Streamline Power Ltd. announces the first of many UK residential installations of SimpliPhi Power energy storage systems in a small under stairs Harry Potter size cupboard. The 6.88kWhr SimpliPhi Power battery installation with Victron inverter (pictured below) will provide overnight power for the Winchester family for 10 plus years.
The two SimpliPhi Power PHI 3.4kWhr batteries, which do not contain cobalt or pose the risk of ‘thermal runaway’, are the safest, most efficient, compact and robust Lithium Ion battery available (based on U.S. Government extreme stress testing of 31 different battery technologies), are charged using excess power generated from the Winchester home owner’s rooftop solar panels during the daylight hours.
Catherine Von Burg, CEO of SimpliPhi Power said, “We are delighted that our PHI batteries were chosen by the Winchester family over any other Lithium chemistry, as they are non-toxic, safe and long lasting, making them an ideal home, school or commercial energy storage solution. We are working in partnership with Streamline Power to set up a SimpliPhi Power Dealer/Services network across the UK and Ireland for our stationary ESS products. Streamline Power is part of Solar PV Partners, a company who has demonstrated their ability to roll out new battery technologies in residential and commercial applications for off-grid and grid connected customers in the UK and Europe.” Streamline Power Limited, the green energy company based in Winchester, Hampshire is the UK/European distributor of SimpliPhi Power, a privately-owned California company that has been deploying energy storage systems (ESS) for fifteen years.
Dennis Garrison,Managing Director of Streamline Power commented, “The first UK residential installation of SimpliPhi Power ESS was completed in the home of an environmentally conscious customer in Winchester, UK this week by our parent company, Solar PV Partners. We researched the energy storage market to find the highest performing, longest life and safest Lithium battery made today and identified SimpliPhi Power as the ideal solution. We are very proud to be their partner in the UK and have already had very high demand for SimpliPhi energy storage systems in universities and commercial properties, as well as in residential.

“This is an exciting project for ESS and helps demonstrate Euro Tunnel’s commitment to the environment through use of renewable energy,” said ESS Director Bill Roberts. “The installation of solar PV and sodium ion batteries at the EURO TUNNEL site is supplying clean renewable energy to the new welcome sign at the M20 entrance. Aquion Energy Storage is completely non-toxic, contains no heavy metals, is non-flammable and a genuinely sustainable alternative to lead acid battery and lithium ion technologies. The ability to fully discharge the Aquion system to 100% was a key factor in our choice of batteries and the environmental credentials of the Aquion technology was an important consideration for the client”.
Solar PV Partners is an innovative renewable energy resource management group of partner companies. Solar PV Partners became the first UK/European dealer of Aquion Energy storage systems in April of 2015.
Solar PV Partners Limited, the UK renewable energy resource management company, today announced the first UK/European combined solar and wind installation with a 25 kWh Aquion Energy battery system at Upperlands Farm in Northern Ireland, UK.
Dennis Garrison, Managing Director of Solar PV Partners Ltd, a UK/European dealer of Aquion Energy storage systems, said: “We are delighted to work with Wattstor, an innovative renewable energy installation company on the first Aquion Energy system installed in the UK and Europe for storing both solar and wind power. John Henderson of Henbo Energy had the vision to combine storage from two renewable energy sources at his Upperland Farm in Northern Ireland and decided on award-winning Aquion Energy batteries, combined with a Wattstor installation as the right solution”.
The renewable energy storage market is projected to grow at phenomenal rates over the next decade and Aquion Energy is delivering batteries that provide an unmatched combination of safety, sustainability, long life and robust performance. Chancellor George Osborne supports the storage industry and recently stated that, “The UK must take a global lead in developing low carbon technologies, including electricity storage”, further saying 10,000 jobs could be created by generating 2,000 megawatts of storage by 2020.
“This is an exciting time for both Wattstor and energy storage generally,” said Wattstor Director Michael Danes. “The installation of sodium ion batteries is proof of our commitment to identifying and supplying renewable energy storage systems that are sustainable whilst also being economically viable. Providing batteries that offer strong performance, are safe and sustainable, and also offer a potential life span of fifteen years will remove the ethical dilemma posed by some of the more commonly available but less environmentally-friendly battery chemistries currently on the market”.
“In a sector that has seen a great deal of publicity about lithium ion and lead acid products, the arrival of a battery suitable for large domestic, small commercial, and agricultural customers that is completely non-toxic, contains no heavy metals, is non-flammable and non-acidic, presents renewable enthusiasts with a genuinely sustainable alternative to existing battery technologies”.
Solar PV Partners is an innovative renewable energy resource management group of partner companies, having recently facilitated finance and delivery of the largest school/college/university installation of Solar PV in the UK for Sparsholt College.

Jay Whitacre, Ph.D., a Materials Scientist and Professor at Carnegie Mellon University’s College of Engineering, is the recipient of the 2015 $500,000 Lemelson-MIT Prize. Whitacre is the inventor of the Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI™) battery, a reliable, environmentally-benign and cost-efficient energy storage system. This first-of-its-kind battery, often used in combination with solar and wind energy systems, stores significant amounts of energy at a low cost per joule and allows for around-the-clock consumption. Whitacre’s AHI™ battery, developed using abundant and inexpensive resources including water, sodium and carbon, can help reduce dependence on fossil fuels and make sustainable energy a viable alternative. The company that Whitacre founded, Aquion Energy, has fully scaled manufacturing and commercialized the battery with global distribution channels and installations in many locations including Australia, California, Germany, Hawaii, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
