A Scottish technology specialist has secured funding worth £200,000 to develop battery management systems for wind turbines and EVs.

Dukosi will develop a full prototype of a technology that monitors lithium ion cells in batteries to extend battery life and make them more efficient and safe.

The Scottish Co-investment Fund, which is partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Par Equity, an investment firm provided the investment.

The technology will be used in energy storage devices for wind turbines and car batteries for hybrid electric vehicles.

Stephen Churcher, Chief Executive of the company said: “The technology results in batteries being safer and more efficient. There are a variety of applications, from making cars more efficient and cheaper to run, to assisting the renewable energy industry in the challenge they face in matching generating capacity to grid load demands. The funding Dukosi has secured allows us to take the technology to the next stage of develop to market.”
