Big Vision: Spiers New Technologies remanufactures high-performance batteries for electric car
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — Dirk Spiers, president of Spiers New Technologies Inc., has a compelling vision for Oklahoma, for energy and the automotive world.
Spiers’ new company performs battery life cycle management of advanced battery storage packs. Working with electric car manufacturers, Spiers New Technologies grades and remanufactures used high-performance batteries to go back into electric cars like the Nissan Leaf or the Chevy Volt, or to become energy storage systems that holds excess energy from renewable energy sources, like solar, to provide a constant source of power when the sun is not shining.
“There are more and more electric cars on the road,” Spiers said, “Even with car companies building more frugal gasoline-engine cars, driving the electric car is a better experience. You have instant torque. It is quiet, it is sophisticated, and you never have to go to the gasoline pump. People who drive electric cars don’t go back.”
