Relectrify launches storage system made of second life EV batteries
Australia based energy storage company Relectrify launched the ReVolve battery energy storage product, a modular 120 kWh system that uses second life Nissan Leaf EV battery packs.
The ReVolve battery energy storage system (BESS) is wholly integrated with the company’s cell level battery management system (BMS), inbuilt inverter, and control system. ReVolve is an affordable, sustainable and long lasting BESS. Powered by Relectrify’s technology to repurpose high quality second life batteries from EVs, ReVolve is designed for industrial and commercial installations from 120kWh to 2MWh.
ReVolve BESS uses:

Relectrify told the media, each three phase unit provides grid compliant 400 to 480 Vac output, with 120 kWh of capacity and 36 kVA of continuous power. The units are suitable for both off-grid and grid connected applications.
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) said Relectrify, which has been working with Nissan North America and American Electric Power on a pilot project, will finalise development and undertake certifications ahead of the deployment of 20 ReVolve battery units across commercial and industrial applications throughout Australia.
Often, EV batteries are considered to have reached end-of-life when they have degraded to 80% of their initial capacity. Relectrify plans to demonstrate that the second life battery remains valuable and useful in stationary storage applications.
Relectrify is an Australia based developer and supplier of advanced control solutions that boost cycle life and reduces cost in energy storage solutions for homes, industry, the power grids and beyond. Backed by leading energy investors, Relectrify solutions have attracted interest from global energy storage manufacturers, including 4R Energy Japan, power utilities including American Electric Power and Vector NZ, and automotive companies, including VW Group Germany and Nissan US.
