Pre-approved by Enova

To receive support for smart electricity management, which Enova calls a price and power-controlled energy storage system, you need a system that automatically regulates electricity consumption at times of the day when electricity is cheapest.

For example, if you connect an electric car charger, hot water tank or underfloor heating to a smart power management system, Enova will subsidise the measure by up to NOK 10,000 or 35%.

Futurehome offers such a system, which in combination with an electric car charger and other energy sources in the house, fulfills the requirements for applying for support for smart power management. Read more here about how to apply for Enova grant.
