Gearing up for power on wheels: what will be the true impact of e-mobility on stationary energy storage? Part 3: Second-life batteries

EV batteries degrade over time, leading to storage capacity loss and range constraints – eventually rendering them unsuitable for further use in cars. However, they can still be suitable for less intensive or critical stationary storage applications, and can be repurposed in what is referred to as the “second life” of a battery.

Gearing up for power on wheels: what will be the true impact of e-mobility on stationary energy storage? Part 2: Battery buffered charging stations

Adding a battery to an electric vehicle charging station can help to “buffer” the power required from the grid, thus avoiding peaks and related grid constraints or costly charges. Consequently, additional demand for stationary storage is triggered – but what needs to be considered to successfully seize this new market opportunity?
