Aquion Energy Inc., a developer and manufacturer of Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI) batteries and energy storage systems, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) 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 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."

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. As part of the MOU, Siemens purchased an initial set of Aquion batteries for immediate shipment to its manufacturing and test facility in Alpharetta, Ga.
