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.

Based on applications the market e-house market has been categorised into utilities, industries, oil & Gas and mining.
