Zen Gets A $200,000 Grant For Energy Storage Development

ZEN, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, relocated to Tonsley in July, where it has set up a manufacturing hub.

ZEN Chief Executive Officer Richard Turner said the energy industry was going through a revolution and energy storage was right in the driver’s seat.

“Our energy storage system represents the leading edge of technology development in the industry globally and we’re doing it here in South Australia,” said Mr Turner.

“We are at the forefront of technology to create renewable energy solutions and change the way residential and business consumers capture solar energy.

ZEN says its Freedom Powerbank allows consumers the opportunity to switch off their dependence on the electricity grid and generate all their own power. It has the capability to store energy generated by solar and wind power or capture off-peak power for later use.

“We aim to make South Australia a world leader in energy storage systems,” Turner said.
