OneAV and GivEnergy partner to supply smart home battery storage solutions to the CI channel

In a first-of-its-kind agreement for the smart home custom install sector, OneAV customers can now offer clients a GivEnergy battery that stores energy for the home.

The concept of battery storage is well-known for solar PV installations, but it’s often overlooked that batteries can also be installed without a solar PV installation.

In this scenario, homeowners can charge at night during lower cost off-peak tariff periods, then cleverly switch to battery power during the higher tariff periods. This instantly reduces monthly bills, and ultimately repays itself over time.

Key takeaways from the OneAV x GivEnergy partnership:

  • Battery storage with or without solar
  • Instantly reduces monthly energy bill
  • An uninterrupted power supply (UPS) backup for the entire home, not just the rack
  • Can be installed by any electrical qualified installer (subject to training)
  • A product that gradually repays itself over time
  • Control system integration for Crestron Home available now from Ultamation, other drivers to follow

GivEnergy is a leading British energy management solutions provider. OneAV recognises the opportunity for integrators in offering cutting-edge renewable energy technologies to homeowners.

The GivEnergy collaboration with OneAV is an innovative approach to giving integrators access to the products and training needed to offer their clients affordable sustainable energy solutions.

Should an installer not wish to undertake training, an additional element to the partnership is the option of utilising OY Electrical Services for commissioning.

Jason Howlett, CEO of GivEnergy, underlines the shared vision:

“GivEnergy is committed to levelling sustainable energy. Our product range, encompassing inverters, battery systems, EV chargers, and energy management software, perfectly complements OneAV’s commitment to delivering top-tier solutions.

Together, we empower integrators to offer streamlined, eco-conscious solutions to their clients.”

James Trumper, Director of OneAV, highlights the significance of this partnership:

“Renewable Technologies are a personal passion of mine. Collaborating with GivEnergy and OY Electrical empowers our customers with the expertise needed to seamlessly integrate renewables into AV projects.

This partnership equips integrators with the knowledge and tools to have informed discussions with clients about sustainable options.”

Cory Mac, Founder of OY Electrical, echoes this sentiment:

“The synergy between the smart home and renewable sectors is promising, yet the integration of these technologies remains largely unexplored.

Our collaboration bridges this gap, enabling installers and renewables companies to effortlessly integrate energy solutions into smart homes.”

OneAV’s expertise as a trusted value-added technology supplier in the CI industry, coupled with GivEnergy’s innovative energy management solutions, and OY Electricals’ technical knowledge in renewable energy integration is a powerful combined offering.

It promises integrators and clients an unmatched experience in sustainable energy integration and the perfect opportunity for installers to expand into this rapidly growing sector.
