Accumulators of the 21st century

New venture project of the EPFL EMBA 2019

REFURBISH

We have developed a process that allows us to predict the remaining capacity of lithium-ion batteriy packs one order of magnitude better than best in class incumbents

REUSE

Healthy cell packs can be reused and minimize the waste of old batteries to be recycled and reduce the CO2 footprint of electric car battery packs.

STORE ENERGY

Old but safe battery packs can be used to store energy in stationary applications. Our technology simulates a car and integrates perfect with of the shelve components.

LET’S BE THE BEST ELECTRIC CAR BATTERY RECYCLING COMPANY IN THE WORLD

Some ideas sound crazy 
but they are genius!

The company aims to build energy storage systems from used electric car batteries. This new market for energy storage systems is growing with the demand for sustainability. The supply of used batteries is expected to grow exponentially with the global growth of electric cars, as well is the usage of photovoltaic expected to grow over the next decade. AC21 is the missing piece in the energy transition, which connects storage of renewable energies with decarbonization of the mobility and energy sector. On top of the storage business, we want to offer energy wholesale services, to build a community of renewable energy services. This will allow a recurring revenue stream and attract more businesses to our platform.  

What makes our solution better

We build the missing piece in the energy transition, which connects storage of renewable energies with decarbonization of the mobility and energy sector.

REDUCE REUSE RECYLCE

This is the basis of a sustainable business case and implemented in our venture by design.

BATTERY VENDOR INDEPENDENCE

An investment in your real estate shouldn’t lock you into a relationship with a single vendor. Our solution is open and can be enhanced or modified even without us.

SIMPLY A BOX

Many installers complained about the weight and the difficulties to install other energy storage systems. We thought it is ideal for commercial applications to put it in a container.

MACHINE LEARNING

A pool of batteries is more powerful than a battery alone. By interconnecting AC21 systems with an automated trading system, we can offer cheaper energy prices and help the grid.

GLOBAL TRENDS

Sustainabilty goals

These goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.

GLOBAL WARMING

Solving the global warming problem is regarded as the most important challenge facing humankind in the 21st century.

URBANIZATION

It is predicted that by 2050 about 64% of the developing world and 86% of the developed world will be urbanized.

HYPERMOBILITY

While the time people spent in motion remained constant, the shift from feet and bicycles to cars and planes has increased the speed of travel fivefold (since 1950s).

ENERGY TRANSITION

 Energy conservation and improvements in energy efficiency, in parallel to the development of decentralization and decarbonization of energy production.

Proof of Concept

We have selected eight buidlings from different segments to demonstrate the technology, collect millions of real life data points with sensors, continously improve our product and service offering.
