our customers’ needs even Cheaper, Greener and Smarter.

Our mission is your comfort

You can use your current smart thermostat to tell the system when you want your heating to come on and it provides instant hot water on demand. HERO will learn your routine to provide you with the lowest cost energy when you need it.
