  • Eos Energy Storage LLC (" Eos"), a leading producer of safe, affordable as well as long-duration zinc battery storage space systems, today introduced a growth of its collaboration with Nayo Tropical Technology Ltd. (" Nayo"), a leading West African mini-grid design, purchase, as well as building and construction (" EPC") firm. Eos will certainly deploy additional systems of its signature Aurora EnergyBlock ™ systems, rated at 125kW/500kWh, to 4 country microgrid projects in Nigeria in the first quarter of 2021.

In July, Eos revealed it had entered into an arrangement with Nayo to bring secure, environmentally friendly, low-maintenance, easy-to-deploy energy storage space to the African market for using locals as well as neighborhood organizations in rural places. This new agreement expands on the success of that program by integrating solar photovoltaic or pv generation as well as energy storage space to supply trustworthy electrical power to homes and also services in remote Nigerian communities, in addition to minimizing reliance on diesel generators.

A remarkable advantage of Eos' microgrid battery energy storage space system is that it can save renewable resource that can be launched at a later time and under extreme climate condition, giving rural areas as well as remote atmospheres a trustworthy service for energy storage space as well as generation. High temperatures can be an obstacle for other battery technologies, as they require home heating, air flow, as well as a/c (" HVAC") systems, which get worn and fall short frequently in warm climates. Eos' batteries do not require HVAC and can run accurately in warm places without it.

" Eos was quick to show that its positively resourceful energy storage options are distinctly suited to severe environments and also rural releases with our last release," claimed Dr. Balki G. Iyer, Chief Commercial Officer of Eos. "We are proud to expand our collaboration with Nayo with a follow up in the first quarter, and also we expect offering the energy demands of extra neighborhoods in the future with Nayo as our partner."

Eos' clients, consisting of utilities, EPC business and storage integrators, gain from extra features including easy installment, marginal supporting power demands to run the system, the capacity to power with grid interruptions, basic maintenance and long-term item life. Remote project websites can often be an obstacle, as they can be much from a supply chain as well as labor force, yet the low upkeep needs of the Eos battery make it a fitting service despite these limitations.

" Eos' technology fit our specific needs for energy storage," stated Okenwa Anayo Nas, Chief Executive Officer of Nayo. "As a follow up to the first storage job, we were quick to move forward with extra installations. With Eos batteries, our tasks are providing on their pledge to bring energy to remote villages throughout Africa. We value the reduced cost-per-kilowatt-hour and versatility of Eos' option."

Nayo has greater than 25 new mini grids in its pipe to release throughout West Africa, which Eos prepares to support as the market expands over the following two years.
