Accelerating innovation

Battery Associates develops innovative projects relevant to battery innovation.

Innovation for sustainable batteries

Battery Associates develops innovative projects to accelerate battery innovation. Our current projects include an open-source battery cycler, a competition platform for battery developers (BatteryDEV), and an Ethical Battery Rating system (EBR).

Battery Cycler

Testing and reuse of batteries cells is a major aspect of the energy transition. B.A’s battery cycler responds to a pressing challenge in the energy space. B.A develops both hardware and software components of an open-source battery cycler to create an affordable and modular battery tester. Potential applications include research, education, and testing. 

Battery Cycler


To address technical battery limitations, B.A launched an open-source competition platform for battery developers worldwide. Competitions result in custom battery solutions in areas such as: State-of-health predictions for mobility applications, AI-optimised R&D, and battery degradation predictions for stationary applications. In February 2021, BatteryDEV won the second place of the 10toGo Challenge ran by Microsoft and Volkswagen.
