March the 16th, 2024 – The new Rimac battery system is currently in its certification stage, with a pilot project with another Croatian company on the cards for later on this year.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the Rimac Group’s (Grupa) new energy venture is now in its final phase. Many European energy companies striving for sustainable development are interested in his innovative battery system for energy storage. Mate Rimac’s enterprise was also visited by representatives of Austrian technology companies who consider Croatian innovation to be key in Europe’s unfolding and highly praised green transition, according to a report from HRT.

The new Rimac battery system for storing excess energy from solar and wind power plants is in the certification phase, and this interesting technology guarantees cheaper and more efficient batteries, for which there is a huge worldwide demand.

“This year we’re starting a pilot project with another Croatian company, the first batteries will be installed right here in Croatia, but we want to expand to the whole of Europe and for our Sinestack to be an export product,” said Karla Janeš Mesarić, from the Rimac Energy division.

All European countries are currently striving for sustainable solutions that reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, and the Austrians have confirmed that Croatian innovation is exceptionally interesting. “It’s really impressive that these battery systems are being produced in Croatia and Europe, from cells, chips to finished models. We in Austria also want to build an efficient energy system from which both citizens and industry can profit,” said Andreas Buchner from the Austrian company Neoom.

“Our company develops technology for energy storage from old batteries, so we aren’t Rimac’s competitors. We want to expand our partnerships and have synergy with top technologies from Croatia”, added Alexander Muller from e.battery systems.

The new Rimac battery system and its accompanying technology will enable a faster transition to clean and sustainable energy as we rush to save the Earth on a global scale.

“Here in Croatia, we actually have what the whole of Europe is currently looking for. Energy storage is undoubtedly important. All renewable energy sources and their excess must be stored in times when there is no sun and wind, and it’s precisely because of that that this battery is crucial,” explained Maja Pokrovac, Director of Renewable Energy Sources of Croatia.

The production of this innovative new Rimac battery system will heat up next year and will be ready to enter the European Union’s enormous single market.

Blooming Croatian ingenuity will thus become the main competitor to no less than the Americans and Chinese when it comes to the cost-effective production of battery systems.
