Milwaukee, November 12, 2010 – ZBB Energy Corp. received a purchase order and executed a letter of intent with Sunflower Wind for the purchase of multiple units of ZBB’s ZESS POWR PECC (Power and Energy Control Center) integrated with ZBB’s ZESS 50 zinc bromide advanced energy storage.
ZBB‘s technology offers Sunflower the ability to integrate multiple power inputs with their 100 KW (Model SW100B) wind turbine to provide backup power and load balancing in a variety of diverse applications.
The ZESS POWR PECC is a hybrid power system that converts any combination of wind, solar, hydro or other generating sources to independently optimize the control of each generating source while providing a ‘steady-state’ power output to electrical loads or directly to the grid.
The ZESS 50 technology is a zinc-bromide flow battery designed to serve as an advanced electrical energy storage device, and is constructed from environmentally-friendly materials that provide for a long service life and advanced performance when compared with traditional chemical batteries.
ZBB’s modular, configurable and scalable approach allows for Sunflower to quickly and efficiently integrate multiple power inputs, renewable and conventional, with their wind turbine technology.
ZBB serves a variety of global markets, including the U.S. Department of Defense through its various relationships with major defense contractors, as well as commercial, industrial, wireless telecom and utility. The company has a 75,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Menomonee Falls, as well as research and development offices in Perth, Australia.
