AUSTIN, Texas, 26 April 2016– ViZn Energy Systems Inc. (ViZn), a leading provider of energy storage systems for utility, commercial & industrial and microgrid applications, has recently been recognized three times over as a leading innovator in the industry. Energy CIO Insights, the Austin Business Journal and Energy Storage News each have named ViZn – developers of the world’s first cost effective and safe flow battery system – as one of the top cleantech companies.

“We’re honored that three well-respected media outlets singled out ViZn as an industry leader,” said Ron Van Dell, CEO of ViZn Energy Systems. “As we scale with more installations, industry analysts and media continue to recognize the value of a flexible energy storage system that safely and effectively performs a greater mix of applications than other technologies on the market.”

Energy CIO Insights – the leading monthly magazine that focuses on the Energy and Utility Sector – has named ViZn as one of the Top 10 Vendors to Watch in Smart Grid. The list annually recognizes leading innovators and solutions providers developing products that make our power transmission system safer, more reliable and more cost effective.

The Energy Storage 100 is curated by Energy Storage News to acknowledge the storage industry’s most influential businesses that are shaping this rapidly expanding market. Energy Storage News focuses exclusively on the worldwide energy storage market from a business and innovation perspective.

Lastly, The Austin Business Journal (ABJ) annually compiles a list of the top cleantech companies in the tech-centric capital of Austin, Texas. The list is comprised of the leading companies that provide sustainable and clean technologies that reduce the environmental footprint of traditional industry. The ABJ recognized ViZn’s Department of Energy-funded, non-toxic, zinc-iron redox flow batteries for their role in making wide-scale adoption of renewable energy economically viable.

“Many customers, and an increasing number of independent journalists appreciate how our robust and safe system can safely charge and discharge over five times more electricity than the leading lithium-ion alternatives,” said Van Dell.

ViZn’s products are safe and non-toxic so they can be located close to valuable grid infrastructure and in densely populated areas close where people live and work. Compared to competing battery storage products, ViZn’s solutions maintain one of the fastest charge and discharge responses on the market in a design that can facilitate multiple cycles each day. Its flow battery is capable of both high-power and long-duration services, giving it the unique ability to perform a broad range of both front-of-the-meter and behind-the-meter applications. Its flexibility allows end users to safely incorporate multiple revenue streams for more favorable payback periods. It is the most cost-effective flow battery system on the market today.
