Aquion Energy is fundamentally­­ changing the economics of power generation, transmission and distribution by developing and commercializing cost-effective energy storage solutions that are safe, reliable, and sustainable from nontoxic components as simple as saltwater. Based on the research of Carnegie Mellon University Professor Jay Whitacre, Aquion's proprietary Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI™) battery overcomes the pitfalls of conventional energy storage technologies. AHI systems enhance the electrical grid by providing flexible, emissions-free capacity that optimizes existing generation assets and enables broad adoption of renewable energy technologies.
