Communication Manager

From our very inception, Acculon has been steadfast in our dedication to integrating cutting-edge technologies into every aspect of our advanced energy storage products. Our unwavering commitment to innovation never comes at the expense of safety, however, as we consider safety more than simply a feature of energy storage–it is woven into the very fabric of our product development process. Acculon’s expertise in battery pack design, cell selection, and advanced, AI-powered battery management systems (BMS) is leading the way in next-gen battery systems for a range of applications. At Acculon, we design for life: the life of the battery system and the lives of people who depend on a safe, reliable, and long-lasting power source.

We started in June of 2022 when CAR Technologies, a tier-one advanced battery lab, and Technicity LLC’s battery prototyping and controls division combined to create Acculon Energy, Inc. Shortly after in August, Terex Corporation led a Series A investment in Acculon Energy, focusing on advanced battery programs of industrial and commercial OEMs. During the fall of 2022, we opened our Module Innovation Center on our campus located in Columbus, Ohio. As 2023 commenced, Acculon’s design engineering organization expanded to over 30 engineers with specialties that span mechanical, electrical, thermal, BMS and controls, test engineering for OEM  battery design, prototyping, and certification programs. We also expanded our state-of-the-art battery testing laboratory, including 120 high-power, high-accuracy cell testing channels and 8 high-voltage, high-power module and pack testing channels for cell-to-module-to-pack validation and certification programs.

In the spring of 2023, Acculon partnered with Ohio State University’s Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis (CEMAS) to expand the team’s battery material and systems expertise. One year after our official launch, we successfully developed low-voltage battery modules (24v and 48v) designed to UL safety certification standards. In the fall of 2023, we expanded our manufacturing capacity with the acquisition of two state-of-the-art production lines in collaboration with PIA Automation. These lines have a combined capacity of 2GWh, underscoring our commitment to US-based manufacturing. Our manufacturing lines are calibrated to accommodate our modular, flexible, and scalable system-level architecture dubbed CORE, which we unveiled earlier in 2024. 

Our R&D efforts are in full swing as we continue to invest in module designs catering to a diverse array of cell chemistries, as well as cylindrical, prismatic, and pouch form factors. We are confident that our dedication to advancing battery technology will undoubtedly play a crucial role in shaping the future of various industries and applications across a range of market segments.

“The creative nature of Acculon’s employees and the collaboration with our clients, who are the best of the best, is not just being replicated, but is becoming a benchmark for exponential growth and excellence in our field.”

– Andrew Thomas, 
Acculon Energy President

Acculon Energy’s president, Andrew Thomas, touts our company’s path forward as we continue to mature and evolve.

Looking ahead, Acculon is poised for further growth and expansion. We are going to continue to invest in state-of-the-art facilities, expand our team, and forge strategic partnerships to broaden our range of offerings and cater to the evolving needs of our customers. By providing comprehensive design and manufacturing services–all under one roof–Acculon is aiming to become the go-to partner for businesses seeking innovative and sustainable energy storage solutions.
