Unlocking the value in second-life electric vehicle batteries

Unlocking the value in second-life electric vehicle batteries

Oct 16, 2018 Worldwide
With global electric vehicle sales hitting 4 million this summer, increasing attention has been paid to the end-of-life issues of EV batteries. Recycling the batteries to recover the raw materials seems to be the default solution. However, after their first life as powertrain for electric cars, the batteries could still hold 70-80% of their initial capacity which can be further utilised in second-life applications such as stationary energy storage before being recycled.
