Repowering the Grid with Used EV Batteries

Ninety-five percent of energy for transport comes from fossil fuels, but that is changing as the market for electric vehicles (EVs) expands. With a growing number of used EV batteries becoming available for reuse, Connected Energy is building E-STOR, a solution that uses second-life Renault EV batteries for grid-scale electricity storage. Such storage is playing an greater role in the wider grid, with governments and companies pushing its development thanks to its ability to save costs and support renewables. The units can also be connected to EV fast-charging stations to help scale that technology.
