Battery storageProject Relectrify Second-Life Battery Trial
This report provides the challenges and lessons learnt during testing and certification of the battery system. The challenges were mainly related to the unique design where all components are integrated and thus must be tested and certified together.
In March 2023, the ReVolve achieved a significant milestone by becoming the first cell-level control product of its kind at commercial and industrial scale to be certified to stringent International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards. It is also the first integrated stationary battery energy storage product using repurposed second-life EV batteries to be certified for on-grid deployment in Australia.
The initial installations of the ReVolve have been successfully completed at several customer locations. These include Nissan’s aluminium casting facility in Dandenong South, Victoria; Colormaker Industries, a boutique paint and tint producer in Sydney’s Northern Beaches; and Innovative Mechatronics Group, known for supplying electronic and mechatronic components to automotive aftermarket and original equipment manufacturers.
