Redeploying 2nd Life EV/ HEV Batteries for Renewable Energy Applications

Cranfield event highlights benefits

Release date: 04/09/2012

CO2 emissions legislation is shaping a transport future with increased levels of electrification within the powertrain. The high purchase price and recycling costs of lithium-ion batteries will potentially create a sustainable market for the redeployment of these batteries when they have reached their vehicle end of life.

In collaboration with GoodWolfe Energy, Cranfield University has assessed the technical and commercial feasibility of reusing retired battery systems to support new sources of renewable energy in grid, off-grid and SmartGrid applications.The dissemination event aims to bring together key stakeholders from the transport and electrical power and energy storage industries.

The key findings from this TSB funded project will be presented including an overview of the commercial opportunities, new markets and novel technology solutions that are available to the industry. Register below to discover how your organisation could benefit from these opportunities.

Date: Wed 12th Sept 2012

Time: 9am - 1pm
Venue: Martell House, University Way, Cranfield, Bedfordshire, MK43 0TR
