The reuse of EV batteries is already a reality. Already today many more EV batteries are reused instead of being recycled. Backup power, energy storage systems and support for EV charging are the most common applications.

Tutorial: Seizing the opportunities of second life batteries

London, 28 November

  • One-day tutorial about the potential of second life batteries

  • Focus on learning and discussions – only 30 participants

  • Learn about volumes, applications, business models, cost structure and liabilities

In 2025 more than 50 GWh of batteries from electric cars, buses and other vehicles will reach their end of life in the world. However, most of these batteries will still be good for use in other applications such as energy storage systems or for backup power. This is an enormous opportunity for both the old and the new users of the batteries.

In this tutorial Hans Eric Melin from Circular Energy Storage will shed light on both opportunities and challenges of the use of second life batteries. Everything from available volumes to business models and most promising applications.

The tutorial is designed as a small and intimate event, with the attendees placed in a U-shaped seating to stimulate questions, discussion and exchange of ideas. Of that reason we have limited the number of participants to 30.

The tutorial is aimed for professionals in large organisations which either are using or placing large volumes of batteries on the market such as fleet operators, car and bus makers, as well as potential users of second life batteries such as energy companies, EV charging operators or telecom and data center operators.
