REVOV is an energy storage solutions company that sells carry-case sized lithium-iron batteries either as single units or in powerful systems of up to 200 batteries.
A South African company answering the global call to reduce carbon emissions, REVOV caters directly to the insecure electricity grid in South Africa as well as to growing demand in the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa. REVOV was founded in 2015 and has sold in excess of 12000 batteries.
The batteries are either charged by the electricity grid, where they are used to provide backup power to commercial, industrial or residential facilities, or are connected to renewable energy sources such as solar panels or wind turbines to provide continuous renewable energy. REVOV’s customers include wholesalers, installers and end users.
REVOV has become renowned for its 1st and 2nd LiFe batteries, which provide a compelling case to bring lithium-iron performance to the market at a significantly reduced cost. Pound for pound, REVOV is the go-to for value for money.
2nd LiFe batteries contain cells that were used in electric vehicle (EV) batteries in China. An EV battery is replaced after about five years of use when its performance no longer justifies its weight in the vehicle. However, these batteries still have more than 3500 cycles (that’s 10 to 15 years) in them, when used for stationary applications where weight does not matter. This compelling business case means that by repurposing the cells, REVOV offers customers two important solutions: lithium-iron performance that’s affordable and the knowledge that the 2nd LiFe product is carbon and earth-friendly.
The renewable energy sector in South Africa, which was given a second wind when it was confirmed as an integral part of the country’s energy security plans, is expected to continue its strong growth. 2nd LiFe batteries, which significantly reduce the carbon footprint of mining, manufacturing and shipping of raw materials for new cells, are a seamless fit to support global efforts to significantly reduce carbon footprint. Beyond that, REVOV’s batteries provide clean backup to the continent’s electricity supply.
REVOV is equipped with a full contingent of local, technical support, design and engineering teams to ensure that all customers, whether wholesalers, installers on end-users get full and comprehensive support, in an age when lead time backlogs and delays become commonplace in the industry
REVOV was founded by Lance Dickerson, former CTO of MTN in Ghana and Felix von Bormann, former engineering consultant for Sprint in the US. They are both highly skilled engineers that bring a combined 50 years’ experience in the telecoms industry.
