Eos Energy Storage has announced it will partner with Siemens for the integration, installation and service of energy storage systems.
The two companies have jointly produced an energy storage system that includes AC power conversion and controls for modular installation and ease of maintenance. The system allows renewable energy developers a means of dispatchable hybrid power, and commercial customers load management savings and enhanced reliability.
The partnership will help enhance the Eos Aurora 1000│4000—a 1MW|4MWh DC battery system.
“Our goal is to standardize and productize energy storage projects with focus on reliability and return on investment for the customer,” said Siemens vice president Brian Dula. “This process starts with modeling and analytics to optimally size the energy storage asset and carries all the way through project implementation and performance guarantees. By offering a solution with supporting services, Siemens will help customers realize the full benefits of the Eos Aurora battery.”
“Working with such an established energy industry leader like Siemens is an exciting step for us and the energy storage industry,” said Eos CEO Michael Oster. “By combining Eos’ cost and performance advantage with Siemens’ capabilities in system integration and project execution, we are able to offer solutions that reduce risk and complexity for the customer while setting a new benchmark for energy storage reliability and cost-effectiveness.”
The partnership will begin installations in the first half of 2017, including a battery demonstration at PG&E’s Smart Grid Lab in San Ramon, California.
