Where smart energy
You got solar on your home and
you live in Flanders?
A smart home battery will not only boost your solar returns, it also grants you a direct cashback of 2550 EUR!
Let's connect your home to the energy transition.
Solar panels, battery systems and electric vehicles have a significant impact on our electricity grids. We turn this into a positive impact, both for your wallet and for society as a whole.
By linking many homes together into a large virtual energy community, our algorithms interact with the energy markets and deliver valuable flexibility while balancing supply with demand.

iO is much more than just solar energy storage,
Solar power and battery systems are becoming very popular.
Unfortunately, most solutions lack the intelligence to meet the promised return on your investment.
Even worse, they aren't helping us in the energy transition, often leaving a negative impact on our electricity infrastructure.
So what is the right choice in this complex space?
We took the liberty to figure that out for you, after devoting many years of research and development.
We named it iO, a Fair and Future proof solution,
Not just for you, but for all of us.
As a clear and simple integrated solution,
iO optimizes your power flow while
helping and valorising the needs
of the energy markets.
Machine learning algorithms continuously adapt how to operate to match your daily behaviour as well as that of society.
In doing so, iO guarantees to get the
absolute max out of your system,
at the lowest possible cost!
iO is a Win for you and a
Win for the Energy Transition
Going solar is excellent – an overloaded grid isn’t
Homes generate more energy than they can directly consume. This excess power is fed back into the grid, which not only is a waste of money but also creates an unstable power network. A home-battery has a double value in keeping the grid balanced by providing extra power during peak hours, as well as relieving it when it’s overloaded.
Boost your home’s self-consumption
Solar panels alone don’t make your home self-sufficient. Did you know the average solar home only uses about 30% of their generated energy? Storing your self-produced energy to use at night or on a cloudy day, is essential to make the sun into a genuinely sustainable power source.
iO Minimizes your electrical bill, while stabilizing the power grids!
Whatever the situation, today or 10 years from now, iO will maximize your returns by boosting your solar self-consumption, reducing power peaks and by storing cheaper off-peak energy from the grid. When prices peak, stored energy is injected back to the grid – energy rate arbitrage made easy!
The name iO symbolises the synergy between hardware and software
Combining input and Output of physical power flow with the 1's and 0's, the Bits and Bytes for data and digital control.
We deliver value over time, so iO is designed to last.
Engineered in Belgium as an integrated solution, storage modules use lithium iron (LiFePO4) battery cells to guarantee long life-cycles, high safety and low environmental impact.
Fast install with stackable and easily scalable modules. Compatible with any existing or new PV system. Automatic system updates – minimising operational costs from day one.
The automated control is divided between central and local Energy Management to make sure your system as well as the entire fleet, operate at maximal performance.
At all times.
Welcome to our Virtual powr community:
Sharing makes things better, especially energy!
Connecting a network of households together to form one large virtual power community allows us to share energy surplus capacity, perform external market arbitrage and offer balancing services.
Together, united as producers and consumers, we maximize the benefits for us all.
