in cooperation with

The strong demand for electronic portable applications and the vision of a “green and clean” world drives the strong demand for portable energy storage solutions. The strong demand for batteries is responsible for nearly a 10% yearly average production increase rate, in the last decade. Many companies develop new batteries, fuel-cells and Super-Capacitors promising technologies. Battery users, developers, assemblers, designers and manufacturers invest a lot of resources and efforts to build the optimal energy storage solution from all existing technologies and raw materials. Shmuel De-Leon Energy, Ltd. identified the needs and developed unique knowledge tools and services helping the industry to design optimal energy storage solutions.These unique knowledge tools and services save our customers efforts, time and costs.


The Batteryuniversity GmbH was founded in early 2008. We have made it our aim to support manufacturers, developers and users of batteries in their daily work with extensive technical information and individual services. Main emphases of Batteryuniversity GmbH are conducting standard-based or customer specific test rows in our own laboratory, technical analysis, general guidance for standards, development of battery test devices as well as the organization of in-house training courses, seminars and expert forums. As an independent test laboratory for batteries of all technologies, we offer a wide service spectrum around quality and safety checks. We test and certify your batteries for all safety, utility and transportation needs in accordance with the legal requirements and standard specifications.


BMZ GmbH develops and produces high-tech battery systems for automotive, e-mobility and storage, medical and industrial applications as well a power and garden tools which are built into a wide variety of products from well-known brands worldwide. The product range includes electric vehicles, e-bikes, energy storage systems, portable medical equipment, electric pruning shears, drills and cordless screwdrivers. BMZ’s technicians and engineers are your competent partners working closely with you. BMZ offers you ready-made concepts or develops a new solution with you. BMZ implements your project from an idea to the successful product. BMZ makes custom battery packs: standard cells and customised products from single cell batteries to intelligent battery packs. The batteries can be built into customised cases or cases developed by BMZ. BMZ provides cells with the customer’s label or consumer products across all technologies. Battery packs by BMZ are subject to a continuous optimisation process. To this end, BMZ carries out technical analyses of already developed battery packs in order to implement new or improved technologies with higher capacity and performance.
