ZBB Energy receives order for Grid Independent ZBB EnerSystem from UTS

Jan 16, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- ZBB Energy Corporation, a developer of intelligent power and energy management technologies, has received an order for a Grid Independent ZBB EnerSystem with its ZBB EnerStore Zinc Bromide flow batteries to provide an integrated Microgrid Energy Management System to the University of Technology Sydney, or UTS, to serve as a permanent power source, demonstration unit and learning platform in the newly constructed Broadway Building.

The ZBB EnerSystem includes the ZBB EnerSection Power and Energy Control Units, local/remote Human Machine Interface (HMI), and ZBB EnerStore Zinc Bromide flow batteries.

The ZBB EnerSection provides a completely integrated energy management platform ready for interconnection to a range of configurable energy sources including onsite photovoltaic (PV), wind turbine, fuel cell and an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbine. This system will be used for load management providing continuous power and energy regulation of different sources independent from the utility grid.

"We developed the specification for the ZBB EnerSystem to be installed as a permanent, zero-carbon demonstration platform within the building power scheme. This installation is meant to showcase and use multiple types of renewable energy generation units for the University's Broadway Building to offset the use of the utility grid right in the middle of the city, while emitting no carbon outputs," said Ray Clout, UTS - Research Laboratories Manager.

"This commercial building microgrid application is another example of how ZBB Energy can optimize grid independent power flows across our standard integration platform leveraging multiple generation sources," said Eric Apfelbach, President and CEO of ZBB Energy.

"With its open architecture, the ZBB EnerSection gives customers the flexibility to interconnect and prioritize their available energy resources with a quickly deployed platform that transforms & integrates multiple, uncontrolled power flows into economical, clean and reliable power systems."
