About Redflow

Redflow Limited, a publicly-listed Australian company (ASX: RFX), produces small 10kWh zinc-bromine flow batteries that tolerate daily hard work in harsh conditions. Redflow batteries are designed for high cycle-rate, long time-base stationary energy storage applications in the telecommunications, commercial & industrial and high-end residential sectors, and are scalable from a single battery installation through to grid-scale deployments. Redflow batteries are sold, installed and maintained by an international network of energy system integrators. Redflow’s smart, self-protecting batteries offer unique advantages including secure remote management, 100 per cent daily depth of discharge, tolerance of high ambient temperatures, a simple recycling path, no propensity for thermal runaway and sustained energy delivery throughout their operating life.

The outdoor-rated enclosure, which measures around 1000mm long, 500 mm wide and 1150 mm high, holds Redflow’s unique 10 kilowatt hour (kWh) ZBM2 flow battery,

Designed to be easy for installers to deploy, one or more ZCell units are typically installed on the ground beside an outdoor wall and connected to appropriate battery inverter/charger equipment.

Redflow Executive Chairman Simon Hackett, who will speak at an opening session of the Australian Energy Storage Conference, said the ZCell enclosure was designed and is being manufactured in Australia. “This is the first time we have shown our ZCell enclosure publicly,” he said.

Designed to simplify battery installation, control, maintenance and monitoring, the Redflow BMS tracks real-time battery performance and energy storage levels for system installers and battery owners. It allows local and remote monitoring, data logging and management over any available Internet connection.

Redflow will bundle the BMS with its recently announced ZCell residential product and will also supply it for use in commercial, telecoms and grid-scale deployments.

Redflow Executive Chairman Simon Hackett said the BMS would make the sophisticated Redflow batteries easy to install, control, manage and monitor. “This BMS is a key part of our vision of providing efficient and effective battery energy storage systems for both homes and businesses,” he said.

Base64’s LSB (Large Scale Battery) contains 60 ZBM flow batteries in a 20ft shipping container form-factor, which can deliver 660 kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy in a full discharge cycle. The LSB can be charged from solar and store more than four days of the typical energy requirements of the 2777-square-metre Kent Town property - a multi-tenanted facility routinely occupied by more than 50 people - significantly reducing Base64’s need for grid energy and associated carbon emissions.

Mr. Hackett, who is Executive Chairman of Redflow Limited (ASX:RFX), said the LSB would store energy harvested from Base64’s existing array of 80 PV solar panels. “It will provide us with an enormous degree of energy independence,” he said.
