Enabling the re-used battery revolution
Repack's mission is to make energy storage accessible and streamlined for use in the home by re-purpsoing second life electric vehicle batteries. The RePack system provides a modular plug-and-play infrastructure which allows for a range of energy storage applications, including reducing peak energy demand, increasing self consumption of solar energy and supporting off-grid systems.
K8 has worked together with RePack to develop the casing for this battery infrastucture, with the aim of creating a unit which can proudly fit into the user's home or off-grid cabin. K8 developed a range of concepts with the aim of creating a unique, modern and attractive aesthetic which can seamlessly fit into any home setting. Additionally, the team wanted to develop a concept which would allow RePack to stand out as a brand and distinugish themselves against the often generic, characterless home storage systems which currently exist on the market.
The chosen design consists of a brushed metal upper section which houses the controls, with a perforated metal base for ventilation. A selection of colourways allows the user to choose a unit which best suits their style. By utilising second-life EV batteries, RePack estimates to have a 95% lower carbon footprint than systems based on new batteries. We are excited to see development and implentation of RePack's work in the future!
