LG Debuts Home 8 Residential Energy Storage System

Residential energy storage systems have been a growing opportunity for CE pros, and another big name is providing an attractive option in the category. LG Electronics has introduced the Home 8 residential energy storage system (ESS), a new all-in-one solution that the company says will enable U.S. homeowners to manage energy, provide backup power and reduce dependence on the electric grid.The LG Home 8 ESS was unveiled at the 2022 RE+ (formerly SPI) trade show in Anaheim, Calif., this week, where LG Electronics USA also is demonstrating a LG commercial ESS version for the U.S. market.

CE Pro tabbed the smart energy storage and management category as one of the five top tech opportunities for custom integrators in 2022, based in part because of some bigger names entering the fray.

LG’s Home 8 energy storage system combines an advanced inverter and battery in a single unit that is floor standing, and wall supported to provide an organized, streamlined installation, according to the company. Its 7.5kW inverter/charger provides a total capacity of 14.4kWh of usable on-demand energy and is stackable up to four units, which in combination allows up to 57.6kWh of usable energy.

Customers who do not have a solar PV system and have a Time of Use plan can still use Home 8, LG says. The ESS can be used independently from the grid and can charge during the daytime when electricity prices are lower. Home 8 can then be utilized during peak consumption hours when prices increase. In preparation for potential natural disasters and power outages, Home 8 can store energy in advance for later use.An all-in-one energy storage system manufactured by a global leader in smart home technology
Dependable on-demand energy that assists homeowners in achieving energy independence

A business has raised almost £1m to develop a washing machine filter which could help tackle harmful levels of microplastic pollution in the world’s oceans.

The Cleaner Seas Group (CSG) said it had designed a self-generated device, which can be fitted or built into every type of washing machine, and can stop up to 700,000 microfibres being released into the environment with every wash cycleBude-based firm said an estimated 1.4 million trillion plastic microfibers have made their way into global seas, with research increasingly showing not only an impact on marine life but also on humans, as plastic infiltrates our food systems.

CSG said its latest investment, raised from a mix of business angels, institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals, had exceeded its initial target of £700,000.

Off the back of it, the company has now launched a crowdfunding campaign seeking to raise a further £460,000, while it has also announced a new senior hire as it moves to its next period of growth.
