Aquion Energy AHI Technology

Clean, cheap energy storage

Stationary batteries can store surplus wind and solar energy, turning a highly variable power source into a steady flow of electrons. But most are made from highly toxic or flammable materials. The Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI) battery relies on a salt-water–based electrolyte to carry the charge. It’s nontoxic, low-cost, and modular, and it can’t overheat.
