This company is using intense amounts of logic (which requires almost no resources) to create a major shift of energy production away from fossil fuels towards cleaner methods like photovoltaics and fuel cells. We use deep cradle to grave Life Cycle Analysis of the Transverter to maximize beneficial environmental impact and promote Green Engineering. Financial benefits are created to motivate the move to greener energy management. The net effect will be less pollution from fossil fuels used for energy & materials, less aluminum and copper mined and less total energy used directly & for manufacturing & transportation. This is a realistic step moving renewable energy into the mainstream supporting existing systems.

are proposing is the real smart grid, one house at a time, providing
smart nodes, implementable today, integrated Renewable Energy, demand
data acquisition, advanced metering, end to end communications, power
control, energy security, community energy storage, a living system,
and adding applications over time. There
is nothing else that has been proposed which comes close to these
particularly considering that this can be implemented immediately for a
cost that can easily be financed. Read this detailed paper

Peaker Parity Presented at the OSIsoft Users Conference 2013 We have all waited for years
for solar to reach Grid Parity and it finally has in places like Hawaii,
the Carribean and Central America. However, with the Transverter
based Smart Solar Home Peaker Plant we have already passed Peaker Parity
everywhere. This was presented in detail by Heart Akerson at the
OSIsoft Users Conference on April 16th (Day Zero) at the
Hilton in San Francisco. See the video (use full screen)

The energy sector is waking up to the Transverter solution. Read Causing a Paradigm Shift in the Smart Grid from SMARTGRID publication. Take some time to read through the Smart Grid section.
Transverter Smart Grid Demonstration at Connectivity week 2012
Heart Transverter will have a fully functional Transverter based Smart Grid on display at Connectivity Week at the Santa Clara Convention Center May 22-24, 2012. Heart will be presenting and participating in a panel discussion on Balancing Demand Response and Demand Energy Response.
The future of the integrated grid at DISTRIBUTECH 2012
Heart Transverter had a fully functional display of the grid of the future combining individual autonomous nodes with the central power grid. Distributech www.distributech.com is the main focus show for the grid companies and took place Jan. 24 - 26 in San Antonio, Texas. The Transverter booth was #4431.
Transverter Displayed Fully Functional Example of New Business Model for the Solar Industry at Solar Power International 2011
Heart Transverter created a house with the roof covered with solar Panels for Solar Power International 2011. This was located at an outdoor exhibit and had two fully functional operating Transverter systems. This complete system is the Key to Infinitely Scalable Solar with Local Integrated Energy Storage combined with Automatic Demand Response & the Smart Grid with Autonomous Energy Security. The idea is to replace the old, two value, solar equation (energy produced + government handout) with a fat equation with very many values like UPS, Energy Security, Smart Grid, Energy Storage, Islanding, Power Factor Compensation, Surge Assist & Demand Response.
Transverter Smart Grid Demonstration at Connectivity week 2011
Heart Transverter had a fully functional Transverter based Smart Grid on display at Connectivity Week at the Santa Clara Convention Center May 23-26, 2011. The event began with a Value Proposition Roundtable of the Smart Grid and Heart Akerson was on the panel. He also presented about demand response The Untapped Potential for ADR. The OSIsoft - Transverter interface was also displayed. Heart Akerson and the Transverter won the Buildy Award for Innovatrion in the Smart Home.
OSIsoft - Transverter Microgrid Demonstration at Distributech
Heart Transverter and OSIsoft were pleased to present a Distributech first! We demonstrated a fully functional microgrid operating the OSIsoft booth at Distibutech 2011 in San Diego. This system integrated renewable energy and energy storage interactively with the grid while providing UPS level energy security for the OSIsoft booth. OSIsoft periodically disconnected the booth from the grid and ran the system as an "island" to demonstrate stand alone energy monitoring, management and security. The Transverter is particularly data rich in its Smart Grid implementation. The Heart Transverter has been integrated to the OSIsoft PI System and was demonstrated live along with OSIsoft‘s Process Book data monitoring and visualization software. This demonstration showed how you can achieve truly distributed energy intelligence integrated throughout all homes and offices on your network with all of the advantages of grid controlled demand response, renewable energy control and energy storage without the trouble and cost of extensive new communications networks. EPRI has estimated that the Smart Grid will cost $165 Billion and take 20 years to implement in the US. This system is ready to implement today, providing advanced benefits, in a small fraction of the time for a fraction of the price.
