Sentinel Solar unveils AHI Wave ESS plug and play residential storage system

The Sentinel Solar has unveiled its new energy storage system at Solar Power International Conference in Las Vegas. The new launch from Sentinel Solar is a storage system based on the safest, cleanest and most reliable battery chemistry ever.

The AHI Wave ESS is the latest ‘plug-and-play’ energy storage system designed by the Canadian manufacturer Sentinel Solar for residential use. Engineered for solar and storage applications, the new battery features minimal hardware and simplified wiring inputs, facilitating for easy installation and set-up. Its base unit affords a continuous 4kW output, which can be expanded with energy demands. The AHI Wave ESS does not require regular maintenance.

The Ontario-based firm said it “closes the loop in the clean energy cycle” as a sustainably developed means to produce, store and consume clean energy. It has been designed for peak load shaving, grid stabilisation, self-consumption and remote power applications.

Sentinel Solar has partnered with US firms Outback Power and Aquion on the system; it integrates a battery from the former and an inverter from the latter, including all wiring and communications devices.

Aquion claims its popular Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI) batteries, including the Aspen range used in the AHI Wave ESS, are non-flammable and non-explosive, and certified for their sustainable components, which include no heavy metals or toxic chemicals.

 “Renewable energy sources such as solar and wind have vast potential to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions in the electric sector but rapid adoption of these sources have been stalled due to the lack of sustainable and reliable energy storage capability,’’ Adam Webb, President and Chief Executive at Sentinel Solar said.

“The AHI Wave’s complete energy storage solution addresses the issues faced by varying power demands and intermittent production from renewable energy sources.”
