ViZn Energy Systems, which specializes in zinc + iron flow batteries, is partnering with The Ryan Company (an electrical EPC firm) to bust open a path in the solar PV + battery storage integration market for utility- and commercial-scale clients.

VIZN_2_CombinedConsidering that the solar PV + energy storage market is projected to grow exponentially over the coming years, the move makes quite a lot of sense. Projections from Bloomberg New Energy Finance are that the sector will receive $250 billion of total investment by the year 2040.

“The Ryan Company has a deep background in both solar EPC integration and complex electrical infrastructure improvements across the United States,” stated David Mintzer, Vice President of Business Development at ViZn Energy. “We seek partners who are first class EPCs and have the engineering expertise to integrate our zinc redox flow batteries into multifaceted projects where our system will be expected to perform stacked applications and deliver significant ROI over its 20-year lifespan.”

The press release provides some information on that background: “The Ryan Company, a wholly owned Quanta Services subsidiary, is a top-tier electrical EPC company with over 700 MW (megawatts) of installed solar projects and numerous references in the electrical infrastructure space including: frequency regulation, substation/transformer installation, and public-sector electrical upgrades.”

As some background on ViZn Energy, the company’s flow battery system possesses an expected working lifespan of 20 years, is capable of fulfilling both high-power and long-duration duties, reportedly possesses relatively low operation and maintenance costs, and reportedly don’t suffer from capacity wear. The battery systems can also be discharged completely without degrading the battery.
