SECOND-LIFE BATTERIES – A GAMECHANGER FOR THE INDUSTRY?
RECYCLE, REUSE & REPURPOSE TO REDUCE UPFRONT COST & BATTERY WASTE
Even though Li-Ion batteries on average have a lifetime of 8-10 years, they still have significant capacity remaining for alternative uses. Finding secondary uses for the EV batteries can not only reduce up-front cost for the OEM but also provide benefits to consumers and utilities, including demand charge management, renewable energy integration and regulation energy management. This presentation is designed to deliver insight on cutting-edge processes that provide a sustainable solution to the tackle the imminent problem of battery recycling and manage the wave of retiring batteries
> Learn how to design EVs with second-life applications in mind> Understand industry-wide second life and recycling safety standards> Examine the path and process required to avoid mass disposal of batteries through unique recycling solutionsMartin Dowson, Head of Battery Systems & Engineering, Warwick Manufacturing Group
