Enphase products will soon integrate with Home Connect platform to optimize renewable energy

Enphase Energy has announced a new agreement with Home Connect, an open digital platform that allows the management of multi-brand home appliances with a single app. Home Connect is available for nine well-known household appliance brands, including Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau, Neff and Thermador. As part of the agreement, Enphase will integrate its home energy systems with the Home Connect platform, providing a smart, clean and highly efficient way to power Home Connect-enabled home appliances.

The vision is that Enphase and Home Connect will enable customers to easily configure Home Connect-compatible home appliances to operate during peak solar production, off-peak hours or when energy prices are lowest. In addition, consumers could set up the system to run devices on solar energy stored in home batteries for preset time frames. By simply linking a Home Connect account, users can seamlessly use the Enphase app to manage their Home Connect enabled appliances for optimum efficiency.

Enphase and Home Connect offer the following capabilities:

  • Adjust dishwasher or laundry preferences
  • Customize device schedules to operate based on time of day, electricity rates, or during peak solar production
  • Program devices to work once on a given day or repeat over several days

“Thanks to the partnership with Enphase, the Home Connect-compatible dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and washer-dryer can start automatically at the most economical time and maximize the use of clean energy,” said Stefanie Lipps, general manager at Home Connect. “This makes the households of our users more sustainable.”

The new functionality will be available on the Enphase app in the United States and Germany, starting with the integration of Home Connect-compatible dishwashers. For starters, users can optimize their dishwashers around time of day energy savings. New features and more devices will roll out to more countries with the platform in the coming year.

“We are excited to partner with home appliance brands like Bosch around a shared vision to create a more sustainable future for all,” said Gokul Krishnan, VP Business Development at Enphase Energy. “Consumers today are more motivated than ever to make sustainable lifestyle decisions and take control of their energy consumption. With just a few taps on the Enphase app, households can save money, run on solar energy and enjoy greater convenience in their daily lives.”
