URL More about RedFlow 300 kW Adelaide
Australian battery developer Redflow has sold a commercial-scale model of its zinc bromide flow energy storage system to Base64 who will couple it with an existing solar system on a renovated office complex in Adelaide, as part of longer term plans to take the office off-grid. The battery system is contained in 20 foot (6m) box that will accommodate 60 ZBM3 battery modules providing up to 300kW and 660kWh of energy with a voltage output between 400V and 800V DC. Delivery and installation is expected in June 2015. Redflow said in a statement the system is scaleable and can be placed in series and/or parallel and powered from renewable energy sources such as solar. Base64 will use the $1 million storage system to store energy from its existing 20kW array of solar panels. Hackett says the system will allow a significant reduction in consumption from the grid, particularly in peak periods, and act as a back-up in power failures.
