Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award

Energy storage company ViZn Energy has won the Frost & Sullivan Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award in the Energy Storage Industry category for 2014.

According to the Frost & Sullivan team, US-based ViZn Energy has been selected, because the company showed “customer value excellence” and “entrepreneurial spirit”.

ViZn Energy developed a zinc-iron redox flow battery for energy storage systems. ViZn Energy’s battery packs are mainly attached to microgrids and are designed to last two to four hours.

“The growing concern over environmentally friendly solutions has contributed significantly to the increasing demand for green technologies, fueling the need for renewable energy,” said Vishal Sapru, research manager at consulting firm Frost & Sullivan.

ViZn Energy recently won the Intersolar Europe’s 2014 Electrical Energy Storage Award.

The research for its flow battery was funded by the US Department of Energy. The company has plans to expand its manufacturing capacity at its facility in Montana, US and aims to produce in Europe and is seeking for investors.

Z20 energy storage system

ViZn Energy Systems has been selected as the winner of Intersolar Europe’s 2014 Electrical Energy Storage (ees) Award for its Z20 energy storage system.

The Z20 is an 80kW system, including a redox flow battery, housed in a 20ft shipping container. The technology is targeted for commercial applications from 160kWh and currently in the field for testing.

“The jury was impressed by the well-designed, ecological prototypes, which avoid the use of dangerous substances in storage systems,” said the ees judges in an official statement. “The use of cost-efficient raw materials translates to the potential for considerable cost reductions, particularly in comparison with today’s vanadium redox-flow technology.”

“After years of research, adaptation and testing, ViZn’s technology is ready to make the energy market more efficient for microgrids,” said Ron Van Dell, CEO of ViZn Energy Systems.

The ees Award made its debut this year and honours technical innovation, economic viability and solutions that bring benefits to the industry and environment. Intersolar Europe is the world’s largest exhibition for the solar industry and partners.

ViZn Energy Systems launches 160 kWh zinc redox flow battery for micro-grid market

Wed, 09/18/2013 - 09:24 -- Editor

US firm ViZn Energy Systems (formerly Zinc Air) has commenced manufacturing of its zinc redox flow battery for customer pre-orders in the US and Europe.

Montana-based ViZn’s Z20 160 kWh zinc redox flow battery is aimed at the growing micro-grid markets and renewable integration. With more than fifteen years of research and product development cycles behind it, ViZn’s patented flow-battery technology claims it is capable of 10,000 cycles and a 20-year lifespan.

Delivering a 1MW/2.5MWh battery system at lower pricing than current competition allows for more rapid industry adoption, wider commercial acceptance, and greater reduction of fossil fuel carbon emissions, it says.

ViZn is taking orders for the Z20 now with volume manufacturing ramping up in Q2 of 2014.
