NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ENGIE, Eos Energy Storage (“Eos”) and Northern Power Systems Corp. (TSX: NPS) today announced that the they will work together to install a 1 megawatt (MW), 4 megawatt-hour (MWh) grid-scale energy storage solution supporting a hybrid solar and wind demonstration project, developed by ENGIE in Brazil. Eos and Northern Power will together manufacture and supply the turn-key, fully-integrated energy storage system combining the Eos Aurora battery with Northern Power’s FlexPhase™ power conversion technology and intelligent controls.
“In order to further develop the penetration of wind and solar, that are both intermittent sources of energy, and provide them as a stable green base load product to our clients, we need storage. We are therefore exploring many options available in the market. The integrated battery system from Eos and Northern represents a combination of a new promising Zinc based energy storage solution and a new digital based piloting system, which are attractive both from a cost and performance perspective,” says Raphael Schoentgen Research & Technology Director at ENGIE.

It’s hard enough convincing investors to trust advanced battery technology when it’s the increasingly recognizable lithium-ion variety. New Jersey-based battery startup Eos has a different challenge: pitching a technology few have heard of,* because the company was the first to invent it.
Its major tool in overcoming that challenge is price. Eos team members say they are already selling their system at $160 per kilowatt-hour for high-volume orders. That’s the DC system cost, so it doesn’t include inverters or installation, but it trounces the advanced battery competition and has raised many an eyebrow in the industry.
