ZincFive Expands Its Presence in EV Charging and Microgrid Markets Through Strategic Collaborations

What’s Happening

ZincFive, the global frontrunner in nickel-zinc (NiZn) battery-based energy solutions, has announced an expansion into the electric vehicle (EV) charging and microgrid sectors. This significant growth is facilitated by the company’s strategic collaborations with industry leaders, Kaizen Clean Energy (KCE) and Advanced Power & Energy (AP&E).

Why It Matters

ZincFive’s battery cabinet-based building block distinctly provides immediate high-power performance, capable of a continuous discharge of up to 10C, without any thermal runaway risk. Furthermore, it stands out as one of the eco-friendliest batteries available today, owing to its industry-leading metal material recovery recycling capabilities. This battery solution becomes a particularly attractive choice for urban and industrial applications where volatile battery chemistries are discouraged or where space constraints make larger systems unworkable.

Key Points

ZincFive CEO and Co-Founder, Tim Hysell, emphasized the company’s firm commitment to innovation and its reliance on safe, reliable nickel-zinc battery technology to power their product solutions. He expressed enthusiasm in offering immediate power solutions to partners and customers in a bid to meet the rising demand for dependable, clean, and affordable power, a requisite for the burgeoning EV charging market.

In this collaborative venture, KCE, a renowned figure in the hydrogen-based microgrids space, has innovated an industry-first integrated distributed energy solution. This integrated solution consists of a proven hydrogen generator by KCE, ZincFive’s immediate power nickel-zinc batteries, and fuel cells provided by PowerCell. Together, they present customers with a modular, scalable, sustainable, and economical solution for hydrogen fueling and EV charging.

Robert Meaney, KCE Co-Founder, applauded the collaboration between ZincFive and KCE, noting how it has expedited learning cycles and smoothed the path to market. The first system commissioning with their customer Zeem is expected in May.

On the other hand, AP&E is working on a suite of power products suitable for commercial and industrial applications. These products aim to facilitate EV DC fast charging and industrial starter applications. AP&E plans to commission its first ZincFive immediate power solution DC fast charging in Pennsylvania in May.

Bottom Line

ZincFive’s ambitious expansion, backed by strategic partnerships, is poised to revolutionize the EV charging and microgrid sectors. With an unwavering commitment to innovation and a focus on providing clean, reliable, and affordable power solutions, ZincFive is set to redefine the norms in a rapidly growing energy market. This venture heralds an exciting phase for EV charging and microgrid technology, with a key emphasis on sustainability and adaptability.
