Aquion Energy Inc., a developer and manufacturer of Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI) batteries and energy storage systems, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Siemens Industry Inc., under which both parties will test the integration of Aquion's AHI batteries and Siemens' Sinamics S120 drive technology.

"We want to explore the Aqueous Hybrid Ion technology proposed by Aquion, validate its capabilities and potential for offering cost-effective grid-scale deployments and energy efficient microgrid and renewables support functions," says Dr. Razvan Panati, director of new technologies at Siemens. "Our intention is to support the Aquion team in developing fully integrated AHI-based energy storage systems using our scalable, industry-proven, off-the-shelf inverter technology."

"Our work with Siemens is a key step in the validation of our technology at commercial scale as we significantly ramp our production capacity," comments Scott Pearson, CEO of Aquion. "We look forward to showing that AHI batteries can be integrated with Siemens inverters to deliver cutting-edge storage solutions that are reliable, safe, cost-effective and environmentally benign to customers on a global scale."

Aquion notes that it produces beta AHI battery systems at its manufacturing facility in Westmoreland County, Pa., with commercial production slated to begin in the first half of 2014.
