Relectrify builds on lead in battery cell-level control with investment led by At One Ventures

29 May 2024

Relectrify, a world leader in battery cell-level control electronics and software, announced today that it has closed an oversubscribed 17 million AUD funding round led by Silicon Valley-based At One Ventures. The investment enables Relectrify to scale and apply its transformational CellSwitch™ technology to the next generation of battery storage systems for international markets.

Relectrify’s existing investors Toyota Ventures, Australia’s Clean Energy Finance Corporation whose investment is managed by Virescent Ventures, Energy Innovation Capital, GS Futures, Creative Ventures, NOAB Ventures and Relectrify’s Board Chair John Clifford, further increased their investment.

Relectrify’sCellSwitch technology, which has been recognised by CleanTechnica as the world leader in the emerging field of cell-level control for battery systems, achieves game-changing performance improvements for energy storage assets while reducing the cost of systems by eliminating the need for conventional inverters. The technology controls each cell in a battery enabling the extraction of more energy from the system, extending the operational life of a battery storage asset by as much as 30 per cent.

This investment builds on Relectrify’s successful rollout of industrial-scale battery storage systems featuring the CellSwitch technology, which is protected by over 30 granted and pending patents, including in the US, Canada, Europe, South Korea, China, and Japan.

“Relectrify’s cell-level control system not only increases the lifespan of energy storage systems by up to 30 per cent but also dramatically cuts CAPEX by removing the need for inverters while significantly reducing the risk of failures that lead to safety issues like fires,” said Laurie Menoud, founding partner at At One Ventures and new Relectrify board member.

In essence, Relectrify drives down the cost of battery storage, accelerating the shift towards renewable energy and the move away from fossil fuels. We are highly impressed with Relectrify’s technical solution and market traction, and are thrilled to lead this funding round.
