Aquion Energy And Siemens Industry Teaming-Up To Offer Integrated Grid/Micro-Grid Energy Storage Systems

Originally published on Ecopreneurist.

Aquion Energy, developer/manufacturer of Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI) batteries and energy storage systems, is now teaming up with the maker of the Sinamics S120 drive technology, Siemens Industry Sector, to offer a fully integrated AHI-based energy storage system. The two companies have signed a memorandum of understanding under which both companies will test the integration of Aquion’s AHI batteries and Siemens’ Sinamics S120 drive inverter.

The integration of the Sinamics S120 inverter solution and the AE12 Battery Module is currently undergoing high voltage tests at Aquion’s research and development facility in Pittsburgh. It will soon begin undergoing additional testing at Siemens’ Alpharetta facility. (“The breakthrough AE12 Battery Module is an 18 kilowatt hour system that provides high performance, long-duration daily cycling for microgrid and grid applications.”)

“With its novel Aqueous Hybrid Ion technology, Aquion has emerged with an exciting new energy storage solution. We want to explore the Aqueous Hybrid Ion technology proposed by Aquion, validate its capabilities and potential for offering cost effective grid-scale deployments and energy efficient Microgrid and Renewables support functions,” stated Dr Razvan Panati, director of new technologies at Siemens Industry. “Our intention is to support the Aquion team in developing fully integrated AHI-based energy storage systems using our scalable, industry proven, off-the-shelf inverter technology.”

“Our work with Siemens is a key step in the validation of our technology at commercial scale as we significantly ramp our production capacity,” said Scott Pearson, chief executive officer of Aquion. “We look forward to showing that AHI batteries can be integrated with Siemens inverters to deliver cutting-edge storage solutions that are reliable, safe, cost-effective and environmentally benign to customers on a global scale.”
