Firm Promises to Provide High Performance Custom Solutions
‘Optimized to Outperform Any Battery Systems on the EV Market’
Santa Monica, Calif.-based Romeo Power is hitting the market with a line of battery packs it says “are optimized to outperform any battery systems on the EV market today.”
The company is “cell-agnostic,” says co-founder and CTO Porter Harris. Romeo’s focus is on customer needs, he says, and the design of powerful, compact battery packs. Romeo’s strategy is to let the cell manufacturers do what they do, and to focus instead on application-specific packaging.
“Romeo Power designs and manufactures electric vehicle, consumer and industrial battery systems that are optimized to store more energy and deliver more robust, reliable power and solar charging capabilities,” the company says. “EV and consumer lines will launch in early 2017.”
‘A Purely Customer-Driven Solution’
“Romeo’s optimized cell packaging provides the most efficient volumetric, weight, energy and thermal configuration possible.”
“We optimize on the assembly level to complement the high-power cell,” Harris told F&F. “It’s a purely customer-driven solution,” he says, “from a complete systems view…
“Whatever the customer’s application is.”
Harris was chief battery architect for Faraday Future, and also worked on batteries for the F9 rocket, a product of Tesla affiliate Space X.
Romeo is evaluating sites in California and Nevada for a manufacturing facility.
