In projects for the California Energy Commission and National Renewable Energy Laboratory, TSRC is assessing the prospects for secondary use of lithium-ion plug-in electric vehicle batteries, focusing on the concept of “re-purposing” the batteries for post-vehicular use in stationary grid-services applications. The projects, which build upon previous work performed during the CEFIS project, identify key opportunities and markets for secondary use of batteries, define protocols for their re-purposing, and interface with technical and utility partners to further define battery energy storage system features and potential synergies with renewable energy. On March 7, 2011, the TSRC Plug-In Electric Vehicle Battery Second Life Workshop took place in Berkeley.
