Brill Power develops intelligent battery management and control technology to increase the lifetime, reliability, safety, and sustainability of lithium-ion battery packs for stationary energy storage and electric vehicles. Our product is a game-changing combination of hardware and software optimizing the capability of battery cells within battery packs.
Battery cells do not degrade uniformly over time meaning battery packs underperform, behaving only as well as their weakest link. Therefore, packs must be oversized by up to 20% to meet lifetime requirements and when one series-connected module dies, the entire pack is sent to waste. By managing the cells within packs more intelligently, Brill Power can extend battery lifetime by up to 60% or deliver up to 15% more energy when a conventional battery system would be discarded. Our technology can be used when designing packs for both first and second life battery applications, meaning batteries can be as intelligent and sustainable as possible.
Brill Power is a 2016 spin-out company from the University of Oxford, and we work with organisations across the battery industry to make batteries smarter.
