Aquion Energy, Siemens join for microgrid, energy storage development

Aquion Energy Inc. signed a memorandum of understanding with Siemens Industry Inc., under which the two companies will test the integration of Aquion’s AHI batteries and Siemens’ Sinamics S120 drive technology.

As part of the agreement, Siemens purchased an initial set of Aquion batteries for immediate shipment to their manufacturing and test facility in Alpharetta, Ga.

Siemens’ Sinamics S120 inverter solution and Aquion’s AE12 Battery Module product are currently under high voltage test at Aquion’s R&D facility in Pittsburgh, and will undergo additional joint testing at Siemens’ Alpharetta facility. Based on Aquion’s AHI battery technology, the AE12 Battery Module is an 18 kWh system that provides long-duration daily cycling for microgrid and grid applications.
