Adara Power, Aquion deal connects storage system to the cloud for DR programs
Adara Power has formed a partnership with Aquion Energy which will use Aquion’s aqueous hybrid ion technology to support Adara’s iC3 technology.
The iC3 platform integrates battery and inverter controls with cloud software and internet of things connectivity, enabling an energy storage system to be remotely monitored and dispatched for grid-connected applications.
- Adara says its iC3 platform will enable Aquion’s batteries to be deployed for aggregated demand response programs and to meet utility and local regulations that require robust controls and remote programmability.
The spread of energy storage is not just tied to the proliferation of renewables, but also to an expanding portfolio of applications.
Last year, an Aquion installation at a California winery gave the farm and winery the capability for solar self-consumption, peak shaving and load shifting services.
Aquion has now partnered with Adara, a privately held Silicon Valley firm, to combine its aqueous hybrid ion battery technology with Adara’s software to make its battery systems remotely dispatchable. Adara also says its iC3 technology optimizes battery life and performance relative to a facility’s electrical load demand.
“As Aquion continues to engage with utilities and large customers around the world, we see a significant opportunity for fleet management software and more sophisticated control systems to be deployed with our batteries,” Scott Pearson, CEO of Aquion, said in a statement.
