2023 – A year in the limelight

As we prepare to wrap up the year, we take a look at how Brill Power made the news in 2023 and share our exclusive outlook on the EV market for 2024.

21st December 2023, Oxford, UK – Recently, Dr Andy Palmer CMG, who joined us as chairperson in August (see announcement in Reuters Business here), shared his views with Reuters about the need to strategize the transition to electric vehicles by focusing on affordable vehicles amidst the rise of living costs. The article was published on Reuters Business.

EV Magazine - 2024 outlook

We also offered EV Magazine an exclusive outlook to the electric vehicles market with our CCO, Peter Freedman explaining that major automakers are “redirecting their focus towards competitively priced Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs).” To understand what 2024 may look like for the EV market, head to EV Magazine for the full interview.

The launch of our new product, the BESA BP6 X1 was announced in this article from tech.eu, as well as in EE World online, Battery Power Tips and EE Power among others. Our new technology unlocks battery potential for large scale applications by extending system life, reducing capex and improving return on investment for operators and developers.

If you’ve missed the announcement earlier in the year about our installation at events venue Bronllys Hall in Wales, watch this great interview of our CEO and co-founder, Christoph Birkl by ITV Wales News.

Christoph also participated in the Unreasonable Impact World Forum organised by Unreasonable and Barclays in London in November. This year’s theme was ‘Innovation at scale: Empowering the world’s problem solvers’. The event is a gathering of growth-stage ventures that are tackling social and environmental challenges. Companies working on solving the most pressing challenges profitably are introduced to a diverse community of mentors and investors who will accelerate their growth through funding, ideation and collaboration.
