Lg Spain presents a self-sufficient smart home


LG Spain constructed a passive, connected house in Madrid, attracting a variety of different personalities and enlisting them in the Smart Green cause. An interesting sample of home using 70-90 percent less energy compared to a conventional building. In this building efficient LG products are placed and are all powered with energy collected by solar panels integrated into the house. Among other things, the solar panels supply enough energy to charge an electric vehicle and operate LG’s Therma V Air to Water Heat Pump System, which provides heating and hot water supply four times more efficiently than a conventional boiler. Any surplus energy collected is stored in connected batteries for later use.
LG Hanok ThinQ & Passivhaus is based on the well-known architectural style of traditional Korean homes. South Korea’s rich cultural heritage, Hanok, has always been important to LG’s business philosophy, informing its long-standing commitment to innovation, growth and protecting the environment. Hanok combined with ThinQ is the coming together of the traditional and the new. Passivhaus, also Passive House, is a voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a structure that maintains ideal interior conditions while
“Through this forward-thinking project – they say from the company – LG Spain is effectively demonstrating a viable way for home owners to make efficient use of clean energy without having to sacrifice everyday conveniences. In the future, this non-polluting method of powering the home could provide additional income, with the surplus energy captured by the solar panels sold to local electricity providers.”
In addition to eco-friendly appliances, there is another factor that can help achieve a more efficient home: connectivity. Utilizing LG ThinQ, LG Hanok shows how enhanced connectivity can optimize energy usage throughout the house.
