  • Exro has entered the final stage of certification requirements for its Cell Driver™ and anticipates completion in Q4 2023, which is to be followed by the start of series production and initial customer deliveries in Q4 2023.
  • Exro was recently granted patent protection related to its cell level control of batteries which results in superior charging, better depth of charge, enhanced safety, and increase of cell longevity.
  • Management will host its next monthly 'Look Inside' livestream event for shareholders today at 2:30 PM ET. Register via: LINK.

CALGARY, AB, Aug. 22, 2023 /CNW/ - Exro Technologies Inc. (TSX: EXRO), (OTCQB: EXROF) (the "Company" or "Exro"), a leading clean-technology company that develops new generation power-control electronics that expand the capabilities of electric motors and batteries, today announced another milestone achievement with certification of its Cell Driver battery modules to the Underwriters Laboratories' (UL) 1973 standard.

Cell Driver UL Certification Update

"We are thrilled to progress our Cell Driver to near the finish line of UL certification," said Exro CEO Sue Ozdemir. "To mitigate the effects of climate change, energy storage is an important component in the ecosystem required for a sustainable electrified future. Through our expertise in power electronics, Exro delivers real-world solutions that change how the world consumes energy. Our patented technology will provide commercial and industrial applications with high-quality, safe, and reliable energy while alleviating stress on existing grid infrastructure."

UL 1973 is an industry standard for stationary energy storage systems which confirms Exro's modules' quality, resilience, and ability to operate safely and effectively in a variety of conditions. With successful completion of UL 1973, the Cell Driver has moved to the final phase of testing requirements for UL certification. UL certification is required prior to connecting the Cell Driver to the utility grid in North America.

Previously anticipated for late Q3 2023, Exro now expects completion of UL certification in Q4 2023, dependent on scheduling at UL's certification laboratories. Certification will be followed by the start of series production for Cell Driver beginning with in-field pilots and initial customer deliveries in Q4 2023. In parallel with the UL testing and certification process, Exro continues commercialization and marketing efforts in alignment with system certification. The Company's network of channel sales partners continues to respond to a high volume of quotes on initial applications with first pilots and purchase orders targeted for later this year.

Key Patent Award

Exro is now patent protected in relation to a key differentiating feature within its Cell Driver Energy Storage System (ESS) with the recent grant of patent #US11,708,005 B2, "Systems and Methods for Individual Control of a Plurality of Battery Cells". Exro's patent supports cell level control, resulting in superior charging, deeper discharge rates, enhanced safety, and continuous operation. This enables commercial and industrial buildings to manage energy consumption, safeguard against grid outages, store energy produced on-site, and realize benefits through peak shaving and load shifting.

Cell Driver™ is also equipped with Exro's proprietary Battery Control System™, that actively manages cells based on their State-of-Charge (SoC) and State-of-Health (SoH).

Case Study

Exro recently conducted a real-world case study with a California-based restaurant chain to demonstrate how the integration of Exro's fully-integrated commercial and industrial energy storage system can provide significant benefits to a business: Exro-Cell-Driver-Stand-Alone-Case-Study.pdf
