ZBB Energy Corporation develops and manufactures distributed energy storage solutions based upon the company’s proprietary zinc bromide rechargeable electrical energy storage technology and proprietary power electronics systems. The company’s electrical power management platforms target the improving global need for distributed renewable energy, energy efficiency, power quality, and grid modernization. The company has developed a portfolio of intelligent power management platforms that directly integrate multiple renewable and conventional onsite generation sources with rechargeable zinc bromide flow batteries and other storage technology. The company also offers systems to directly connect wind and solar equipment to the grid and systems that could form various levels of micro-grids, hybrid vehicle control systems, and power quality regulation solutions. Together, these platforms provide a range of renewable energy system solutions in global markets for utility, governmental, commercial, industrial, and residential customers. Products The company’s products are also used in remote micro grid applications worldwide. Advanced Energy Storage ZBB EnerStore flow batteries are modular and scalable, self-contained and front accessible – making them ideal for distributed energy projects whether on or off the grid. The ZBB EnerStore captures multiple value streams, including time shifting, firming of renewables, load management, and system backup. Power Electronic Systems The ZBB EnerSection power and energy control center provides a firm, dispatchable, renewable, and back-up power plant for everyday energy management and emergency operations. Its configurable architecture integrates multiple AC and DC power generation sources together with one or various types of energy storage units combined with any blend of utility grid-tie inverters, inverters for off-grid AC power, and/or DC outputs to provide DC power. Integrated Power Management Platform and Energy Storage The ZBB EnerSystem integrated energy management platform combines the power and energy controls of its ZBB EnerSection and energy storage with its ZBB EnerStore battery, or a hybrid of various energy storage technologies, to optimize local, renewable energy resources and other power inputs from any source. ZBB Platforms The company’s energy storage and power control platforms are used in Grid Interactive, Grid Independent, and Grid Conversion environments for various applications across various markets, both in the United States and internationally. Grid Interactive (Grid-Tied): When connected to a stable grid, the ZBB EnerSystem could be used as a bi-directional, hybrid conversion platform, integrating multiple renewable and/or conventional power sources with energy storage. It provides for steady state output, emergency power supply and/or arbitrage pricing schemes to and from the utility supply. Grid Independent (Off Grid): The ZBB EnerSystem supports the integration of any combination of on-site power generating sources — creating a microgrid. Grid Conversion (Grid as Input): When energy is inconsistent, the company’s platform allows the grid to be used as a one way input to provide continuous power flows from connected resources – improving overall power availability. Target Markets The primary users of the company’s energy storage systems are expected to be utility companies at the distribution level, commercial/industrial users, and remote off-grid applications. Collaborations In January 2013, the company announced that they entered into a strategic relationship with BPC Engineering (Moscow, Russia), www.bpcgroup.ru. This relationship introduces the company’s line of products into the Russian and Commonwealth of Independent States markets. Intellectual Property The company has been issued international patents in various strategic countries, including South Korea, China, Australia, Canada, and Mexico and continues to pursue others for the ZBB EnerSection power and energy control technology U.S. patent. In 2012, the company also filed for the U.S. and international patents on improvements to the ZBB EnerSection. The company uses trademarks on some of its products, and has registered its ZBB EnerStore, ZBB EnerSection, ZBB EnerSystem, and ZBB EnerTower marks in the United States and internationally. History ZBB Energy Corporation was incorporated in Wisconsin in 1998.
