BlueSky Energy will Aquion Energy kaufen

Der Oberösterreichische Stromspeicherspezialist BlueSky Energy hat ein verbindliches Angebot zum Kauf der Vermögenswerte der US Firma Aquion Energy abgegeben. Das Übernahmeangebot wurde von den amerikanischen Eigentümervertretern angenommen. Es ist geplant, dass bis Juli 2017 der Bieterprozess abgeschlossen ist.

„Wir arbeiten bereits seit Jahren mit der Technologie und den Produkten von Aquion und sehen in der Salzwassertechnologie einen Zukunftsmarkt für Stromspeicherung. Wir planen mit dieser stark zu expandieren“, erklärt Helmut Mayer, Geschäftsführer von BlueSky Energy den Grund für die geplante Übernahme. „Die Vorteile des Systems liegen eindeutig in der Sicherheit, Wartungsfreiheit und der Umweltfreundlichkeit. Bis jetzt haben wir diese Salzwasserzellen zugekauft und daraus unseren schlüsselfertigen Gesamtspeicher GREENROCK entwickelt.“

Aquion wurde 2008 vom amerikanischen Universitätsprofessor Jay F. Whitacre gegründet und mit Investoren wie Kleiner Perkins, Foundation Capital, Bill Gates, Nick and Jobey Pritzker, Bright Capital and Advanced Technology Ventures mit über 180 Millionen Dollar finanziert.

Die Salzwasserspeicher-Technologie eignet sich nach Aussage von Mayer perfekt für Eigenheime und kleine sowie mittlere Unternehmen, die ihren erzeugten Strom energieautark für den Eigenverbrauch optimieren möchten und dabei auf das Thema Sicherheit setzen. Diese ist nicht entflammbar oder explosiv, berührungssicher und wartungsfrei. Die Technologie habesich, so Mayer, weltweit bereits bei zigtausenden Haushalten erfolgreich im Einsatz bewährt. 2015 wurde die Salzwassertechnologie mit dem Umweltzertifikat „cradle to cradle“ ausgezeichnet. Es würden keine gesundheits- und umweltschädlichen Materialien mehr verwendet und alle Stoffe können dauerhaft wieder verwendet werden.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 55.280.513 von R-BgO am 07.07.17 12:38:26Energy storage cost-competitive for commercial applications McKinsey says

7/4/17, 2:26 PM -

Low-cost energy storage could transform the power landscape. The implications are profound according to global management consultancy McKinsey.


Energy storage costs are falling and providing growing business opportunities especially for commerical customers, McKinsey says.

Energy storage prices are dropping much faster than anyone expected, due to the growing market for consumer electronics and demand for electric vehicles (EVs), McKinsey states. Major players in Asia, Europe, and the United States are all scaling up lithium-ion battery manufacturing to serve electric cars and other power applications. Battery-pack costs are down to less than $230 per kilowatt-hour in 2016, compared with almost $1,000 per kilowatt-hour in 2010.


Reduce peak consumption levels

McKinsey research has found that energy storage is already economical for many commercial customers to reduce their peak consumption levels. At today’s lower prices, storage is starting to play a broader role in energy markets, moving from niche uses such as grid balancing to broader ones such as replacing conventional power generators for reliability, providing power-quality services, and supporting renewables integration


Evolving business case also for households

„Further, given regulatory changes to pare back incentives for solar in many markets, the idea of combining solar with storage to enable households to make and consume their own power on demand, instead of exporting power to the grid, is beginning to be an attractive opportunity for customers, sometimes referred to as partial grid defection. We believe these markets will continue to expand, creating a significant challenge for utilities faced with flat or declining customer demand. Eventually, combining solar with storage and a small electrical generator (known as full grid defection) will make economic sense—in a matter of years, not decades, for some customers in high-cost markets“, McKinsey states.


Unique flexibility as an asset of energy storage

“Energy storage can be deployed both on the grid and at an individual consumer’s home or business. A complex technology, its economics are shaped by customer type, location, grid needs, regulations, customer load shape, rate structure, and nature of the application. It is also uniquely flexible in its ability to stack value streams and change its dispatch to serve different needs over the course of a year or even an hour. These value streams are growing both in value and in market scale”, McKinsey says. (HCN)

https://www.greentechmedia.com/articles/read/ge-can-now-put-…

"GE's steam, gas and wind turbines make up one-third of electricity capacity around the world. Now the industrial giant has the capability to layer batteries on top of all those generators, if desired.

This week, the industrial and power giant unveiled a battery and controls package that can be integrated into any of its steam or gas turbines. Soon, it will be ready for solar, wind and hydroelectric generators. It's a solution that could change the way many power plants are used for real-time energy services."

' Scientists at Jülich’s Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK) suspect another cause for the short running time: the consumption of the electrolyte. As part of the AlSiBat project funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the researchers developed a pump system in which the electrolyte fluid – potassium hydroxide dissolved in water – was refilled from time to time.

“If the silicon anode remains in contact with the electrolyte, the battery will continue running,” explains Hermann Tempel from the IEK’s Fundamental Electrochemistry. The battery is thus able to achieve a running time of over 1,100 hours, or almost 46 days, he adds. “Until the silicon is fully used up. The battery can subsequently be recharged by exchanging the anode, in other words mechanically.” '

"New owner is unnamed US-majority investor

A couple of months ago, it was reported that a company based in Europe was bidding on Aquion’s assets, although it was never clear if the intention was to carry on the company and its name. However, that bidder appears to have lost interest, or to have been unsuccessful, as according to Aquion, the new owners are an as-yet unnamed “majority-American joint venture (JV)”.

Philip Juline, now CEO of Aquion, said the new leadership aimed to turn Aquion into a “billion-dollar company in the upcoming years”, claiming it was only limited by its “ability to ramp and scale” operations to meet demand.

“Aquion Energy will be a stronger company after emerging from this protection transition period. We are refocused on technology and go-to-market opportunities that will grow significant volume for the company in the coming years. Aquion's battery technology has always been world leading. We now need to focus on what we do best – creating the safest, cleanest, and lowest cost per kWh-cycle battery technology in the world – with a simple business model that can effectively compete in the marketplace,” Juline also said.

“With a renewed focus on expanding our product offerings into the growing markets in China and other global markets, we intend to deliver the lowest price per kWh-cycle battery in the world.” "
