ZBB Energy Corporation has provided a 1000kWh / 500kW-rated energy storage system for use in a microgrid application at the San Nicolas Island Naval Facility, located in the Catalina Island group, just west of Los Angeles, California.

Duane Tilden‘s insight:

During the next two years, ZBB’s EnerSystem will be tested and certified to maintain power quality and perform load management for off-peak power produced from the wind turbine and diesel electric power delivery system at the Navy facility on San Nicolas Island. […]

The ZBB EnerSystem will be used continuously in an ongoing operational mode to minimize diesel gen set runtime in favor of power generated from wind turbines and future photovoltaic (PV) arrays on the island. The base’s overall system will focus on the power control for microgrid stability, quality, and load leveling needs on the base. […]

ZBB Energy Corporation designs, develops, and manufactures advanced energy storage, power electronic systems, and engineered custom and semi-custom products targeted at the growing global need for distributed renewable energy, energy efficiency, power quality, and grid modernization. (12/17/12)
