Identification

PowerBRIC is one of the lowest cost modular battery system for stationary energy storage in the world with no compromise on performance and safety.

The result is an advanced battery electronic system having low cost by simplifying assembly and manufacturing process significantly and allowing maximum battery system longevity with a broader range and less expensive li-ion battery cell type. The solution is specifically designed for on- and off-grid stationary energy storage in developing countries. It incorporates several innovative designs that address safety, cost and on-ground maintainability of a highly scalable battery module system. Using unconventional and innovative electronics and sensors design, it is a complete battery system utilizing new or used small cylindrical li-ion battery cells called 18650 safely and at a low cost. A typical 18650 li-ion battery is typically discarded at 70-80% remaining capacity while PowerBRIC can utilize the same cell up until 20% remaining capacity – tripling its life.
