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.
