Axion Power International Inc., the developer of lead-carbon PbC batteries and energy storage systems, says that its Residential Energy Storage Hub has achieved certification to UL 1741, IEEE 1547 and Canadian Standards Association safety standards. According to Axion, the certification will effectively allow the hub to be marketed and installed throughout North America.

The Residential Energy Storage Hub offers secure home power for the residential market segment, including uninterruptible, distortion-free power capabilities, as well as an ability to store energy from renewable sources or from the electric grid, the company says. The hub also has the ability to be grid-connected so that either on a regular or occasional basis the homeowner can participate in demand response and/or power curtailment with a local utility.
