Clean Energy, Meet Clean Energy Storage.

You chose solar power. So, why choose a solar battery that’s harmful to the environment?

Sustainable salt water batteryIt only makes sense that renewable energy should be stored in an eco-friendly battery. Lead acid and lithium ion batteries require special disposal processes and contain finite materials, many of which are also toxic and damaging to humans and the earth.

Aquion batteries, on the other hand, are the world’s first truly sustainable batteries. Aspen batteries have an environmentally-friendly electrochemical design that contains no heavy metals, toxic chemicals, inorganic solvents, or other noxious materials. Our batteries rely on no heavy or toxic metals, such as lead, or caustic materials such as sulfuric acid or lithium hexafluorophosphate.

The chemistry is composed of simple elements that can be found abundantly on the planet. Aquion batteries are even safe enough to be disposed via traditional waste streams (but of course, always follow local regulations regarding disposal of any product).

Aquion received the certification in 2015. You can read the full product scorecard here.

“Aquion Energy made informed design decisions every step of the way to ultimately come up with a product that embodies the very essence of the Cradle to Cradle® design framework – safe materials, perpetually cycled.”

What does Cradle to Cradle Certified™ mean?

An independent, third-party verified certification program that assesses products and materials for safety to human and environmental health, design for future use cycles, and sustainable manufacturing. Products are evaluated for material health, material reutilization, renewable energy use, water stewardship, and social fairness.

What does Cradle to Cradle Certified™ mean?

To put it simply…

Aquion batteries will are not harmful to humans or the environment– from the very beginning to the very end of their useful life cycles. This is why businesses and homeowners around the world are choosing our clean energy storage for projects like organic wineries, ecotourism lodges, and remote, off-grid living in pristine areas of nature.

Take a look at some of our cleanest, greenest projects to see how we’re bring the world closer to unlocking the full potential of renewable energy:
