ZincFive, the world leader in nickel-zinc (NiZn) battery-based solutions for immediate power applications, announced that they are expanding their presence in the electric vehicle (EV) charging and microgrid markets through their collaborations with Kaizen Clean Energy (KCE) and Advanced Power & Energy (AP&E).
ZincFive’s battery cabinet-based building block uniquely offers immediate high-power performance of up to 10C continuous discharge with no risk of thermal runaway. In addition, it is one of the lowest carbon footprint batteries with industry-leading metal material recovery recycling. Combined, it provides an attractive building block for applications in urban and industrial environments where volatile battery chemistries are prohibited or where space constraints make large footprint systems impractical.
“ZincFive’s unwavering commitment to innovation shines through in our product solutions, powered by our cutting-edge, safe, and dependable nickel-zinc battery technology,” said ZincFive CEO and Co-Founder Tim Hysell. “We are excited to provide our partners and customers with immediate power solutions that address the escalating demand for reliable, clean, and affordable power to support the rapid growth of EV charging.”
Kaizen Clean Energy (KCE), a leader in hydrogen-based microgrids, has developed an industry-first integrated distributed energy solution for EV charging, hydrogen fueling, and backup power for the grid and critical assets, including data centers. KCE’s integrated solution comprises its commercially proven hydrogen generator, ZincFive’s immediate power nickel-zinc batteries, and fuel cells from PowerCell, a global supplier of fuel cell stacks and systems for stationary and mobile applications, to offer customers modular, scalable, sustainable, and economic hydrogen fueling and EV charging.
“ZincFive and KCE have collaborated closely to develop a microgrid solution that delivers exceptional value to our customers,” said KCE Co-Founder Robert Meaney. “Leveraging ZincFive’s expertise in battery technology integrations, we have accelerated our learning cycles and streamlined our path to market. We are excited to commission our first system with our customer Zeem during the month of May.”
Advanced Power & Energy (AP&E) is developing a portfolio of power products designed for commercial and industrial applications that support and enable EV DC fast charging, behind the meter renewables and industrial starter applications using a tool-kit approach to site upgrades, installation, and futureproofing. The company will be pilot commissioning its first ZincFive immediate power solution DC fast charging in Pennsylvania in May.
“We have worked closely with ZincFive to develop a unique set of products that offer turn-key immediate power battery solutions for commercial and industrial applications, including EV charging,” said George Bulick, Co-Founder and President of Advanced Power & Energy. “We look forward to commissioning our first public DC fast charging site with our customer in May 2023.”
