Eos Energy Storage plans to ramp up manufacturing with the support of a $1 million award from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

The company says the funding follows its recent manufacturing partnership with Incodema, a full-service rapid prototyping company, to begin MW-scale production of Eos' zinc hybrid cathode (Znyth) battery technology. The NYSERDA award, Eos notes, supports investment in equipment that will increase commercial production of the technology.

According to Eos, the award will also support performance and reliability testing of Znyth at the BEST Test and Commercialization Center in Rochester, N.Y. The company reports that the facility will help accelerate commercialization of its 1 MW/6 MWh Aurora energy storage system.

Eos is planning to test the Aurora system at a Con Edison facility in the middle of this year. The company adds that the pilot testing of the technology with Con Edison sets the stage for further demonstration projects with Eos' other utility partners under its Genesis program. The partners include NRG, American Electric Power, National Grid, GDF Suez, Enel and others.

After closing its Series B capital raise in 2013 with NRG Ventures and Fisher Brothers as lead investors, Eos says it is now raising its Series C to support further scale-up of manufacturing and broader commercial availability of its products in 2016.
