The IPCC (organization mandated by the UN) has highlighted the relationship between greenhouse gas emissions and natural disasters (floods, tsunamis, global warming …). The reduction of CO2 emissions related to consumption of energy is therefore one of the main armaments in the fight against climate change. The recent Fukushima nuclear disaster has refocused the public on risks related to generation of nuclear energy. There is therefore a global interest in advancing clean energy generation, which, due to expected overall positive impact is also nicknamed positive energy. As a consequence in Europe, the member states have set a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the share of renewable energy in total energy consumption by 2020.
In addition to the proven economic aspect, being equipped with a solar installation combine with batteries to produce its own electricity (self-consumption – self-production), is a sustainable investment contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions and the development of a new and inevitable energy model.
Positive energy homes are meant to contribute to the wellbeing of the planet.
Positive energy homes and territories are growing and are a big step towards contributing to durable development of the planet. Solar energy is the most efficient source of renewable energy, it is free, unlimited and it is the easiest to access for property owners willing to produce electricity by themselves. The concept of a positive energy self-sufficient house dictates that the house must be able to cover the full energy demand by prioritizing free and renewable energies over the fossil fuels. The energy generated by the positive energy home’s solar system can be used for self-consumption or sold to an electricity distributor, or both. To reduce the dependence on harmful fossil fuels, IMEON ENERGY has developed a revolutionary hybrid inverter, IMEON, to contribute to the wellbeing of the planet by giving priority to renewable energies to produce its electricity in the positive energy home.
