This unique energy storage project demonstrates the first application of large scale energy storage (100 kW/ 180 kWh) using repurposed electric vehicle (EV) batteries, and the benefits and synergism of energy storage and EVs. This offers a low cost alternative for energy storage through reduced battery cost, while at the same time reducing overall cost for electric vehicles, by creating a secondary market for EV batteries.
