ZBB Energy designs, develops, and manufactures advanced energy storage, power electronic systems, and engineered custom and semi-custom products targeted at the growing global need for distributed renewable energy, energy efficiency, power quality, and grid modernization.
The company today announced it has shipped a previously reported order from Pacific Beachcomber to supply a 2,000 kilowatt ZBB EnerStore system, including 40 ZBB EnerStore modules. The order went to Pacific Beachcomber’s Brando Resort, a luxury eco-resort located in French Polynesia. Some of the revenue from the sale will be recognized in the company’s Q3/13, with the remainder recognized during Q1/14.
The EnerStore system will be a key component of the resort’s electrical system. Its electrical supply will include a mix of renewable energy sources, including an 896 kilowatt array of photovoltaic panels and generators that use sustainable biofuels made from locally sourced coconut oil. The resort will be fully self-sustaining and is expected to be the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum (the highest rating) certified destination in the world.
This largest island microgrid shipment to date for ZBB Energy demonstrates its leadership position in the microgrid market. ZBB Energy’s technology allows the resort and other customers to minimize the amount of fuel consumed by utilizing generators for back-up purposes only when stored photovoltaic energy is not sufficient enough to meet overnight demand.
