Electrification and automation technology leader ABB E-mobility’s new residential AC charging solution Terra Home is set to go on sale later this year. Enabling a more sustainable and resource-efficient future, the Terra Home automatically prioritizes electricity from renewable domestic sources, such as solar and wind. The ABB E-mobility app delivers charging notifications and ensures the owner alone can connect to their Terra Home through app authentication.
Unveiled at the world’s most influential tech event CES 2023 in Las Vegas, the Terra Home ushers in the next generation of consumer choice for residential EV charging. The innovative design will enable users to make the best possible use of their renewable energy sources to further reduce their carbon footprint. It is predicted that by 2040, between 340 and 490 million chargers are needed globally, and that this figure will be dominated by home chargers, representing 82% of all EV charging installations.
Leon van de Pas, SVP for the Destination charging business line at ABB E-mobility, said: “As we mark the start of yet another pivotal year in our drive to enable a low-carbon society, the new Terra Home provides the flexibility for an even greater number of people to simply and stylishly embrace the transition to electric mobility.”
The minimalistic design, choice of materials and options for personalized covers means the Terra Home will fit seamlessly into a wide range of homes and lifestyles. While intelligent features such as Plug N Charge enable instant and automatic recognition between car and charger, making charging authorization completely seamless. In addition, interactive lighting features indicate the state of the charging session, while notifications on charging status are easily accessible on the ABB E-mobility charger app, which can also be used to authenticate a charge, ensuring that the owner alone can connect to their Terra Home.
With the ability to automatically prioritize electricity from renewable domestic sources, ABB are confident the Terra Home sets a new benchmark for sustainable charging choice, enabling the user to make the best possible use of their renewable energy sources and further reduce their carbon footprint.
