CALGARY, CANADA: Eguana Technologies Inc has expanded its energy storage partnership with LG Chem. Development has begun to optimise integration and delivery of LG Chem's new industry-leading JH3 battery cell technology for stationary storage systems as part of Eguana's AC Battery portfolio.

Since the product was first announced, the US Residential AC Battery, based on LG Chem's JH2 cell technology, has been certified to meet US national standards and passed rigorous internal testing at both Eguana and LG Chem. Deployments in the Hawaii and California markets have taken place in both homeowner and utility applications.

Eguana will also expand its AC Battery product line to introduce a 15kVA/37kWh commercial energy storage product based on the JH3 cell in the same standalone module format in the second quarter 2017.

The Eguana AC Battery is a certified, grid-ready power control solution pre-integrated with LG Chem Li-ion batteries.

“This is a natural, yet very exciting next step for our partnership. The new JH3 battery technology that won the ees award in June 2016, against a field of global competitors, provides the path for best in class fully integrated energy storage solutions. High capacity cells are the key to lower costs and increased performance and growth in the EV and stationary storage markets,” said Brent Harris, CTO at Eguana Technologies.

“Our engineering team has evaluated Eguana's integration of our lithium batteries into their AC Battery product and we have been very impressed by the reliability and the performance of their solution. We look forward to seeing the results of the next generation systems in 2017,” said Peter Gibson, US Sales Director of LG Chem.
