Relectrify makes energy storage affordable

Batteries that power on

Founded in 2015, Melbourne-based Relectrify develops and supplies advanced energy control solutions that increase battery cycle life and reduce energy storage costs. Relectrify has developed breakthrough technology in battery control, delivering up to 30 per cent increased battery lifetime at 30 per cent lower cost of electronics. This technology can be used across residential, industrial and grid storage, using either new or second-life batteries.

CEFC investment

The interest Relectrify is receiving from customers and partners has greatly exceeded our expectations. We are now working to discuss with, and select, the most promising battery manufacturers, distributors and integrators globally with whom to co-launch products into promising storage applications across different geographies.

Our investment

The CEFC has invested $4.4 million through the Clean Energy Innovation Fund. Supported by leading energy investors, including the CEFC, Relectrify solutions have attracted interest from global energy storage manufacturers including 4R Energy Japan, power utilities including American Electric Power and Vector NZ, and automotive companies including VW Group Germany and Nissan US.

our impact 

Relectrify’s technology reduces the cost of batteries by using a cell-level battery management system (BMS) to generate a high-efficiency AC output directly from the battery pack, avoiding the need for costly standalone inverters.  

The Relectrify BMS+Inverter solution has been demonstrated in numerous industrial and grid customer installations around the world, including with major US utility American Electric Power and Nissan North America. 

Relectrify has also developed a modular 120 kWh system made from second-life electric vehicle batteries to provide commercial and industrial energy storage solutions. Each ReVolve 3-phase unit provides grid-compliant 400-480 V AC output, with 120 kWh capacity and 36 kVA continuous power. Units can operate in both grid-connected and off-grid (grid forming) applications.
