Aquion Energy, Inc., developer and manufacturer of Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI™) batteries and energy storage systems, has introduced the Aspen 24S, a 24-volt version of its award-winning Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI) battery.
The new product is designed for energy-intensive applications that use solar panels, such as off-grid solar-powered LED lighting, as well as small pumps and motors. It is also an ideal drop-in replacement for existing systems using 24-volt lead-acid batteries.
More than 700 Aspen 24S batteries are already operating in a demanding field environment in Thailand. In the first quarter of 2016, Aquion completed an installation at Bangkok International Airport's Sky Lane bicycle track. The project successfully demonstrates the 24-volt battery under real-use autonomous conditions, connected to solar panels and energy-efficient LED lighting. The Aspen 24S was an especially good fit for this application's requirements because it delivers long cycle life, deep cycling capability, and robust performance in high ambient temperatures and partial state of charge cycling conditions.
Aspen 24S batteries are now available for purchase. See the How to Buy section on the Aquion website for more details.
Traditionally, off-grid renewable energy systems that include energy storage have used lead-acid batteries, known for their toxicity and relatively short lifespan under deep cycling and partial state of charge usage -- a common profile with solar-based systems. Aquion's Aspen batteries offer a clean, sustainable, and long-lasting alternative that does not degrade from partial state of charge cycling. Aspen batteries have a unique and environmentally friendly electrochemical design, and are the first and only batteries in the world to be Cradle to Cradle Certified™. They contain no heavy metals or toxic chemicals and are non-flammable and non-explosive, making them the safest batteries in the world -- designed for use in pristine environments, island locations, homes and businesses.
