Electrical Houses (eHouses), also called Power Houses, are assembled, walk-in modular outdoor enclosures to house low voltage (LV) and medium voltage (MV) switchgear as well as secondary equipment. They can be wheel or a skid mounted and ready to operate in the field with minimum installation cost, commissioning and start up time. They can offer an alternative to traditional on-site building construction.
eHouses are tested before shipping, including all components, which minimises risks in the field. Mobility makes them easy and cost-effective to install and relocate. eHouses can be installed close to the main loads which reduces the power and control cable size and length.
The major factors driving the E-House market are; self-contained solutions and modular designs, rising investments in infrastructure projects, remote locations of end-users, growing renewables in the energy mix, and greenfield and brownfield T&D investments.
Technological advancements are anticipated to drive the Asia Pacific market for E-Houses in the coming years.
The major companies that are involved in E-Houses are General Electric Company, Siemens AG, ABB Ltd., Electroinnova Installations and Maintenance SL, Powell Industries, Schneider Electric SE, TGOOD Global Ltd., and Zest Weg Group.
