Sony Corporation and Hydro-Quebec Announces Establishment of Esstalion Technologies, Inc

Esstalion Technologies Inc. has been newly established by Sony Corporation and Hydro-Quebec as a business venture to research and develop large-scale energy storage systems for power grids. Esstalion Technologies Inc. will utilize Sony's control technologies for highly safe, reliable, olivine-type lithium-ion iron phosphate rechargeable batteries and highly scalable module systems, together with Hydro-Quebec's operation and control technologies for electric power supplies as well as its lithium-ion battery material technology. By combining these strengths and performing the activities at a common location, the new company intends to research and develop a highly safe and reliable system for large-scale applications, as well as battery material technology suitable for use within electric power systems, and explore their use in a wide variety of applications, such as meeting excess demand during peak times, and the integrating renewable energy sources into power grids. The "Esstalion" portion of the new company's name ("Esstalion Technologies Inc.") is a hybrid term that combines "ESS" (for Energy Storage Systems), "Station" (as a venue for energy management), and "Lithium-ion," and represents energy storage systems for power grids that use lithium-ion battery technologies, the subject of the joint venture company's research and development.
