Calgary, November 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Exro Technologies, Inc. (TSX: EXRO), (OTCQB: EXROF) (“company“or”Ecoro“) is pleased to announce that the company has received the 2022 Lighting for Business Innovation Award from the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA). Exro is honored to have been selected by the NEMA Nominating and Awards Committee for its technical innovation and application of advanced technology To be recognized among previous winners in the field of e-mobility, including companies like ChargePoint Holdings Inc.
Founded in 1926, NEMA is an ANSI-accredited Standards Development Organization (SDO) composed of business leaders, electrical specialists, engineers, scientists and technicians. The Lighting for Business Innovation Award is an annual recognition for companies that have achieved success through entrepreneurial expertise, advanced technology application or groundbreaking innovation.This year’s awards were presented last night by SeozdemirExro CEO at NEMA Annual Meeting & Awards Dinner amelia island, Florida.
In accepting this honor, Seozdemir Said, “I am extremely proud to accept this award from NEMA, an organization I have great respect for for its contributions to our industry and shares Exro’s commitment to leading the transition to a sustainable electrified world. Although Exro is a relative newcomer to the Electrification, where we continue to push above our weight class, advancing our EV (Coil Driver™) and stationary energy storage (Cell Driver™) innovative know-how from relevant proof of concept in 2019 to manufacturing commercialization in 2023 Third Volume production begins quarterly. We are very grateful to NEMA for this recognition and the industry leadership they have provided to many great manufacturers of electrical products.”
Exro Coil Driver™ – Award Winning Electric Vehicle Technology
A motor is only as smart as the controller telling it to behave. At Exro, our theory is that if we make the controller smarter, we can improve the performance of the entire powertrain. Exro achieves this with a new generation of power control electronics called the Coil Driver™. The Coil Driver™ takes the state-of-the-art physics of coil switching and provides the ability to control the motor at the individual coil level through the power electronics embedded in the inverter. This coil level control provides the ability to switch motor profiles in real time to provide two independent speed-torque profiles from the same motor, effectively extending the operating range of the motor by acting like an electronic gear. This allows manufacturers significant design flexibility: Exro’s technology can increase performance by as much as 50% at a marginal cost increase, or the system can be optimized to reduce weight and complexity without sacrificing performance Save up to 20% on powertrain costs. Coil Driver™ also removes the onboard charger for high voltage drivers. Removing extra equipment simplifies the system, reduces system power consumption, and provides design flexibility for integrators. This leads to major cost efficiencies in electric transportation, offering the potential to accelerate the transportation industry’s transition away from internal combustion engines by addressing the performance-cost trade-off for automakers. Volume production of the Coil Driver™ will begin at Exro’s world-class manufacturing facility Calgary, Alberta Beginning in the third quarter of 2023, North American supply assurance for up to 300,000 units per year is provided to customers.
Exro’s Cell Driver™ – Next Generation Energy Storage Technology
The market outlook for stationary energy storage continues to grow amid the global drive for sustainable and clean energy solutions.Stress on the utility grid has resulted in rolling blackouts in places such as california, Texas, Arizona and more. These outages, combined with high peak electricity rates, highlight the growing need for flexible backup energy storage solutions, especially for commercial and industrial applications. As the world looks to accelerate the adoption rate of the electrification of transportation and energy storage, one of the biggest challenges to be solved in the next 5-10 years is the supply of batteries. While suitable for new batteries, the primary goal of Exro’s Cell Driver™ technology is to provide an effective solution for secondary use applications, providing significant cost savings by recovering and utilizing spent EV and telecom batteries for secondary use. The giants that enable these batteries are critical to reducing the environmental and climate change impacts associated with battery recycling and disposal, as well as delivering real-world solutions that lead to a circular electrification economy. Exro’s Cell Driver™ is equipped with the company’s battery control system technology, a next-generation innovation that extends the capabilities of batteries through dynamic monitoring at the cell level. Its ability to store excess clean solar energy allows greater control over when large electricity consumers draw power from the local utility grid, reducing energy costs. Electricity prices vary based on when and how the unique power source is used, and the energy stored in Exro’s Cell Driver™ can be used to power EV charging stations and C&I facilities when electricity prices are high, keeping energy costs low.
About Exro Technology
Ekro Technologies is a leading clean technology company developing a new generation of power control electronics that changes the way the world optimizes energy by extending the capabilities of electric motors and batteries. The company’s innovative technologies help bridge the performance-cost gap between electric vehicles (Coil Driver™) and stationary energy storage (Cell Driver™), and accelerate the adoption of a circular electrification economy by delivering more energy with less the result of.
