Eos Energy Storage, a developer of energy storage solutions, and Ideal Power Inc., a developer of a disruptive power conversion technology, announced that Eos has selected Ideal Power's 30 kW battery converter technology to be integrated with its Aurora energy storage system.
This system will be connected to the grid and deployed by Con Edison in a New York City pilot project in the second quarter of 2014.
The Aurora system employs Eos's zinc hybrid cathode (Znyth) battery technology and is designed to enhance renewable energy generation, increase the grid's efficiency and resiliency, and reduce utilities' costs and consumers' electricity bills.
Eos's Aurora battery system is designed specifically to meet the requirements of the grid-scale energy storage market. With many hours of discharge capability, immediate response time, and modular construction, the Aurora system may be scaled and configured to maximize profitability in utility, commercial and industrial, and residential market segments.
