A “Second Life” for Lithium-ion Battery Modules
Gain insight on results of TÜV SÜD's evaluation of electric vehicle battery modules (BEVs) and their feasibility in "second life" applications.
Preliminary results suggest that used BEV battery modules may possess sufficient energy storage capacity to provide backup capacity for residential systems such as those intended to store electrical energy generated from photovoltaic (PV) solar panels.
These findings are currently being evaluated under real world conditions in the "Efficiency House Plus" experiment in Germany, where a unit comprised of used BEV battery modules has been installed to store energy generated by the house’s solar panel installation.
