Given our observe report in new battery expertise , we imagine we now have an necessary function to play in constructing Europe’s future power ecosystems, elevating them globally.
Initially, Rimac Power will present options for giant industrial, industrial, and utility-scale functions, with battery-buffered options for quick and mega-watt charging already underway. The corporate presently has a number of buyer initiatives beneath dialogue, together with a pilot with a number one renewable power firm to offer battery storage options for his or her photo voltaic and wind energy vegetation. These pilot methods are anticipated to be produced by the tip of this 12 months, and to be commissioned in 2024. Mass manufacturing is scheduled to start in 2025, with manufacturing capacities steadily growing to the double-digit GWh-scale.
The founder and CEO of Rimac Group, Mate Rimac stated:
“There may be an pressing want for clear power infrastructure to help the mixing of renewable power sources into the grid by offering storage and balancing capabilities.
