Aquion Energy, the makers of a saltwater battery that can power your off grid home for 10 years is returning to production in 2018 according to a recent press release on their website. “Aquion Energy is excited to announce its return to the market in 2018. An improved AHI product based on the S-Line and Aspen form factor is targeted for an April 2018 release.” This is good news for the off grid living community and sustainable technology industry as a whole and for homesteaders and off gridders who want a more sustainable way to store energy.
The simple beauty of this battery is that it uses saltwater as the electrolyte rather than sulfuric acid. The saltwater battery is non-toxic, more sustainable, less expensive, and better for the environment. The battery is massively scalable as well which provides energy storage solution for almost any sized operation from a small off grid homestead, business, and large scale industrial projects.
Here is the full text of their announcement:
“Aquion Energy is excited to announce its return to the market in 2018. An improved AHI product based on the S-Line and Aspen form factor is targeted for an April 2018 release.
Since March of this year the Aquion Energy’s Pittsburgh Pennsylvania based R&D and Engineering teams have been working to improve upon the chemistry and quality of the original Aquion S-Line/Aspen battery stack. Improvements will include a boost to the energy density of the stack, continued improvements to cycle life and lifetime capacity degradation all while using the same materials that make Aquion Energy batteries the safest and most sustainable batteries on the market.
It was this commitment to safety, sustainability, and a portfolio of projects across the globe which attracted a large US capital private equity fund to acquire Aquion Energy. This fund has allowed Aquion Energy to emerge out of the restructuring period in just three months since the company filed for Chapter 11 protection.
With capital funding now secure, Aquion can confidently re-enter the market with expanded global manufacturing capabilities. Ultimately these capabilities will result in some of the most competitive acquisition and operational costs in the energy storage industry.
Aquion Energy Salt Water Batteries
The battery is very simple.
This is a company I can get behind completely and will be investing in. Regardless of their previous hiccups in getting the company and technology off the ground, the fact of the matter is there is nothing else like it on the market currently. The long term benefits of manufacturing sustainable energy products are many, including but not limited to the fact it’s simply better for the environment and human beings.
In this author’s opinion, sustainable, environmentally friendlier, non-toxic battery and solar energy technology is the future of energy.
