Aust–US partnership brings large-scale mobile battery solutions to APAC

Australian-owned clean tech business Powershift Technologies has entered into a partnership with US company POWR2, a specialist in advanced mobile battery energy storage.

The collaboration will provide a flexible leasing model aimed at industries grappling with grid constraints or relying heavily on diesel generators for temporary power.

Powershift Technologies will be the exclusive distributor of POWR2’s POWRBANK MAX in the Australian, New Zealand and Pacific Islands regions.

“As an organisation we are committed to being at the forefront of providing cleaner, quieter, smarter solutions that will accelerate major industries as they transition to net zero,” said Powershift Technologies Co-Founder and CEO Damien Glanville.

“It’s an amazing opportunity to partner with a company that exemplifies quality and innovation and is dedicated to creating world-class products for global markets.”

According to Powershift Technologies, Australian industry spends over $5 billion per year on diesel generators and fuel, with many of these generators supporting power needs that are temporary. The company said that until now, there had been limited renewable energy storage solutions on the market that have sufficient power and are transportable in the same way generators are.

“By embracing smarter mobile battery technology, we can reshape the temporary power landscape and provide cleaner, more efficient alternatives to major industries,” said Powershift Technologies Co-Founder and COO Sandra Brodie. “Our mobile battery energy storage solutions solve this issue. They are intelligent systems that provide silent, zero-emission power, whenever and wherever it’s needed, and at industrial scale.

The POWRBANK MAX offers a sustainable energy solution for a wide range of temporary applications, including in major industries like construction, civil engineering, mining, agriculture and utilities.

“Powershift embodies the calibre of partners we seek at POWR2,” said VP of Corporate Strategy at POWR2 Hudson Nunn. “With decades of experience in renewables and utilities, the Powershift team is poised to redefine temporary power through mobile BESS (battery energy storage systems) across multiple industrial landscapes.”
