Redflow batteries and Victron inverters

Redflow’s ZBM2 and ZCell zinc-bromine flow batteries have worked with Victron Energy’s MultiGrid 48/3000 battery inverter since it was approved to connect to the Australian electricity grid in 2017.

Redflow batteries also work with Victron’s popular MultiPlus inverter range, including the MultiPlus-II, which was launched earlier this year. The MultiGrid 48/3000 is a version of the MultiPlus 48/3000 inverter enhanced to meet the AS/NZS4777.2:2015 standard for grid connection of energy systems via battery inverters.

The Victron MultiGrid 48/3000 inverter is listed on the Clean Energy Council website at http://www.solaraccreditation.com.au/products/inverters/approved-inverters.html#searchResults.

ASX-listed Redflow (ASX: RFX) produces Australia’s unique ZBM2 and ZCell zinc-bromine flow batteries, which offer significant advantages over legacy lead-acid and lithium-based batteries including 100 per cent daily depth of discharge, sustained energy storage capacity and tolerance of warm ambient temperatures as hot as 50 degrees Celsius.

Redflow System Integration Architect Simon Hackett said the Victron MultiGrid 48/3000 inverter for grid-connected battery systems was good news for consumers. “Victron inverters are easy to configure, they work beautifully with our ZBM2 and ZCell batteries and they are competitively priced,” he said.

“Victron inverters have proved popular with Redflow customers who install off-grid energy storage systems, so AS4777.2 approval makes these inverters available to a much larger market. Victron inverters integrate easily with single-battery ZCell systems and are fully compatible with all major brands of AC solar inverters. This certification builds on the strength of the Victron product line in off-grid scenarios where it has a long pedigree in Australia.”

Victron inverters are successfully integrated with many Redflow battery-based energy storage systems including:

A six-ZCell deployment in central Queensland

A major printed circuit board factory in Johannesburg, South Africa 

A two-level commercial building in the Adelaide CBD.

Founded in The Netherlands in 1975, Victron Energy first built a strong international reputation for its automotive and marine battery inverters. The privately owned company then entered the solar PV market, leveraging its experience to build robust and reliable off-grid battery inverters which are now certified for use with grid-connected hybrid energy storage systems.
