ViZn Energy Systems Recognized with Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award for Energy Storage

Coveted Frost & Sullivan Award Latest in Series of Wins for Global Flow Battery Company

Columbia Falls, MT – Aug 19, 2014 – Today ViZn Energy Systems, Inc., a pioneer in large-scale energy storage technology, announces it has been selected as a recipient of Frost & Sullivan's Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award in the Energy Storage Industry category for 2014.


"The growing concern over environmentally friendly solutions has contributed significantly to the increasing demand for green technologies, fueling the need for renewable energy," said Vishal Sapru, Research Manager at Frost & Sullivan. "Solutions like ViZn Energy Systems' that are efficient, cost-effective, and proficient in optimum energy storage with minimal energy loss are quite essential."

After a team of Frost & Sullivan analysts and industry experts evaluated the top energy storage companies, ViZn was found to be superior in two critical areas: Customer Value Excellence and Entrepreneurial Spirit. "We were searching for companies that not only had a vision for a high-quality customer experience, but used those insights to achieve growth above the industry average," added Sapru. "For this reason, we have evaluated ViZn Energy Systems as potentially being a strong competitor in the high-growth energy storage industry."

ViZn's Zinc Redox Flow Battery is one of the most cost-effective, scalable and safe energy flow batteries on the market. 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.

"We are honored to be singled out for our product value and strong entrepreneurial spirit that set us apart in the storage segment," said Ron Van Dell, CEO of ViZn Energy Systems. "We'd like to thank Frost & Sullivan for this award and for recognizing the visionary leadership and best-in-class influence ViZn Energy will have on our industry and the environment."
