Second life for lithium-ion batteries

Fortum is piloting so-called second-life applications for batteries where the EV batteries are used for stationary energy storages after they are no longer fit for their original purpose.

After a decade or more of use, a lithium-ion battery is no longer suitable for its original purpose. The battery often still retains enough capacity to serve in so-called second-life functions , such as stationary power storages in wind or solar power plants.

We are currently piloting several second-life solutions for used batteries. In India we are developing a leasing system whereby auto rickshaw owners return their used batteries to us for recharging and receive a full battery in return.
