Facts about Free Energy Innovation

Free Energy Innovation is a Scandinavian company with head office in Trondheim. The company has subsidiaries in Denmark and Sweden. CEO, Marcus Kanewoff, of Free Energy Innovation tells “Free Energy has developed a unique hybrid heat pump where solar energy is utilized to increase the efficiency of the heat pump. Through an innovative management system, solar heating is utilized where it makes the most of use, either to produce hot water and heat directly to the storage tank or to preheat the brine circuit before it reaches the compressor. In the event of excess heat, heat is returned to the borehole or ground loop. Alternatively, the heat can be stored in a soil based seasonal storage (ASES – Active Solar Energy Storage).

It is also possible to troubleshoot the facility remotely. The HYSS- software is expandable with new features.
