Nissan has announced a new plan to recycle old batteries from its Nissan Leaf electric vehicle and use the batteries for energy storage.
Nissan has teamed up with Green Charge Networks, a company which provides commercial energy storage and the two companies will recycle batteries from Nissan Leaf vehicles to use for energy storage.
“A lithium-ion battery from a Nissan LEAF still holds a great deal of value as energy storage, even after it is removed from the vehicle, so Nissan expects to be able to reuse a majority of LEAF battery packs in non-automotive applications,” said Brad Smith, director of Nissan’s 4R Energy business in the U.S. “Nissan looks forward to working with Green Charge Networks to get second-life vehicle batteries into the hands of customers who can realize benefits that include improved sustainability and lower energy costs.”
