e.battery systems doubles turnover and personnel

WOLFURT, 02.02.2023

Wolfurt, February 2, 2023 – The Vorarlberg-based battery technology specialist e.battery systems, after doubling its turnover for the third time in a row, is also focusing on steep growth in fiscal year 2022/23. With the series production of liquid-cooled lithium-ion batteries for 2- and 3-wheeled vehicles and the market launch of second-life energy storage systems, the company aims to double turnover again to eight million euros. The focus is on international growth markets in India, the Middle East and Europe. After multiplying the workforce from 30 to 60 employees from 2021 to 2022, an increase of a further 20 percent is planned this year.

For the third time in a row, the Austrian technology company e.battery systems has doubled its turnover and personnel. The 2021/22 fiscal year was concluded at the end of September with a sales turnover of almost four million euros – for the current one, a plus of 100 percent is planned again with eight million. "We want to leverage our technological edge and tap into new potential worldwide with customized, efficient solutions. To this end, we are creating even more capacity and expanding our team," explains CEO and founder Christopher Schöpf.

With the move to the new location in Wolfurt (Vorarlberg), the developer and manufacturer of high-quality battery systems, founded in 2019, has created space for expansion at the beginning of 2022. The workforce was doubled over the past year from 30 to currently 60 employees – twelve new jobs are to be created this year. The management team has also been expanded: the previous project manager Christoph Pürmair has been responsible for operations since the beginning of 2023. The research and development department has been doubled from five to ten employees. In its in-house innovation center, the company focuses on new technologies, alternative materials and recycling management.

Innovative cooling technology and safe storage systems

Following the successful market launch of replaceable lithium-ion batteries for 2- and 3-wheeled vehicles, e.battery systems is pushing forward their series production in 2023. The specially developed liquid cooling technology of the battery packs enables safer, more durable, and efficient use. Last year, e.battery systems started the development and production of a new generation of scooter batteries together with the Indian company Amara Raja Batteries. From the end of 2023, the first series of several tens of thousands are to be manufactured. In addition to India, Schöpf also sees growth opportunities in Europe and the Middle East.

With the innovative second-life energy storage systems (ESS) for industry and commerce, e.battery systems plans to produce at least 15 megawatt hours for customers in the DACH region in 2023. Long-term supply agreements with international automotive manufacturers secure the demand for used lithium-ion batteries from hybrid vehicles. Their service life is extended by up to ten years through recycling. Added to this are cost savings of up to 30 percent compared with new systems and a flexible module system. "Our high-performance storage systems save resources, reduce emissions, complete sustainable energy systems and offer companies security against outages or the risk of blackouts," Christopher Schöpf is convinced.
