Solar Energy Hub

The Solar Energy Hub is a weatherproof columnar unit, its narrow section keeps wind loading to a minimum and the main structure houses the power pack with internal mounts to locate electronics, sensing and imaging gadgets which can be deployed and commissioned within minutes. The vertical orientation maximises winter and low sun conditions to ensure full uninterrupted operation all year round.

The Solar Energy Hub can house and power Internet of Things and Smart City gadgets with minimum disruption to existing infrastructure, thus overcoming mains power access restrictions that may be enforced by local authorities.

The Solar Energy Hub system houses the power pack and system electronics in one weatherproof case, and does not require any additional power input. The standard range is typically up to 35W power output but is flexible to meet additional needs.

The Solar Energy Hub is an autonomous power supply which does not require mains power connection. A self-contained power system, the Solar Energy Hub will provide the next generation of Smart City and Internet of Things gadgets with standalone power. A tamper-proof unit houses a modular power pack which can be tailored to meet device specifications, typically up to 35 watts.
High efficiency solar cells power the Solar Energy Hub, with energy stored in the on-board battery packs. The standalone power supply does not require any additional main’s power, reducing the complexity of installation and eliminating the restrictions which may be enforced by local authorities when connecting to main’s power infrastructure. There are many situations when main’s power is not available such as flood sensors in remote locations, the Solar Energy Hub offers a neat power solution.
Expensive electrical gadgets such as sophisticated sensing devices need to be protected when out in the field. The novel Smart Energy Hub features internal mounts to house this sensitive equipment. The Hub’s durable design and added security measures ensures that the product is tamper proof, therefore protecting any electronic devices housed inside. The sleek, discrete design blends in with existing Street Furniture, reducing the risk of vandalism and theft of a traditional larger scale solar panel.
The Solar Energy Hub has been designed to be a sympathetic addition to existing street furniture, with its sleek, elegant design the product is available in a range of finishes and colours. The Solar Energy Hub can be installed in less than 5 minutes and there is no requirement for main’s power integration. In addition to the reduced installation time, the Hub utilises High Efficiency Solar cells to charge an internal power pack, offering an environmentally responsible solution for remote power.
The Solar Energy Hub is a rapid installation product, taking less than 5 minutes to install. Using standard fixings, only two tools are required to install the product. Time on site for installation and maintenance is costly, particularly in a city-centre environment so any opportunity to limit time is of an advantage. In addition to its fast installation time, the Solar Energy Hub is also very easy to maintain with a removable carriage which holds all electronics and batteries.
The Solar Energy Hub can house an electronic gadget inside and power it using solar energy. The Solar Energy Hub can be utilised in a range of sectors, including: Smart Cities, Environmental Monitoring, Traffic, Rail, Livestock Tracking and Agricultural Monitoring.
The Solar Energy Hub’s low profile design means there is minimal additional wind loading on the post or wall the hub is fixed to.
