BOSTON, Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — EnSync, Inc. (NYSE American: ESNC), dba EnSync Energy Systems, a leading developer of innovative distributed energy resources (DERs), and DCfusion, a subsidiary of EnSync Energy and pioneer in direct current (DC) system engineering design, consulting and policy, have been contracted to design and manage the Net Zero Zone and Microgrid Showcase at this year’s Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, the world’s largest green building conference. The design leverages EnSync Energy’s Matrix® Energy Management system and DER Flex™ Internet of Energy software to create a microgrid that will power a part of the exhibition.
Greenbuild’s Net Zero Zone reflects the growing interest in reducing carbon dioxide emissions from buildings, which account for a whopping 39 percent of emissions in the United States—more than any other sector. The exhibition showcases technologies that will help building operators achieve net zero emissions by producing enough renewable energy to offset the energy consumed.
“Getting to ‘net zero’ is possible with the right tools,” said Dan Nordloh, executive vice president of EnSync Energy. “Adding renewable energy sources requires managing DERs in a synchronized manner. At Greenbuild, we will demonstrate how our adaptable hardware-software system manages these energy sources to prioritize and deliver the highest value, most reliable electricity for buildings. Our technology simplifies the complexities behind transitioning to the future of power: cleaner, distributed energy.”
DCfusion is engineering the alternating current (AC)/DC hybrid microgrid, and EnSync Energy’s technologies will serve as its control center. The Net Zero Zone will also provide connections for companies to demonstrate their technologies working in real time – including energy storage batteries, hydrogen fuel cells and more. EnSync Energy’s command center – utilizing its Matrix Energy Management and DER Flex technology – will gather data and determine which power sources to prioritize and ensure the loads are supplied with the most effective energy. The showcase’s lead organizer is the EMerge Alliance, an open industry association leading the adoption of DC power distribution in commercial buildings through the development of EMerge Alliance standards. DCfusion is an active member.
The Net Zero Zone and Microgrid Showcase will be located on the main exhibition floor of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center on November 8 through 10. The Net Zero Zone microgrid will be powered from solar arrays located outdoors near the showcase. An “Unplugging Ceremony,” during which the Net Zero Zone will officially go “off the grid” for the remainder of the conference, will take place on November 8 at 10:15 a.m. Eastern Time.
