Apparent Inc., a pioneer in clean energy solutions, is set to revolutionize the water heating landscape with its groundbreaking ExElement Heating System (EXEL). Designed to expedite the shift from traditional natural gas and electric resistance water heaters to advanced, clean energy, grid-responsive technologies, EXEL aligns with national, local, and utility strategies for rapid decarbonization. Apparent’s affordable and innovative water heating solution caters to housing developers, meeting the clean energy requirements of states like CA Title 24 and Hawaii building standards. The heart of the system lies in Apparent’s proprietary Intelligent Grid Operating System (igOS™), an AI and machine learning software platform that transforms the water heater into a bi-directional demand management tool.

This enables consumers to optimize energy consumption, benefit from dynamic pricing models, and contribute to a more sustainable future. The EXEL system eliminates 20-30% of energy bills associated with hot water heating, making it an attractive choice for consumers and offering a complete paradigm shift in harnessing solar energy for a carbon-neutral, clean energy home. With the potential to play a key role in grid-responsive Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), EXEL presents a climate-friendly pathway for advancements in the global water heater market, projected to surpass $49 billion by 2030. Building developers are invited to embrace this innovative solution, contributing to a greener and more sustainable future while meeting ESG targets.
