The company was awarded the contract to supply the technology for use by a multi-university team of researchers conducting renewable energy studies for the Wisconsin Energy Research Consortium (WERC).

The first phase of the WERC project will study individual wind turbines, and these results will be applied in a phase two study to remodel an entire wind farm system to improve reliability and put wind farms on equal footing with conventional fuel sources.

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 the electrical loads or directly to the grid.

ZBB provides distributed intelligent power management platforms that directly integrate multiple renewable and conventional onsite generation sources with rechargeable zinc bromide flow batteries and other storage technology.
