Kreisel cooperates with Shell

Kreisel Electric develops battery technologies for e-mobility which are globally in demand. Now the company has launched a partnership with the British-Dutch oil company Shell. The joint goal is to ensure better cooling of the battery when driving or charging. For this purpose, Kreisel's lithium-ion battery module technology will be combined with Shell's thermal management fluid. In turn, this should extend the lifetime of the batteries and the range of the electric vehicles.

Battery efficiency is closely linked to the energy required to either heat up or cool down the battery so that it reaches its optimal operating temperature. According to the company, using the Kreisel and Shell solution delivers improved energy efficiency of up to 28 percent for the battery cooling when compared to conventional side wall cooling. As less energy is wasted to maintain the battery's optimal operating temperature, the stronger battery performance can result in improved range relative to battery size, as well as a longer lifetime and superior safety when compared to other current conventional lithium-ion batteries. Shell has defined the goal of becoming climate neutral by the year 2050. The partnership with Kreisel focusing on research, development and sales is designed to help Shell achieve this target. Kreisel successfully relies on the lithium-ion technology integrated into electric-powered carts, rollers and bikes as well as passenger cars, buses, utility vehicles, ships and aircraft. Recently Kreisel equipped 30 double-decker buses in London with batteries.

Kreisel Electric headquartered in Upper Austria was founded in 2014 by the three brothers Johann, Markus and Philipp Kreisel, generating revenue of about € 20 million and employing a workforce of 140 people. In 2017, Patrick Knapp-Schwarzenegger, the nephew of Arnold Schwarzenegger, acquired a stake in Kreisel together with a group of strategic partners.
