ZBB Energy Provides Energy Management System For Off-Grid Project In Cayman Islands

Developer of innovative energy management solutions, ZBB Energy Corporation, has signed a contract to provide an advanced energy management and storage system for the largest off-grid renewable energy installation.

The complex is located in the Cayman islands within the Carribean, housed within the Cayman Technology Centre (CTC), a 38,000 square foot commercial property.

It includes 10 flow batteries of 50kWh capacity (ZBB’s EnerStore V3.3 ZnBr), a ZBB EnerSection energy management system, a 380kW PV installation and an 800kW diesel generator. Thus, it is developed to be “self-sustaining”, operating independently of the utility grid.

Expensive electricity rates and challenged grid energy supply in the Caribbean is expected to significantly expand the market for micro-grid systems in the region. ZBB believes that the trend towards grid defection and off-grid, self-sustaining commercial projects will continue in the coming years.
