Emera and Novonix Partner on Innovative Battery Technology
Emera Technologies launched its microgrid power and battery business, BlockEnergy (https://blockenergy.com/), in 2020 as the first utility-owned community microgrid platform. Emera Technologies is a subsidiary of Emera Inc. (TSE:EMA), a multinational energy holding company based in Nova Scotia with more than CA$32 billion in assets in 2019.
The Emera Technologies and Novonix teams have been working to develop a battery pack including innovative designs, custom manufacturing and control systems to support the BlockEnergy microgrid requirements.
"The BlockEnergy project is a great example of applying our technology to real life projects and developing systems with specifications not available currently in commercial products, and that have tangible downstream applications," said Dr. Chris Burns, co-founder and Chief Executive of Novonix.
"This project brings the opportunity to partner on not only the development but also manufacturing of new battery systems with significant market opportunities. The target market is not limited to the United States but will also include a focus on opportunities and customers here in Canada," said Dr. Burns.
