Know Our
History

Next Thing products have raised 2m+ on Kickstarter in computing, hardware, and vision. The team is currently focused on how hardware and software can improve energy technology.

We provide affordable, modular, safe, and easy-to-install batteries for the individual. Our batteries start small to save you pennies per day, but our modular addition system makes it easy to power all the way up to a complete, reliable energy solution for your home or office for a week.

We provide software designed for the individual and the community, all while saving the average home-owner money.  Eventually, we will make enterprise solutions, starting with manufacturing, and eventually enabling communities to create localized power grids.

It is our mission to bring power back to the people.

About Our Team

Next Bolt executive team is comprised of experts who share their passion for technology and are committed to developing the most powerful battery solution to decentralize energy.

Energy Storage Engineering Advisor

Ahmad Pesaran

After receiving his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from UCLA in 1983 Ahmad Pesaran joined the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Since 1995, he has been working on electric drive vehicles and their various energy storage technologies. He has co-authored more than 100 papers and presentations on energy storage and electric drive vehicles. Ahmad is the coordinator Computer-Aided Engineering for Electric Drive Vehicle Batteries activity for the U.S. Department Energy Storage Program. He is also an active member of the Electrochemical Energy Storage Technical Team (USCAR and DOE partnership) and several of its workgroups. He has won many NREL and external awards including a 2013 R&100 Awards for the development of Isothermal Battery Calorimeters. In 2016, he received an R&D 100 Award for a Battery Internal Short Circuit Device that used as a research tool to investigate the merits of materials and design features to combat internal short circuits due to latent flaws. He is also the NREL technical program manager for DOE/VTO’s Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Prize.

What Others are Saying about Next Bolt Batteries

We are nearly off the grid and looking for a battery storage has a reasonable ROI rather than wearing out before the ROI period is over.

Also made in America and from sustainable materials is a key factor. Can’t wait to see the product come to market

We need a battery technology that is less toxic, cheaper to produce, and not dependent on foreign sources.
