Eos Energy Storage has selected power conversion technology provider Ideal Power's 30 kW battery converter to be integrated with Eos' Aurora energy storage system.

According to Ideal Power, the system will be connected to the grid and deployed by utility Con Edison in a New York City pilot project in the second quarter of this year.

"We have successfully tested Ideal Power's 30 kW battery converter with our Aurora system to demonstrate bi-directional AC power flow and have been very pleased with the results," says Michael Oster, CEO of Eos. "Based on this performance, Eos has selected Ideal Power for the multi-kW-scale distributed energy storage system to be installed at a Con Edison site."

The demonstration project with Con Edison is supported by funding from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, Ideal Power notes.
