BMW i Ventures announces investment in Battery Startup Our Next Energy.


BMW i Ventures today announced an investment in Our Next Energy Inc. (ONE), a Michigan-based energy storage solutions company working to develop longer-range, lower-cost batteries for electric vehicles. .

?? Our Next Energy strives to fundamentally reinvent the battery while focusing on sustainability, safety and cost; three key factors that will help accelerate the development and adoption of battery electric vehicles? said Baris Guzel, partner at BMW i Ventures. ?? We are convinced that Our Next Energy has the potential to truly transform the space, and we couldn’t be more excited to join their journey. ??

ONE demonstrated two proprietary technologies ?? the first, called “Aries”, uses lithium iron phosphate (LFP) chemistry in an advanced cell-to-package architecture, achieving very high cell-to-package ratios and energy density at the system level. This translates into increased battery range and lower costs while eliminating nickel and cobalt based chemicals. The second, nicknamed ?? Gemini, ?? uses ONE’s proprietary energy and chemistry management system in a dual battery runtime extension architecture.

?? BMW i Ventures has a proven track record of successfully collaborating with startups with cutting edge technology to shape future mobility, ?? said Mujeeb Ijaz, CEO and Founder of Our Next Energy. ?? We are excited to collaborate with Baris and his team as we work to demonstrate our core technologies. ??

Our Next Energy will use the investment to increase production of its first products.
