Intersolar 2014 - ViZn Energy Systems Wins Intersolar Europe's 2014 Electrical Energy Storage Award

World's Largest Exhibition for Solar Industry Recognizes ViZn for Innovative Z20 Energy Storage System

Columbia Falls, MT – June 9, 2014 – Today ViZn Energy Systems, Inc., a pioneer in large-scale energy storage technology, announces it has been selected as a winner of the 2014 Intersolar Europe Electrical Energy Storage (ees) Award for their Z20 energy storage system.

3,500 companies from all international Intersolar exhibitions and the electrical energy storage (ees) exhibition were invited to participate in the 2014 awards which were presented live on June 6, 2014 at Intersolar Europe in Munich. Making its official debut this year, the ees Award honors outstanding products and solutions in the fields of materials, production, systems technology, applications, second-use concepts and recycling. Judges select the recipients based on the degree of technological innovation, economic viability and benefit their solutions bring to the industry and environment.

ViZn's Zinc Redox Flow Battery is one of the most cost-effective, scalable and safe energy flow batteries on the market. Energy storage is now one of the greatest challenges faced by the energy transition. With systems already in the field for testing, ViZn's patented technology is positioned to break the cost/benefit threshold that has limited widespread adoption.

"The jury was impressed by the well-designed, ecological prototypes, which avoid the use of dangerous substances in storage systems," said the judges in an official statement. "The use of cost-efficient raw materials translates to the potential for considerable cost reductions, particularly in comparison with today's vanadium redox-flow technology – another reason why the product was honored with the ees AWARD."

"After years of research, adaptation and testing, ViZn's technology is ready to make the energy market more efficient for microgrids," said Ron Van Dell, CEO of ViZn Energy Systems. "We'd like to thank the Intersolar committee and jury for this award and for recognizing a product that will have a positive impact on our industry and the environment."

Featured Product



You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
