Genesys 8K has only two components
Empower Micro Systems has launched a modular smart home energy platform designed specifically for residential solar, energy storage, and unified solar and energy storage systems using standard AC wiring.

The Genesys 8K modular technology platform provides 98% efficiency, instrumentation-grade power quality (1% THD), and a 100% solid state design for reliability. Empower has licensed patented technology and turn key product designs to inverter, photovoltaic module, and lithium-ion battery module manufacturers around the world looking to gain traction in the rapidly converging residential smart energy sector.

The design has only two components, or stock keeping units (SKUs), for residential installations: the 8K PowerBridge, a module-level Fractal Inverter; and the 8K PowerHub, a Smart Energy Combiner. This is a quarter of other systems and lowers distributor inventory and logistics costs with faster installation.

“The next era of smart home energy convergence is here and it’s ready for primetime,” said Mika Nuotio, CEO of Santa Clara-based Empower Micro Systems. “Our reputation for state-of-the-art power electronics technology is well reflected in our Genesys 8K modular smart home energy platform. Working with major global manufacturing customers, we are accelerating smart energy deployment and truly democratizing energy.”
