Singapore begins its energy revolution with two lithium-ion ESS led projects

Fri, 11/06/2020 - 10:09 -- Paul Crompton

Singapore is testing the energy storage system (ESS) waters with the deployment of its first grid-scale lithium-ion venture and the launch of a pilot project aiming to demonstrate the usefulness of a floating system.

Both projects, including the first utility-scale ESS in Singapore, represent an important milestone in the city’s energy transition towards a low-carbon energy future.

Singapore firm invests in Indian lead-acid manufacturer

Lead-acid battery newbies Greenvision Technologies has secured an $8million (Rs 52 crore) investment from a Singapore-based venture fund company.

The Indian start-up — which only entered the battery industry three years ago—  gained the funding from Vintage Energy & Resources.

Based in Bengaluru, Greenvision Technologies was founded by Biju Bruno and Atul Mehta to research, design and manufacture AGM and Gel VRLA batteries.

Bruno said: “Our battery business is a new one, and we got there because we discovered that the market potential is huge for batteries, especially in emerging sectors like solar and electric vehicles.”

The firm’s manufacturing facility is based at Hosur in Tamil Nadu. It sells its products under the brand name Relicell, exports its products to the middle-east and Africa and has filed five patent applications.

Relicell batteries are tested and certified by leading laboratories including CPRI (Central Power Research Institute) and ETDC (Electronic Test & Development Centre).

The company recently launched a maintenance-free gel-based battery for home inverter applications, and back in January launched a battery for India’s growing e-rickshaw market.
