ACELERON is a start-up looking to revolutionise access to low-cost energy storage.

We up-cycle perceived end-of-life lithium batteries into repurposed packs. We are currently focussed on developing a 12V lead acid battery drop-in replacement using lithium technology so that we can provide a battery with all of the benefits of lithium for the same price as a 12V lead acid battery.

This has huge implication for access to energy for bottom of the pyramid, where for the first time they will have access to a better standard of energy storage, encouraging the uptake of renewable energy generation.

To do this we have developed:

  1. Fast testing processes (3X faster than competition) to identify used lithium batteries viable for reuse.
  2. Unique hardware (patent pending) to repackage them into serviceable battery packs for appropriate applications.

This hardware is designed with the circular economy in mind, which means we are able to disassemble/reassemble the hardware easily which makes it ideal for repurposing old batteries. Safety of the batteries has also been designed into the hardware. We are therefore able to provide low cost, safe, and secure energy storage.
