Ensync Energy systems, together with its subsidiaries, engages in the development, manufacture, and marketing of energy storage systems for utility companies, renewable energy generators, and commercial and industrial customers. Its energy storage systems are based upon its proprietary zinc-bromine rechargeable electrical energy storage technology.  

EnSync Energy Systems is enabling the future of electricity with advanced energy management systems critical to a global economy becoming increasingly reliant upon the expansion of renewable energy.


Whether part of the grid power transmission and distribution network, or behind the meter in commercial, industrial and multi-tenant buildings, EnSync technology brings differentiated power control and energy storage solutions to electricity-challenged environments. Our technologies also serve as the system level intelligence in microgrid applications, by seamlessly integrating multiple generation and storage assets to deliver power in remote and community level environments not served by the grid, or areas electing to use the grid secondary to microgrid assets. 


At a macro level, the least expensive and most reliable electricity is best accomplished with the ability to prioritize electricity from the grid, renewables and storage, by synchronizing each of these assets in real time and leveraging their respective value. At the micro level, the ability to monetize numerous applications on the customer side of the meter provides the ability to utilize almost any combination of applications possible, including supply response, time-of-use, frequency regulation, back-up power, demand charge clipping and numerous others, all to ensure the lowest cost electricity available at any given moment.  We optimize all macro and customer side of the meter resources to ensure delivery of the highest customer value electricity.  


In 2015, EnSync Energy began including power purchase agreements (PPA's) into its portfolio of offerings, enabling electricity savings for customers and providing a stable financial yield for investors. Headquartered just outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, EnSync is a global corporation with strategic relationships, including:

Meineng Energy, a joint venture serving the Chinese market and providing comprehensive supply chain and manufacturing capacity


Holu Energy, an energy systems project development company based in Hawaii serving the Pacific region

Commercial & Industrial Buildings (C&I)

EnSync Energy Systems offers a revolutionary energy synchronization system that enables a dramatic reduction in the cost of electricity and increases the financial returns of distributed generation systems in the C&I market. Commercial and industrial buildings have become a major opportunity for distributed generation assets to create "net zero" buildings, introduce power purchase agreements (PPA's) and provide utilities with sources of energy in critical peak or critical load situations. EnSync is the only company that can provide complete C&I building energy storage and energy management systems that unlock opportunities to generate income today, as well as "future proof" the building for any additional applications and requirements that are realized throughout the life of the asset. This includes energy management and hybrid energy storage systems.


For the C&I market, EnSync has introduced Matrix and Agile Hybrid systems which are designed to:·      


enable distributed intelligence and active control of inputs and outputs inside buildings·        

allow a building to be connected to others in a micro grid·        

provide seamless connectivity to the utility for smart export on demand·        

deliver cash generation opportunities from a building's distributed energy systems.


Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)


EnSync is participating in several innovative Power Purchase Agreements that are based on electricity delivered through a variety of generating sources, but typically featuring solar generation, and often including battery storage to further the value and capability of solar power. 


A PPA is a financial agreement by which a development entity arranges for the design, permitting, financing and installation of a distributed generation/storage system on a customer’s property at little to no cost to the customer. The owner of the PPA sells the power generated to the host customer at a fixed rate that is lower than the local utility’s retail rate. This lower electricity price serves to offset the customer’s purchase of electricity from the grid while the PPA owner receives the income from these sales of electricity as well as any tax credits and other incentives generated from the system. PPAs typically range from 10 to 25 years and the developer remains responsible for the operation and maintenance of the system for the duration of the agreement. Based on the PPA contract terms, a customer may be able to purchase the system at some point within the contract period, extend the PPA, have the system removed by the PPA owner or choose to buy the solar energy system from the PPA owner. 


Benefits of PPAs to Customers 


No or low upfront capital costs: The developer handles the upfront costs of sizing, procuring and installing the solar PV and/or energy storage systems. Without any upfront investment, the host customer is able to adopt solar and begin saving money as soon as the system becomes operational. Reduced energy costs: PPAs provide a fixed, predictable cost of electricity for the duration of the agreement and are structured in one of two ways. Under the fixed escalator plan, the price the customer pays rises at a predetermined rate, typically between 2% - 5%. This is usually lower than projected utility price increases. The fixed price plan, on the other hand, maintains a constant price throughout the term of the PPA saving the customer more as utility prices rise over time.


Limited risk: The PPA Owner is responsible for system performance and operating risk.



EnSync’s utility-scale energy storage technology is the answer to the growing penetration of renewables on today’s power grid. Utilities are faced with providing cheaper, cleaner and more reliable power as we transition away from a coal-centric economy. EnSync systems improve power quality, smooth output from intermittent generating assets, help reduce emissions, defer transmission, distribution and substation upgrades, and reduce costs associated with traditional generating plants.
An integrated system that features zinc-bromide flow battery technology can be partnered with Matrix power controls to provide for longer energy discharge applications prevalent in utility scale applications.
EnSync’s utility-scale flow batteries offer high energy density, are environmentally friendly, and are manufactured as 20-year assets.  Multiple container units can be modularly interconnected and configured with EnSync’s inverter technology to deliver an end-to-end system for quick and simple installation. EnSync’s designs are easily transferable and portable with simple site permitting in places that can be constructed not always accessible by traditional generating sources.



Microgrids are localized grids that can disconnect from the traditional grid to operate autonomously and help mitigate grid disturbances to strengthen grid resilience, and can play an important role in transforming the nation’s electric grid.


Remote microgrids, in locations where utility power isn’t available, often use a combination of renewables, diesel generators and storage for their electricity requirements.


Resiliency, independence, environmentally friendly and cost-effective are key features of today’s microgrid environments, and EnSync has become the “go-to” enabling technology. 


EnSync’s revolutionary Matrix Energy Management System prioritizes and optimizes renewables, diesel generators and energy storage assets to reliably and cost-effectively power remote, completely off-grid applications, and grid-tied applications that can “island” from the utility during outages and still derive electricity from behind-the-meter generation and storage assets. 


Matrix Energy Management Systems are innovative in that they provided differentiated capabilities as compared to conventional inverter technology, such as: 

Active Energy Synchronization for any or all DC and AC Inputs and Outputs

Prioritization and Optimization of All Generating Assets without System Controllers and Complex Algorithms

Management of Every Power and Energy Storage Application and Asset in Simultaneous Operation

Modular, Scalable, Efficient and “Future Proof” Energy Management as a 20-Year Asset


Matrix Energy Management System

The Matrix Energy Management System is breakthrough technology as a “behind the meter” energy control system targeted specifically at the commercial, industrial and multi-tenant building markets. Matrix utilizes EnSync’s patented “Auto-Sync” DC-Bus Modular Controls that enable simple integration of all AC and DC system inputs, and automatically routes the generated electricity in the most efficient and cost effective manner, in or out of the building. Matrix is modular and configurable, designed to meet the building owner’s needs today, as well as providing a “future proof” solution for potential applications tomorrow. Matrix enables complete distributed generation asset-to-utility communication for “smart export” and is able to be clustered in a secure network as a set of assets that enable real-time spot market electricity sales. Serviceability is simple with “hot swappable” drawers that can be replaced without taking the entire distributed generation system off line. DC-DC, DC-AC, and AC-DC transformers and communications drawers are all configurable to the same universal architecture in either single or multiple Matrix cabinets.
