Eguana Technologies (EGT:TSXV) was the best-performing stock in January’s Stock Challenge Thursday. The company’s shares soared 40% higher on over 3.5 million shares traded to close at $0.33 per share.

The rally came after the company announced:

Bosch collaborates with Eguana on Home Battery System for Cybersecure Predictive Energy Efficiency and Demand Response


The Bosch Group is a leading global supplier of technology and services. As one of the world’s largest companies, employed roughly 375,000 associates as of December 31, 2015. The company generated sales of $78.3 billion (70.6 billion euros) in 2015.

For Eguana Technologies, a technology leader in power conversion and control systems for distributed energy storage company with an approximate $66 million market cap, to be entering into a collaboration with Bosch is a big deal. The two companies will be collaborating on the Home Battery System (HBS) project.

Eguana Technologies reports:

“This project demonstrates reduction of peak loads in the home using a utility-controlled storage system to lower demand from the utility and reduce the burden on the grid. The project is being completed in co-operation with the Bonneville Power Authority (BPA) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The system is currently being validated under the supervision of NREL at its Energy Systems Integration Facility in Golden, CO. Cybersecurity is a critical element of the Home Battery System. With the guidance and support of the cybersecurity experts at ESCRYPT, the Home Battery System employs Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) standards to ensure a compliant stack.”


Scott Averitt, technical expert – advanced R&D projects, Robert Bosch North America, explained,


“We chose the Eguana AC Battery for this project due to the ease of integration with the Home Battery System and the ability to scale the amount of energy storage,”


And that,


“These factors allow us to validate various scenarios regarding available on-demand power and on-site storage capacity.”

Eguana is not new in the Pinnacle community. We have written about the company in the past and Eguana was the source of a close contest back in June of 2016.

Below is an excerpt from Eguana Technologies: power in energy storage:


“Long-time member, sitting in 11th place and past Stock Challenge Champ ‘Frank Tabbert’ selected the company along with 14th place ‘frebeach’, 16th place ‘supra’ and 17th place ‘danno13’.

Only one of these members shared the potential Eguana had back in December of 2015. On December 20th, 2015, Frank Tabbert posted a blog titled Getting in the GOING GREEN GAME EARLY Eguana Technologies Inc.. EGT/V. Below is an excerpt from the bottom of his post:

“Building a better battery is only part of the solution. What then? STORING POWER WHEN THE SUN IS SHINING to be utizilzed when it is not is the key here. The leader in this field still in its early stages is a little Canadian Company called Eguana Technologies Inc. EGT/V trading at 10 cents. The GREEN REVOLUTION is in its infancy and this infant has eye popping risk/reward potential.”

Congrats Frank!

This is why the Pinnacle community exists; to share and present opportunities to our fellow members.”
