Rimac Energy has created a novel battery architecture that reduces efficiency losses by up to 50% whilst decreasing the system footprint by up to 40% compared to current state-of-the-art solutions, the announcement reads.

The new business will be presented by Rimac Energy’s director Wasim Sarwar Dilov at the Belgrade Energy Forum 2023, which will be held on May 8-9.

The Rimac Energy product portfolio includes utility-scale systems, commercial and industrial applications, and e-chargers

According to the firm, the Rimac Energy product portfolio includes utility-scale ESS, commercial and industrial applications, and highly integrated battery-buffered charging solutions. All products are fully designed, developed, and produced in Europe, it said.

Rimac Energy revealed a plan to begin the production of pilot systems for selected customers this year, with commissioning scheduled for 2024. Mass manufacturing is set to start in 2025 at the Rimac Campus in Croatia, with manufacturing capacities continuously scaling up into the double-digit GWh-scale, it said.

The company pointed out that it has several customer projects in discussion, including a pilot with a major renewable energy company to provide battery storage solutions for its solar power plants and wind farms.

Rimac Energy has been steadily built as a specialized team within Rimac Technology over the last 18 months and now consists of 60 employees, the statement reads.
