Aquion are changing the way the world uses energy by delivering stationary energy storage systems that are high performance, safe, sustainable, and cost-effective. This unique combination of attributes delivers industry-leading value for our customers and can fundamentally change the economics of power generation, transmission and distribution.
In 2007, with support from Carnegie Mellon University, Dr. Jay Whitacre began researching low-cost electrochemical approaches to bulk energy storage. In 2008 he produced the first functioning Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI) battery. The result was promising enough to attract the attention of VC firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers, and by 2009, the technology was developed enough to spin out of Carnegie Mellon’s labs. The operations moved from Carnegie Mellon to the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh, where Aquion is headquartered today.
Aquion’s Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI™) battery systems are optimized for stationary, long duration daily cycling applications. This includes off-grid and microgrids, energy management, and grid-scale energy storage applications. Aquion’s battery systems provide flexible, modular energy storage that optimizes existing generation assets and enables broad adoption of renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar. Aquion’s economically compelling batteries can be assembled into systems ranging from kilowatt-hours to megawatt-hours.
