Murata Electronics will supply its FORTELION battery cells to Yotta Energy’s panel-level energy storage solution.
Murata’s lithium-iron-phosphate FORTELION battery cells are integrated within Yotta’s solar panel-level solution SolarLEAF to deliver safe lithium-based energy storage to solar projects. Yotta’s PV-coupled technology not only enhances FORTELION’s features, but significantly reduces the thermal runaway risk. The companies have teamed up to develop SolarLEAF units that have been deployed in technology demonstrations across the United States and in Australia.
“Murata’s long-standing commitment to innovation extends to supporting the promising start-ups who are developing ground-breaking technologies. We are very pleased to deepen our relationship with Yotta and excited about having a hand in accelerating SolarLEAF’s mass market adoption,” said John Roberts, Business Development Manager, Murata Americas.
“We are proud to be working with Murata Electronics,” said Yotta Energy CEO, Omeed Badkoobeh. “Our patented thermal technology ensures that Murata’s FORTELION cells stay within an optimal working temperature even under extreme weather conditions. Additionally, Murata’s FORTELION cells showed no signs of flaming when tested to UL 9540A, which is a key differentiator for our PV-Coupled™ technology,” said Badkoobeh.
Murata’s FORTELION battery cells combined with Yotta’s advanced thermal management enhance the overall lifecycle and performance of energy storage systems, especially when compared to traditional centralized solutions. The collaboration between Murata and Yotta Energy also addresses the growing demand for solar + storage solutions that provide new business models, additional revenue streams, and clean energy for building owners.
