It was an interesting week for Canadian energy storage firm Zinc8 Energy Solutions with news it had settled a debt claim, reached a settlement with its former CEO and signed a deal to deploy zinc-air storage in New York.

Of all three announcements made on 11 March, arguably the most interesting was the deployment agreement with New York-based private sector developer Digital Energy Corp.

The agreement is for the installation of a 100kW/1.5MWh zinc-air ESS in Brooklyn, New York.

The CAN$2.5 million ($1.8 million) project will receive CAN$600,00 ($435,000) from The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
