Second-life batteries are coming from end-of-life (EoL) traction batteries of electric vehicles (EV) (either fully electric or hybrid). They are very dense energetically even when they reach the end of their first life which is a boon because they can be turned towards less-energy demanding applications but also a curse in that they are, intrinsically, risk-heavy contraptions. Thus, how do the companies that are in the second-life batteries supply chain deal with that?
CIRCUSOL partners developed a vision on service-based models enabling local, circular power in a future ecosystem.
CIRCUSOL partners from LUND University attended New Business Models conference.
Partners from Bern University of Applied Sciences (BUAS) share their insights on the second life for batteries and storage.
