  • ZBB Energy Corp. (ZBB) Energy Storage And Power Control Solutions Continue To Gain Traction In China 3 comments
    Jul 31, 2013 2:34 PM | about stocks: ZBB

    ZBB Energy continues to win favor in the global market for exceptionally well engineered and integrated energy storage and intelligent power control platform technologies, designed to make using renewable sources a cinch, with multiple AC and DC inputs able to be dovetailed together seamlessly.

    We are talking demand-driven power flow and optimized source usage here, with the capacity to operate as a modular, expandable power plant that can even function as an emergency power system during grid outages. The ZBB EnerSystem™ storage and control platform makes it extremely easy to manage a complex array of AC and DC sources, with inputs ranging anywhere from solar and fuel cells, to diesel generator sets. This robust, factory-tested power conversion system is ideal for off-grid solutions like remote communications towers, forward military bases, disaster relief scenarios, and even electric vehicle (EV) charging hubs, but the ZBB EnerSystem also features single point of power connection, making it suitable for a variety of on-grid solutions as well, like in commercial buildings.

    At the core of the ZBB EnerSystem is the ZBB EnerSection™ power and energy control center (a patented hybrid conversion system), which meshes disparate AC and DC sources as well as multiple types of storage units easily. The company even offers an optional Grid Isolation Device that lets the customer isolate the entire system (to or from the grid) when connecting customer loads during outages, allowing for a seamless subsequent reconnect when service comes back up.

    The backbone of storage is the company's ZBB EnerStore® flow battery modules, representing a superb bulk energy storage solution that provides the lowest cost of ownership over a 20-year target lifecycle (per module) and handles advanced tasks like continuous output, load management, and time shifting, all without sacrificing one iota of performance, scalability, or modularity. These ZBB EnerStore units are completely self-contained, front-accessible cabinets that require no additional ventilation, no external power input to fire up, and a completely integrated DC bus that removes the need for onsite wiring of power connections. These incredibly powerful zinc/bromide battery-based systems are perfect for distributed energy applications and offer a whopping seven times expected service life over traditional lead/acid (with five times the energy density of redox flow designs) in typical 100% capacity usage scenarios. Better yet, the ZBB EnerStore units are expandable up to 500kWH in a single enclosure, with up to 6000kWH available if you daisy-chain several enclosures together.

    A recent show of strength by the company as they continue to make inroads in global markets with their renewable-friendly grid modernization hardware can be seen in the recent (July 23) third-party certification of the ZBB EnerStore by the PRC's equivalent of OSHA, NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health), a major coup that paves the way for more sales of ZBB hardware throughout Chinese markets. Extensive ion chromatography done by NIOSH on the ZBB EnerStore advanced flow battery confirms the safety standards inherent in their design and these batteries have some of the best chemical and vapor containment ratings in the entire product class.

    This important certification actually comes in via Meineng Energy (Anhui Meineng Store Energy System Co., Ltd.), a leading provider of energy storage systems and solutions in the PRC with whom ZBB is currently in a joint venture. Meineng Energy GM and CEO, Brad Hansen, commented on the mounting acceptance by customers in China of the ZBB EnerStore, saying that the continued growth in adoptance was tied directly to an outstanding reputation for safety earned by the product.

    Also in increasing demand among the company's growing customer footprint are their designs for innovative hybrid vehicle power controls, made available through a supply agreement with Cummins Crosspoint, LLC subsidiary, Crosspoint Kinetics. Targeted at the domestic Class 4, 5, and 6, small to medium bus market, this ingenious controller technology is designed from the start to be easily adopted and is fully government compliant, perfect for integration or retrofitting in new or existing fleet vehicle). These systems are a real performance and mileage upgrade that also reduces emissions, while simultaneously doing away with any need for batteries, thanks to the use of onboard super capacitors.

    Lol, where do you get your information? Fuel cells aren't used anywhere at this time for backup power.
