SAN DIEGO / GLOBENEWSWIRE / February 28, 2023 / KULR Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE American: KULR) (the “Company” or “KULR”), a leading energy management platform company accelerating the global transition to a sustainable electrification economy, today announced it secured a $2.68 million follow-on contract as the exclusive supplier of its patented and proprietary fail-safe Passive Propagation Resistant (“PPR”) battery solutions for a stationary and mobile lithium-ion battery power system manufacturer (the “Customer”). After extensive design and testing efforts, this order represents KULR’s single largest PPR deployment order in a stationary or mobile energy product to date. This is a follow-on order as the Customer prepares to scale towards the full automation of its battery assembly operations, whilst KULR expands its automated PPR component manufacturing in North America.

The Customer relied on KULR’s PPR solution in designing, testing, and meeting the stringent UL 9540 (Field-Listed with Energy Storage Systems) and UL 9540A (Cell/Module/Pack-Tested) certification of its stationary lithium-ion battery pack systems, which in turn led to rigorous testing and passing of the safety threshold established by the Canadian Standards Association Group (“CSA”), an independent testing body that is a leader in standards development, testing, inspection and certification. 

The Customer’s lithium-ion battery systems have been authorized as safe to use in occupied buildings. The systems can be configured to provide from 50 KWh (“Kilowatt-hours”) to 5 MWh (“Megawatt-hours”) of distributed energy storage at the point-of-use where applications range from medical and research complexes, residential and commercial buildings, to remote data centers and manufacturing facilities. The systems also provide fully renewable mobile energy solutions for construction equipment, waste disposal, last-mile delivery, as well as other portable industrial markets.

KULR’s PPR design solutions enable energy storage systems a longer life cycle and allow completely self-contained safe battery solutions to meet the demands of the heavy construction and manufacturing sector while opening new opportunities for KULR with industrial customers seeking to buy and store electricity during less-expensive off-peak times – offsetting the need for gas-powered generators as backup power. The state of California will require portable gas-powered generators to be zero-emissions by 2028, potentially another boon for KULR.

“We are pleased to be the exclusive supplier of fail-safe stationary storage battery solutions for this Customer’s significant buildout,” said KULR CEO Michael Mo. “The reality is that there will be many more projects like this one coming to market soon, especially with the Inflation Reduction Act amplifying demand for safe and clean stationary energy storage. We know solutions that promote battery safety are of great importance for utility and industrial energy storage providers and it’s our belief that KULR offers one of the safest and most cost-effective energy storage technologies in the marketplace.”

The stationary battery storage market is set to surpass USD $870 billion by 2032, according to a research report by Global Market Insights Inc. published in late 2022.

This latest Customer order follows the recent announcement that KULR commenced Phase 2 development of its PPR battery systems for Lockheed Martin Corporation’s (NYSE: LMT) Advanced Energy Systems. As KULR continues to collaborate with entities such as the United States Department of Defense (“DoD”), NASA, and major defense manufacturers, KULR is steadily leveraging its thermal design expertise beyond government contracts, rechanneling its PPR applications from military purposes to commercial enterprise, for uses such as energy storage systems, e-mobility, and cloud computing.
