The outdoor-rated enclosure, which measures around 1000mm long, 500 mm wide and 1150 mm high, holds Redflow’s 10 kilowatt hour (kWh) ZBM2 flow battery.
Redflow executive chairman Simon Hackett, speaking at an opening session of the Australian Energy Storage Conference in Sydney, said the ZCell enclosure was designed and manufactured in Australia.
“This is the first time we have shown our ZCell enclosure publicly. We’re very pleased with the design, which is both attractive and practical, that allows straightforward outdoor installation, and features a built-in secondary containment system to protect against the unlikely event of an electrolyte fluid leak.
According to Hackett, ZCell is a breakthrough residential energy storage system that includes a battery made from easily recyclable or reusable components.
Hackett said ZCell’s 10 kWh of stored energy allows people to ‘timeshift’ solar power from day to night, store off-peak power for peak demand periods and support off-grid systems.
