"Relectrify, an Australian battery technology company, said the installation of
the ReVolve battery energy storage solution had allowed Sydney-based paint
manufacturer Colormaker to realize a “step-change improvement” in energy
self-sufficiency and further reduce its energy costs.

Having already made a significant reduction in their use of grid electricity
since installing 100 kW of rooftop solar, Colormaker integrated the ReVolve
battery energy storage system with the existing solar energy infrastructure to
gain further financial benefits from the asset.

Relectrify said key success metrics for the project include optimised solar
self-consumption, reduced purchase of grid-supplied energy, and reduced demand.

Melbourne-based Relectrify said early data indicates that both power and
associated costs are poised to decrease to single-digit percentages compared to
pre-battery installation levels.

The ReVolve battery energy storage product uses second-life Nissan Leaf
electric vehicle (EV) battery packs coupled with patented cell-level control
technology that combines an integrated battery management system (BMS) and
inverter hardware solution.

The hybrid system replaces conventional BMS and inverters with a single
electronic solution that allows for control of individual cells to generate
grid-compliant alternating current (AC) directly from a battery pack."
