Researchers convert used car batteries into units that could power farms in the developing world

Researchers at WMG, University of Warwick, have found a way not just to recycle used electric vehicle batteries, but repurpose them as small energy storage systems (ESS) for off grid locations in developing countries or isolated communities. The repurposed units, each containing approximately 2kWh of energy capacity, will be able to power a small shop, a farm holding, or multiple residential homes.
