ZINC8 ENERGY SOLUTIONS ANNOUNCES UPDATE TO COMMERCIALIZATION MILESTONE AGREEMENT FOR '75 HOUSE' IN SURREY BRITISH COLUMBIA
Deployment of Zinc8 Energy Solutions Inc.'s zinc-air energy storage system at an innovative, low-energy-footprint estate in Surrey, B.C., is set to be delivered on time by Dec. 21, 2020.
The capacity of the energy storage system to be installed by Zinc8 is presently configured to be 20 kilowatts and 80 kilowatt-hours, but the flexibility of the Zinc8 system enables it to be easily modified to meet any change in demand. The system will be integrated with an on-site solar array to provide the main source of power to the estate.
The residence known as 75 House, presently under construction on the estate, includes many features that make it architecturally unique and energy efficient. Designed by renowned architect Omer Arbel, the construction of the residence uses the technique of pouring concrete into fabric formwork deployed within minimal plywood rib structures, yielding walls and columnar roof forms. The design was selected to the short list of entries at the World Architecture Festival held in Amsterdam in December, 2019.
"The ability to deliver our zinc-air energy storage system on time to the 75 House construction project reinforces our commitment to becoming a leader in the deployment of long-duration energy storage and is a testament to the hard work by the Zinc8 team. This is an important milestone as Zinc8 Energy Solutions moves forward to its planned commercial production in early 2023," said Zinc8 Energy Solutions president and chief executive officer Ron MacDonald.
The Zinc8 storage system is a modular system designed to deliver power in the range of 20 kW to one megawatt or more and energy in the range of 160 kWh to eight megawatt-hours or more. With the advantage of rechargeable zinc-air battery technology, the system can be configured to support a wide range of discharge power, recharge power and duty cycle requirements. Since the energy storage capacity of the Zinc8 system is determined only by the size of the zinc storage tank, a very cost-effective and scalable solution now exists as an alternative to the fixed power/energy ratio of the lithium-ion and other energy storage technologies (including other zinc-air competitors) for users requiring high storage capacity.
