About Relectrify

Relectrify is a high-growth venture that builds cutting-edge technology to reduce the cost and unlock extra lifetime in lithium-ion batteries. By combining innovative electronics with intelligent algorithms and data analytics, our technology allows used electric car batteries to be given a second life as energy storage systems in households, the power grid and beyond.

Relectrify was founded in 2015 out of research at the University of Melbourne. The company has since launched projects with American Electric Power, Nissan US, Volkswagen Group Germany, Vector New Zealand and 4R Energy Japan amongst other companies, and received support by leading clean energy investors including the CEFC Innovation Fund. The Environment Bureau Hong Kong, Falling Walls Germany and international utility program Free Electrons have all recognised Relectrify as a leading innovator in energy storage. Relectrify is today the global leader in full cell-level current control for battery packs, extending the lifetime of battery packs while reducing cost.

About the Technology

Relectrify’s BMS+Inverter is a mixed power electronics and software solution, which utilises cell-level battery management systems (BMS) to provide a very high-efficiency AC output without requiring a battery inverter. Grid-compliant AC waveforms are created by accurately orchestrating a vast number of individual cell voltage contributions within a battery pack. This enables Relectrify to significantly increase battery lifetime and reduce battery cost.

Our solutions are used in capable, affordable battery storage in homes, industry, the power grids, and beyond. Relectrif forms strategic collaborations with innovative, sector-leading storage companies across the world to jointly develop and release uniquely positioned storage products.
