      ZBB Energy Announces Agile Hybrid Series Energy Storage for Commercial and Industrial Building Market

      ZBB Energy Corporation, a leading developer of innovative energy management systems solutions serving the utility and commercial and industrial (C&I) building markets, today announced the introduction of the Agile Hybrid Series, the first energy storage system optimized specifically for high performance, safety, longevity and ability to deliver both power and energy for all available behind-the-meter applications in commercial, industrial, multi-tenant and resort buildings. Such buildings may have 10 or more different applications for energy storage, ranging from very short UPS type applications lasting seconds or minutes, to "rate or demand shift" type applications lasting several hours and backup applications for longer term outages. To perform all of these applications requires a storage system with versatility. The frequency at which the battery is discharged can range from numerous short cycles per day for applications such as frequency regulation or renewables firming, to a single extended cycle during the day as required for "smart export" or "peak shaving".
