The Cell Driver™ is a fully integrated battery energy storage system (BESS) designed to optimize performance and reduce costs for stationary commercial and industrial energy storage applications. Equipped with Exro’s proprietary Battery Control System™ (BCS), the Cell Driver™ offers maximized cell safety, capacity, and lifetime. Enabling businesses to efficiently control their power usage, lower electricity expenses, and improve energy reliability.
The Cell Driver™ case study reveals the significant potential for businesses (such as a full-service restaurant) to reduce their annual electricity bills by integrating Exro's 90kW/192kWh Cell Driver™. The case results show a 25% reduction in electricity demand charges and an overall energy cost reduction of 16%. This proof of Cell Driver™ efficacy invites energy storage suppliers and integrators to partner with us and seize the opportunity to provide superior energy solutions while enhancing their own competitive advantage.
Disclaimer: The depicted load profile and energy storage impact reflect a real-world example specific to San Diego as of May 2023, simulated on Energy Tool Base. Results may vary based on location and individual building parameters. Electricity rates and cost calculations are determined by the current utility rate schedule.

The Exro Cell Driver™ utilizes advanced protection functions for current, temperature, and voltage, delivering unparalleled safety for ESS operation and minimizing the risk of cell-level thermal runaway. This enables the system to electronically isolate defective cells without impacting system operation.
Active cell balancing across the system enables the control of charged and discharged energy based on the cell’s State-of-Charge (SoC) and State-of-Health (SoH) while matching power demand and power quality. This leads to improved safety, performance, and overall system capacity.
The Exro Cell Driver™ introduces an innovative topology for active cell balancing, expertly driving each cell with AC and dynamically adjusting the amperage per second based on the cell's state of charge (SoC) and state of health (SoH). The result is consistently balanced cells and superior matching of power demand and power quality.
During repeated charging and discharging, battery cells can display varying characteristics, leading to overcharging or undercharging of some cells. This affects overall capacity, efficiency, and may cause damage or thermal runaway events. The Exro Cell Driver™ offers a dynamic solution by charging cells based on their health, enhancing the capacity, efficiency, and safety of energy storage systems.
The enhanced control allows the system to increase the lifespan of first-life batteries as well as repurpose second-life EV batteries, prolonging the useful life of rare earth minerals and reducing the environmental impact of electrification.
Unlock the untapped potential of second-life EV batteries by integrating them into Energy Storage Systems (ESS). This innovative repurposing not only dramatically reduces environmental impact by extending battery life cycles but also substantially cuts ESS costs.
