Honolulu building gets battery energy storage

The relative isolation and high price of electricity in Hawaii is leading to a lot of projects featuring energy storage in the island state. The latest is a batteries and power management system that will allow a Honolulu building to use its elevators during power outages, without the need for a backup diesel generator.

The ZBB Energy Corp-supplied NIDON Clean Energy system will integrate both power from the electrical grid as well as renewable energy from the building a 20-kilowatt solar system, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
