Green Building

Sustainable batteries for sustainable architecture.

Batteries maximize a green building’s use of solar power: self-consumption of stored solar energy overnight, time-of-use optimization, and demand response to increase a building’s energy efficiency. Batteries also serve as backup power. Energy storage helps buildings meet or exceed the energy requirements of the most stringent sustainability certifications, including LEED and the Living Building Challenge.

Aquion’s cutting-edge, environmentally friendly saltwater batteries are optimized for daily deep cycling and provide robust, reliable performance without any maintenance. They’re the only batteries in the world to be Cradle to Cradle Certified™ were a BuildingGreen Top 10 Sustainable Product for 2017, and helped Santa Clara win a tiny home competition.

LEED Certification: Make your green buildings even greener.

icon_cluster_05Batteries might not be the first thing that comes to mind when shopping for green building materials. But with Aspen batteries, you can take your sustainable construction to the next level with sustainability certifications, like the LEED certification. Aquion batteries can contribute to LEED credits in the following areas:

Energy & Atmosphere: Optimize Energy Performance (18), Renewable Energy Production (3), Green Power & Carbon Offsets (2), Demand Response (2)

Materials & Resources: Building Product Disclosure and Optimization: Environmental Product Declarations (2), Material Ingredients (2)
