Partners: Future Transport Systems Ltd, Jaguar Land Rover, Videre Global Ltd
The project will research and develop variations on Future Transport Systems' existing E-STOR energy storage system, identifying how it can use a range of 2nd life batteries of different types and states of degradation.
Partners will also research the economics and business cases associated with the use of 2nd life batteries. A key area of research in the project is the use of 2nd life battery storage systems in developing countries and Videre Global, a specialist in smart grid systems in the developing world will assist in determining and testing market requirements.
We will undertake research into the use of 2nd life battery module based systems. Ultimately the project will help accelerate development of the E-STOR technology for high volume enployment.
