Up to ten years of additional use
"By recycling used lithium-ion batteries, their service life can be extended by up to ten years. Valuable resources thus remain in the cycle longer and the very good eco-balance of e-vehicles is further improved," explains Christopher Schöpf, CEO of e.battery systems. Low-voltage batteries are being used for the first time in energy storage systems. The system guarantees 100 percent reliability and reduces material consumption by 70 percent.
"The software-based converter technology enables a kind of 'plug & play' system for large-scale storage systems with low voltage. This means that different on-board batteries can be easily combined in one energy storage system," emphasizes Schöpf. With price savings of more than 30 percent compared to new systems, he sees enormous market potential for the solution. The universal energy storage systems can be easily integrated into existing installations. Production is expected to reach up to 30 megawatt hours as early as next year. Demand is high, as Schöpf explains: "We already have inquiries from all over the world, for example from Germany, Kazakhstan, Senegal and the Philippines.
