CUBOS as a complete solution - use renewable energies to generate your own electricity, store it and supply your household. Use your energy only when it is really needed.
Consumers swarm everywhere
Whether at home or on the road - you want to be able to rely on the control of your home appliances. The networking of your IoT (Internet of Things) devices offers new opportunities to add comfort, quality of life and security to a dynamic everyday life.
When it comes to accurate garden care, for example, CUBOS regulates watering timing, and ensures a well-kept lawn through individual networking strategies. Whether it’s a vegetable patch, fruit tree or pool maintenance, CUBOS Smart Home supports your green thumb.
Save energy during the day with CUBOS
No two days are the same, but actually, we all follow our routines. Especially throughout the day, we need the most energy. But not in every room and on every occasion. With clever energy management, you take your energy usage routines into account.
You make coffee in a warm kitchen, don’t freeze when you shower and your children play without getting frostbite.
Since you are on the road at midday, the energy is reduced to the bare minimum. Meanwhile, the photovoltaic system feeds the energy storage.
You come home and a pleasant warmth greets you. The photovoltaic system now supplies the entire house.
All rooms are pleasantly heated. The electric vehicle is charging and uses the stored energy of the day for this purpose.
The optimal sleeping temperature is between 16 - 19 °C. The energy store is not needed overnight.
Charging point infrastructure
Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly suitable for everyday use. So, it is obvious that your property should also follow this trend. So far, the infrastructure of charging stations is still under criticism. But that should change in the coming years. More and more private households and businesses are upgrading. Here are some tips on what you should look out for when setting up a charging station infrastructure:
There are various ways to charge your vehicle. Here we explain the three most common ones.
The household socket
The charging process takes the longest here, as the household socket only has a power of 1.8 to 2.3 kW. It should only be used in an emergency, as the power line is heavily loaded and thus becomes warm.
The charging station
Here it is important to note that there are charging stations with different outputs (from 3.7 kW to 22 kW). The higher the power, the faster the charging process is completed.
The ultra-fast charging station
To save time, ultra-fast charging stations are the right choice. They enable the fastest charging process with a power of up to 350 kW. You can find such facilities along motorways, for example.
The private charging station (wallbox)
A home solution should be flexible and convenient. We therefore recommend that you install your own charging station. To connect to a charging station, you need a Mode 3 charging cable (charging capacities of up to 43 kW are possible).
Use renewable energies
Trendsetters rely on the combination of electric mobility and photovoltaic systems in conjunction with an energy storage system. Produce your own electricity, store it, and use it when you need it. For example, you can charge your electric vehicle overnight without any problems.
Buying charging stations, installing them and charging vehicles – this only works well on a small scale. As soon as several vehicles are to be charged at one location, well thought-out planning is urgently required.
- How many charging stations are needed?
- How quickly do the vehicles need to be charged?
- What type of charging station should be used?
- How many vehicles need to be charged at the same time?
CUBOS will find a reliable, sustainable and cost-effective solution for you, whether for cars, commercial vehicles or a public car park.
The performance of a photovoltaic system can be seriously reduced by inadequate planning and unprofessional installation. Contact us as a specialist company to inform you about important factors.
Our services and everything from a single source:
- Advice on photovoltaics (measurements and application)
- Planning and installation
With a photovoltaic system, you gain independence in terms of energy suppliers and electricity prices. Here is a comparison of the current feed-in revenue to a purchased kWh from an energy supplier:
- Feed-in revenue: approx. 10-12 cents/kWh
- When buying a kWh: approx. 27-29 cents/kWh
We will be happy to advise you on optimising your energy management.
Smart energy storage
Integrated energy storage in grid-connected systems are becoming increasingly interesting, especially in the smart home sector. In energy storage systems, surplus energy can be stored in various forms.
Conversion losses are inevitable and to be expected when converting the energy into electricity. This means that in situations where the electricity generated from renewable sources can be directly transmitted and immediately consumed, this is the most energy-efficient option.
When recommending energy storage systems, CUBOS pays particular attention to the following aspects and requirements:
CUBOS understands this requirement to mean high energy and power density, low self-discharge and low auxiliary power consumption. The system efficiency must also be particularly high.
A high level of operational safety and a low potential for damage must be guaranteed.
The service life refers not only to the calendar time, but also to the number of storage and retrieval cycles of the energy storage device.
Environmental compatibility plays a role not only in direct use, but also in production and subsequent disposal.
The combination of photovoltaics with energy storage and steadily rising electricity prices makes payback periods of 5 to 10 years feasible.
