IIT-Incubated PuREnergy Startup to Launch Lithium Batteries


PuREnergy has designed and assembled lithium batteries with wide applications in fields from agriculture to aerospace

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Hyderabad incubated startup PuREnergy has developed affordable lithium batteries. The startup has designed and assembled lithium batteries with wide applications in fields from agriculture to aerospace.

Current models of lithium batteries in the market are expensive therefore PuREnergy plans to make them available at economical prices due to their strong design capabilities and in-house product development. Well, the startup is commercially launching them during the Renewable Energy Expo 2018 that begins at Greater Noida.

Application of PuREnergy batteries’ in tanks and missiles

The startup is in close discussion with a few defence laboratories for their battery applications in tanks, missiles and communication equipment. They mentioned that the batteries must work under harsh environmental conditions and need to reduce the weight by four times compared to lead-acid technology. The batteries also need to deliver high discharge currents which are to be achieved by doping of anodes and cathodes.

The startup claimed it has been one of the pioneers in developing solar hybrid systems combining solar PV with battery back-up and grid synchronisation. It has served more than 100 clients in sectors as varied as Telangana government, pharmaceuticals, real estate, hospitals and non-governmental organisations at the national level.

The team has built expertise in the battery design by choosing application specific cell chemistry to offer lower total cost of ownership, efficient thermal management systems to enhance life by 50 per cent for Indian conditions. It also offers in-house testing and service facilities to achieve better warranty period.

The products are currently available in 0.2 KWH to 2 KWH (agriculture drones, automobile), 2 to 20 KWH (aerospace, electric autos & carriers, telecom and household) and 50 to 500 KWH (residential societies, data centres and industrial entities).
