Rapidly declining battery prices are transforming the largest energy storage sectors in our world today; i.e., transportation, power grid and renewable energy. To accelerate this transformation, it is necessary to change the batteries from being black boxes to managed assets. Bii’s vision is that the use of engineering models, trade-offs between economics and battery degradation, and optimizing performance without compromising safety will be requirements of next generation BMS products. Bii calls this “model-based and application-aware BMS.”
Bii’s mission is to become the leading provider of model-based, application-aware, BMS.
Bii has access to world-class research related to batteries from Chemical Engineering Department at University of Washington (UW). Bii has access to a stream of IP, research, and talent from UW that will provide long-term advantages.
