University of Birmingham spinout About:Energy has launched the Voltt, a software platform for battery design, testing and optimization.
The Voltt, a fully operational cloud platform, centralizes battery design project data and lets users compare and examine various battery types to choose the optimal cells for their needs. It will have tiered subscriptions. The Enter level predicts the battery design’s electrical and thermal behaviors, the Explore level predicts electrochemical behaviors like voltage-current behavior and internal state, and the Elevate level adds degradation due to cumulative use and shelf life, cost modeling and supply chain, scale-up, battery management and system design.
“One of the most important aspects to accurate modeling is accurate inputs. About:Energy has the expertise in model parameterization in addition to the models, and the Voltt encompasses both,” said Emma Kendrick, co-founder of About:Energy. “The user can access a wealth of information and insights required to make those decisions about battery design, choice or optimum operation.”
