Aquion Energy, Inc. Enters Agreement for Major Microgrid Battery System Deployment at Bakken Hale in Hawaii
Jan 7 15
Aquion Energy, Inc. announced that it has signed an agreement to supply a 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) battery system as part of an off-grid solar microgrid at Bakken Hale on the Island of Hawaii. Bakken Hale, a private residential estate, is located along the environmentally sensitive Kona Coast. The Aquion battery system will store energy generated from a large on-site solar installation and will enable Bakken Hale to operate entirely from self-generated solar power. The off-grid microgrid system will be designed and installed by Renewable Energy Services, Inc.  (RES), an experienced solar system installer in Hawaii. The microgrid uses a 176 kW solar array, a 1 MWh Aquion AHI battery system, and a propane-fueled generator used solely for emergency backup. The system is designed to generate 350 MWh per year silently from the sun, with little maintenance for 20 years. Over that time, the system will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 5,000 metric tons. The batteries will charge from the solar array during daylight hours, and discharge to provide nighttime power on a daily 8-hour charge/16-hour discharge cycle. Aquion battery systems are well suited for this type of long-duration, daily cycling charge/discharge profile.

Aquion Energy Unveils Next Generation of AHI Battery Technology
Oct 21 14
Aquion Energy, Inc. unveiled the second generation of AHI technology, delivering energy gains of up to 40%. The increased energy is achieved without an increase in the size or weight of either the S-Line Battery Stack or M-Line Battery Module product lines and directly translates into improved performance and delivered value in all of Aquion's target applications. Aquion's entire product line will see improvements with the second generation of AHI technology, including both the S-Line Battery Stack and M-Line Battery Modules. At shorter four to eight hour discharge rates, systems will experience an energy increase of up to 40%. At longer 20 hour discharge rates the second generation S-Line Battery Stack will see a 24% increase in energy to 2.4 kilowatt-hours, while the new M-Line Battery Module will see a 16% increase, now totaling 25.5 kilowatt-hours. The substantial increase in energy was achieved through improved utilization of the active material within the AHI cells.
