Eos Energy touts storage for NY microgrid as ‘lowest-cost battery solution on the market’
Eos Energy Storage says it has put almost 10 years of research and development efforts into optimizing its 1-MW, 45-MWh Aurora energy storage product for low cost and energy storage density.
The result, Philippe Bouchard, vice president of business development for Eos Energy, said in a Microgrid Knowledge article, is a storage system “we believe is the lowest-cost battery solution on the market.”
Eos, which is located New York and New Jersey, says its zinc hybrid cathode battery technology is modular in design and can be sized and configured to meet varying customer requirements.
Eos Energy’s goal in the project is to “demonstrate scalability, reliability, and operability of the 250kW/1MWh battery system to commercial and industrial customers/end users, who are expected to comprise a significant share of the behind-the-meter energy storage market” according to an executive summary of the project.
