MILWAUKEE, WI -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 --  ZBB Energy Corporation
(NYSE MKT: ZBB) (the "Company"), a leading developer of intelligent,
renewable energy power platforms and hybrid vehicle control systems,
today retained Theodore (Ted) Peck as sales manager for the state of
Hawaii. In this position, Mr. Peck will be responsible for market
analysis, sales leadership and partner relationship management as ZBB
furthers initiatives with the state utilities and end-use customers. 
Mr. Peck brings more than 25 years of senior leadership in business,
government and energy management to the Company. Most recently, he
served as the General Manager, South Pacific Region for Johnson
Controls. During his tenure overseeing the Solutions business in the
Pacific, Johnson Controls booked a $150 million energy retrofit of
the 12 airports in Hawaii, the largest performance contract in the
company's and state's history. Prior to Johnson Controls, Mr. Peck
served as the Energy Administrator for the State of Hawaii, advising
the Governor and Cabinet on energy matters and policy. He also
managed the first three years of the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative,
a partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy, which implemented
an energy storage program on each island. Mr. Peck also served as a
Principal at Booz Allen Hamilton, where he opened the Honolulu office
and managed the firm's public sector business in the Pacific. He
earned a Bachelor of Science in physics from the United States Naval
Academy and is a retired nuclear submarine officer. 
"Ted's significant experience working in the state's administration
and other public and private sector markets gives him great insight
into the power and energy needs of the state. Hawaii is the most
fossil fuel dependent state in the nation and we believe our
technology platforms align well in helping Hawaii and its residents
realize further utilization of renewables, reduced energy costs,
cleaner air and the general surety of power in the event of power
outages due to natural disaster or grid instability," said Dan
Nordloh, Executive Vice President of Global Business Development for
ZBB Energy. "Ted's industry expertise, local knowledge and
professional relationships will be a great benefit as we further our
position in Hawaii."
