ZincFive supplies battery systems for Advanced Power & Energy’s hydrogen-powered microgrid and pilot DC fast charging station in Greenville, Pennsylvania.
ZincFive, a developer of nickel-zinc battery cells, is entering the electric vehicle and microgrid markets through new partnerships with hydrogen developer Kaizen Clean Energy (KCE) and Advanced Power & Energy, a direct current (DC) fast charging developer. electric cars.
ZincFive uses its 37 kWh to 39 kWh energy storage systems to supply nickel-zinc-based UPS systems for KCE’s hydrogen generator systems that use the PowerCell fuel cell. These systems combine modular hydrogen fuel and EV charging at a single station, serving new clean fuel markets.
The company’s commercial and industrial batteries use nickel-zinc chemistry and potassium hydroxide water-based electrolyte, so they are suitable for use at temperatures of 68-95 degrees.
“ZincFive and KCE have worked closely together to develop a microgrid solution that provides exceptional value to our customers,” said Robert Meaney, KCE founder. “By leveraging ZincFive’s expertise in battery technology integration, we have accelerated our learning cycles and streamlined our path to market. We are excited to deploy our first system with our customer Zeem during May.
ZincFive is also supplying its instant power solution systems to Advanced Power & Energy’s DC fast charging station project located in Greenville, Pennsylvania. My partner develops commercial DC fast charging stations from 120 kW to 4 MW. Three AP&E electrical cabinets using 240 kW ZincFive batteries will be commissioned for the project, Tim Hysell, CEO of ZincFive, said. pv-lehti USA.
“The DC Fast Charge site is located near two electric vehicle corridors designated by the Pennsylvania State Department of Transportation, adjacent to the intersection of Highways 79 and 80,” said George Bulick, president of Advanced Power & Energy. pv-lehti USA.
