Intelligent Battery Tech Firm Wins 2017 New Energy Challenge

Intelligent Battery Tech Firm Wins 2017 New Energy Challenge

Technology that increases the lifetime and reliability of battery packs won first place this week in the New Energy Challenge 2017 in Amsterdam. Start-up U.K. company Brill Power received a 100,000-euro (US$118,000) convertible loan for its submission of an innovative solution that enables individual control of each lithium-ion cell in a battery pack. In a recent video about the company, Brill Power CEO Christoph Birkl said that what happens inside a battery is really important, noting that over time, batteries lose their ability to store energy not only because of their material properties, but also because all the cells are slightly different. They lose their ability to store energy at different rates, and current batteries can’t handle that difference. Therefore, the performance of the entire battery is limited by the weakest cell. To make batteries smarter, Birkl said,...
