Aquion Energy, Inc. Key Developments
Aquion Energy and Eguana Technologies Announce Technology Partnership
Aug 27 15
Aquion Energy Inc., and Eguana Technologies announced that they have successfully completed field trials of Eguana's Bi-Direx inverter with Aquion's AHI high performance batteries. The testing undertaken by Aquion successfully demonstrated the technologies of both companies working together as an integrated energy storage module. Target applications for the integrated module include standalone and battery backup power, village power, remote microgrids, diesel optimization, and military power on demand. Further, the same platform can be easily adapted to meet the growing demand for battery-based solar PV self-consumption and residential battery backup storage systems. Under the partnership, the companies will jointly market and support the combined solution to system integrators, OEMs, and other companies deploying energy storage systems. Both companies' respective components are certified to UL standards and are in production and widely available for purchase.

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.
