Grinntech specialises in lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles and energy storage systems along with its proprietary IoT-enabled battery management system (BMS) and connectivity.

This announcement marks the transformation of Grinntech from an IIT-Madras incubated start-up to a funded commercial enterprise, enabling rapid adoption of electric vehicle (EV) technologies, the release stated.

"It was always our dream to create a technologically advanced lithium–ion battery product line that was built-to-cost for Indian conditions along with its production system. We are hopeful that we will catch the fast-growing wave for EV products by Indian customers," Nikhilesh Mishra and Puneet Jain, co-founders of Grinntech, said.

The start-up has automobile industry veterans such as Ashok Leyland's former vice-chairman V Sumantran and Cognizant's co-founder and former vice-chairman Lakshmi Narayanan as its investors and members of its board of directors, as per the release.

Sumantran said EVs are rapidly gaining acceptance globally and in India, and particularly at a time when the country has articulated a priority for self-reliance in critical EV technologies.

Stating that the future of energy is in renewables with significant potential for high growth, Narayanan said digital technologies such as IoT and data analytics play a crucial role in enabling companies with newer business models to provide the much-needed connectedness and high performance, among others.
