Our Team

Renewable energy, electrification, and autonomous transportation are three megatrends that define our future as we fight climate change. Renewables reach a tipping point when they become available, reliable, and affordable. My entire career I have pursued the creation of reliable power systems. Our technology now delivers affordable reliability.

infiniRel’s groundbreaking early warning system solves a key problem with renewable energy + electric vehicles: unreliability.

Our world is going electric — increasingly and rapidly — to slow climate change. So while renewable energy and electric vehicles (EVs) are two keys to the global effort toward net-zero, a major risk of electrification is the unreliability of some components. Renewable energy and EVs both rely on a mission-critical component called an inverter, which can fail without warning, blowing up or catching fire. By avoiding failures, we have more power available, more consistently at stable rates.

The inverter transforms direct current (DC) power generated by solar panels, wind turbines or stored in batteries, to alternating current (AC) to power our homes, businesses and EVs. 

  • At clean energy plants, inverter failure means a portion of the plant is shut down, causing thousands of dollars of damage to equipment and loss of revenue. 
  • Dirty energy from non-renewable sources must be combusted to make up the difference
  • EVs will suddenly loose power, causing you to be stranded.

Our infinitely reliable, massively scalable early warning system predicts power electronic failures.

infiniRel’s early warning system is the first of its kind and therefore a game changer. Reliability is critical for long-term success of renewable energy, as we transition to a carbon-neutral world.

Applications:

Utility-scale renewable energy plants

At clean energy plants, ‘infinite reliability’ allows operators to predict when inverters are going to fail and to schedule maintenance on a timely basis. This leads to renewable-energy reliability, availability and affordability for consumers and the grid. We estimate that our system will stop 2,000 metric tons of CO2 per year, per gigawatt hour, from being dumped into the atmosphere — that’s the equivalent to 142 dump trucks full of coal. One gigawatt hour powers 1,600 homes for an entire year.

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), clean energy must triple by 2030 to curb climate change. Today, cost overruns in operation and maintenance budgets run the risk of stalling the growth of new renewable energy plants because of reduced profitability for investors. Our technology will spur this investment, by reducing downtime events by 75% and maintenance costs by 50%.

Microgrids

Microgrids are self-contained energy production systems that are being developed around the world to ensure that communities, schools, hospitals, industrial parks and EV charging stations, have 100% reliable renewable energy at stable prices. infiniRel’s early warning system will be deployed to ensure grid reliability and consumer rate stability.

EV Chargers

Public EV chargers use electronics to fill an EV with DC power from the AC grid. These chargers are built with the same components as utility-scale renewable energy plants such as solar and wind farms, and are plagued by similar availability and reliability challenges when inverters fail.

The second problem is grid infrastructure. In California alone, the state Energy Commission predicts that by 2030, there will be 7.5 million passenger EVs, and a total of 180,000 electric delivery fleet vehicles, semi trucks and buses on the road. Passenger EVs and delivery fleets need to be charged overnight, while semi-trucks will be rapidly charged along the highway. infiniRel will ensure the reliability of the renewable power systems that will meet this need.

EVs

Inverters are used to power the motor of an EV and, like the ‘check engine’ light on a gas-powered car, inifiRel’s early warning system will warn of the amount of time until an inverter will fail, allowing you to drive your EV to the repair shop instead of breaking down on the highway. Our technology will reduce insurance claims and could save lives.

Our predictive technology utilizes AI & IoT.

infiniRel’s Inverter Health Scanner is a hardware-enabled, algorithmically-driven tool that predicts inverter failures. By tapping into the signal structure of each component, infiniRel’s system can tell specifically which are in danger of failing and when, via a customizable dashboard. Like an electrocardiogram (EKG) for your heart, stress signals are used to calculate an overall risk score.

Accelerated and technically validated, we have our first customer and are prepared to go to market.

infiniRel won more than $400,000 in prizes, awards, and grants, including the U.S. Department of Energy sponsored American-Made Solar Challenge in 2020. Recently, we were awarded a $150,000 CalSEED grant from the California Energy Commission. We have a binding pilot test agreement with a well-known globally-expanding energy service provider, and have three additional clients in the pipeline. A voucher from the Department of Energy enabled us to test our system at Sandia National Labs, the technical authority for solar reliability. Future-forward, we'll continue to apply for funding opportunities like CalTestBed, and grants and accelerators for clean technologies.

Utility scale solar farms

One of the most at-risk markets is utility-scale solar farms, where operations teams face major challenges related to the failure of mission-critical components. Unexpected maintenance costs have driven some to bankruptcy, just as the rapid growth of renewable energy markets makes reliability more critical than ever.

Microgrids

Microgrid developers have their finger on the pulse of the renewable energy industry and recognize that infiniRel is the solution to key improvements in reliability and affordability. Through infinRel’s network, introductions have been made to developers and they now are building infiniRel multi-year service contracts into their budgets.

What’s Next?

From there, we’ll move into wind, battery storage and e-mobility/e-transport markets. infiniRel can be indispensable to slowing the negative impacts of climate change.

Europe will be the second target market after the US, due to its growing share in the global solar marketplace and its large base of installed (aged) inverters. Then we’ll expand worldwide to the Asia-Pacific Rim, MENA, and South America.

Once funded: We’re only six months from revenue. 

Projected revenue in 2026: $160 million

infiniRel’s business model is grounded in multi-year Service-Level Agreements, a successful model adapted from the telecom industry, which demonstrated that uptime can be achieved to ‘five nines’ or 99.999%. Every solar plant and microgrid is unique and carries different risks, costs and failure rates, and our tiered pricing - based on our risk analysis of the systems’ production and inverter health - allows customers to build our fixed fees into their maintenance budgets. We maximize our impact by first understanding the customer’s situation, then quoting our solution in $/megawatt, while considering the age and size of the plant.

When our client experiences a gratifying ROI and rapid payback, they are likely to continue with our annual service for the remainder of the system’s lifecycle. It is clear that our service immediately translates to lower operational costs, increased operational stability, and higher revenues. Better margins means more investment in clean energy and lower reliance on the need to burn fossil fuels.

Companies that monitor inverter data are good at aggregating numbers, whereas infiniRel extracts and processes signatures in real time, building its own database through AI, and allowing operators to make informed decisions pre-failure. What’s more, our US and European patents ensure our technology is ahead of the competition.

infiniRel’s team members are veterans from the solar, semiconductor, automotive and telecom industries, who have demonstrated expertise in reliability.

THE FUTURE

A clean tech innovation: Mass EV charging and protection for all who commute in EVs or flying taxis.

Together we can benefit everyone and help our planet stay cool.

Your investment will help us complete testing on our early warning failure system and bring it to commercialization which, in turn, will increase uptime at solar plants and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. After closing initial sales and proving the success of both our technology and our business model, we’ll raise equity to help scale up the business and scale down the size of our early warning system. Then we will enter the e-mobility markets.
