Aquion Energy Storage Systems

Aquion Energy Storage Systems

Aquion Energy want to change the way the world uses energy by delivering stationary energy storage systems that are high performance, safe, sustainable, and cost-effective. This unique combination of attributes delivers industry-leading value for our customers and can fundamentally change the economics of power generation, transmission and distribution.

Flexible, Scalable Energy Storage

Aquion’s battery systems are optimized for stationary, long duration daily cycling applications. This includes off-grid and microgrids, energy management, and grid-scale energy storage applications. Aquion’s battery systems provide flexible, modular energy storage that optimizes existing generation assets and enables broad adoption of renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar. Aquion’s economically compelling batteries can be assembled into systems ranging from kilowatt-hours to megawatt-hours.

Aquion battery systems let you store excess energy generated by wind and solar so you can use it when the sun is not shining or the wind is not blowing. Storing energy enables you to consume all the energy you produce and control your energy costs. Batteries also provide resiliency during storms to ensure you have critical power when the grid is down.

Batteries enable you to:

  • Consume all the solar and wind energy you produce, on-demand, when you need it

  • Control utility energy costs that rise based on time of day or demand charges

  • Reduce or eliminate your dependency on the grid

  • Have backup power during grid outages for critical household needs

While there are some differences for people living tied to the grid or off-grid, batteries play an assortment of roles in energy availability and consumption.

Solar Self-Consumption for Grid-tied and Off-grid Applications

With Maximum Utilization of Solar batteries play an important role in maximizing your use of solar power. Many grid-tied homeowners with solar panels end up relinquishing clean power they’ve generated back to the grid infrastructure. Adding battery storage enables homeowners to store the excess solar they generate during daylight hours and then discharge the batteries overnight to maximize their use of solar energy and reduce their reliance on the grid.

Backup Power and Islanding - Grid-tied and Off-grid Applications

Installing energy storage alongside solar can allow individual homes and business to continue to have energy even if there is a major loss of the grid. When the grid fails consumers with solar panels will not have access to their energy unless they have an off-grid battery back-up system already installed.

Including energy storage in your residential renewable energy system can allow you to island your home from the grid and enjoy all of the benefits of resiliency and security in times when the grid is down.

Time of Use Optimization - Grid-Tied Applications

Controlling Energy Costs with Batteries depending on where you live, you may pay variable energy rates based on time of day and time of year. The general rule here is that energy costs the most at the times of highest demand. While you could do laundry in the middle of the night or not run your AC during the hottest time of day to save money. It would be a lot more convenient to to use energy when you need it without worrying about time of use costs.

Batteries can silently and efficiently charge overnight from the grid when energy is the cheapest, and then you can use the energy stored in the battery during the highest-cost daytime hours.

Demand Charge Reduction - Grid-tied Applications

In some areas, utilities apply a demand charge when consumers exceed their peak power limit. These demand charge penalties are often so onerous that even if you only exceed your peak power limit one time in the course of a billing cycle, you are penalized by having to pay a higher rate for the entire billing cycle.

In these situations, you can use a battery system in order to monitor the power that your home or business is pulling from the grid and dispatch power from the battery to keep you below this peak power threshold. Doing this can prevent demand charges on your utility bill and save you money at the end of every month.
