US outfit Aquion Energy is partnering with Schneider Electric and Japanese companies Re-Energy and Eiwat Solar to develop an energy storage system in Kagoshima prefecture.

The Eiwat storage 1 project will feature Schneider Electric’s Conext XW+ controller, a hybrid inverter that combines power conditioners for solar and storage capabilities in a single unit, and Aquion’s Aspen 48M-25.9 saltwater battery.

Aquion Energy chief executive Scott Pearson said: “We are delighted to partner with Schneider Electric, Eiwat and Re-Energy on this exciting project, which represents our largest deal to date and the first in Japan.

“As more utilities and renewable energy developers around the world search for a safe and truly renewable alternative to lithium-ion storage solutions, we see a significant opportunity for continued expansion into global markets for our Aspen battery series.”
