About us

From the gravel pit to High Voltage Energy Storage

Made in Austria

The battery energy storage company xelectrix Power GmbH was founded in 2016 by brothers Alexander and Dominik Hartl and Christian Deutschbauer. The initial idea of Hybrization of diesel generators was born out of first-hand experience that diesel generators are often operating very uneconomically and increasing operating costs dramatically. This led to the concept and subsequent production of Energy Storage Systems that leads to fuel reduction, maintenance cost savings and emissions reduction. With the investments of Lansdowne Investment Company and Tansanit in 2020, the company is now able to implement global growth plans. In 2021, Mr. Martin Lehner will join xelectrix Power GmbH as investor and Head of Advisory Board.
