Altair Nanotechnologies Inc. won a contract with the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute (HNEI) of the University of Hawaii at Manoa to supply a 2-MW ALTI-ESS Advantage energy storage system for a grid stability demonstration project.

HNEI selected Altairnano and the ALTI-ESS Advantage after two prior energy storage system purchases focused on renewable energy integration. The ALTI-ESS Advantage supplies 2 MW of power and 397 kWh of energy as part of a new product offering that has a 25 percent smaller footprint and lower cost per MW than the product it replaced.

The research project, funded through a grant from the Office of Naval Research, will help validate the performance characteristics of the ALTI-ESS Advantage and demonstrate the effectiveness of energy storage to integrate solar photovoltaic power generation into the electric grid.

The Office of Naval Research is providing funding for the project through a grant to the University of Hawaii. Projects that support the Department of Navy's energy programs to demonstrate technologies that enable increased implementation of alternative energy sources and promote energy security was made possible by the efforts of the late Senator Daniel K. Inouye, Senate Appropriations Chairman, to ensure that the Department of Defense has adequate resources to make these critical, cutting-edge investments in energy technology.
