Our technology lifecycle

Portacell battery modules use proven lithium-ion technology. This remains the best current available solution for reliability, security and sufficiency of supply.

However, we recognise that their manufacture has an environmental impact and we place an emphasis on improving sustainability through improvement and re-use.

Our experts work at the frontiers of advanced battery technology and operate a process of best available technology principles (BAT).

The unique modular plug-and-play cell design eliminates downtime and improves performance, ensuring an expected 15-year lifespan as a PaaS product and maximising the potential for second life applications, including for power grid storage.
