Aceleron is a technology company focused on providing low cost energy storage. To do this, Aceleron seeks to transform end of life lithium ion batteries from electric vehicles and consumer electronics, into affordable energy storage for a variety of applications. The increased uptake of low carbon vehicles in developed regions has created a waste management challenge associated with their batteries. Meanwhile the growth of renewable energy deployment worldwide and increasing popularity of light mobility products, such as electric bicycles, have increased the demand for low cost energy storage. Through reuse, Aceleron seeks to address both challenges, developing the process to identify lithium ion batteries viable for reuse, and the technology to transform them into safe, cost-effective energy storage.
