In recent months, the Relectrify team has made pronounced progress in scaling its battery life-extending battery management and control technology into commercial, industrial, and grid-level storage.
As such, Relectrify is all the more pleased to have been chosen by global power utility program Free Electrons as one of its 15 international growth companies, working with leading utilities towards joint storage deployments.
Free Electrons is a global alliance of energy utilities, including:
- American Electric Power, US
- AusNet Services, Australia
- Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, Dubai
- Electricity Supply Board (ESB), Ireland
- Energias de Portugal (EDP), Portugal
- innogy New Ventures LLC, Germany
- Origin Energy, Australia
- SP Group, Singapore
- Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO), Japan
As one of 15 companies chosen from over 500 applicants, Relectrify will work with the utilities on joint commercial propositions, including multi-day modules in Melbourne/Sydney (Australia), the San Francisco Bay Area (US), and Berlin (Germany). This is a tremendously exciting opportunity for Relectrify to accelerate the adoption of its life-extending battery management technology, including for second-life batteries.
Tony Lucas, Origin’s Executive General Manager for New Energy, said, "Relectrify is a company that has recognised an emerging market in repurposing car batteries and we’re excited to work with them see where they can take it and hopefully help them develop it commercially. It’s great to see an Australian start-up selected out of 500 applications globally as part of the Free Electrons top 15 to be able to take their idea to the next stage."
Relectrify's selection to Free Electrons was covered by a number of news outlets including The Financial Review and The Sydney Morning Herald as well as in a press release by Australian utility Origin.
