ZBB Energy Corporation, an emerging provider of energy storage systems, announced today that its executives have been chosen to present to the Clean Equity Monaco - Emerging Environmental Technology Conference, February 20-21.
ZBB CEO Rob Parry will make the presentation along with Kevin Dennis, VP Marketing and Sales. The Monaco conference is designed to allow “green” investors and worldwide energy officials to meet with companies whose technologies are designed to be environmentally beneficial. Fund managers from throughout the world are also expected to attend the conference which is being held conjunctionally with the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP). Up to 100 environmental ministers from UN member countries are expected to be in attendance.
ZBB’s zinc bromine energy storage system represents a clean, green, environmentally friendly alternative energy source that saves money for utilities, companies and consumers. It can store energy from any prime generating source such as wind, solar or conventional grid power and hold that charge for delivery and use at a later time. Parry said the presentation at the Monaco conference will enhance ZBB’s image as a leader in green energy storage technology.
“This is an exciting opportunity to present our energy storage technology to a world-wide audience,” Parry said. “This is a conference centered on ‘green’ technology, and our zinc bromine battery is truly a green product that not only supports renewable energy, but saves money for companies and utilities.”
The ZBB system has highly practical uses for utility companies and companies using traditional or alternative energy sources because of its versatility and ability to reduce peak loads by shifting energy from one time period to another. The product is ideally suited to applications that require deep discharge and long cycle life.
ZBB has recently installed zinc bromine batteries for Pacific Gas & Electric in California and is contracted to install its systems in the CSIRO Energy Centre in Newcastle, Australia. It is now working on extending its marketing to the US electric utilities and to commercial and industrial markets.
