recycling electric car batteries

As automakers continue to fight in the electric car race, some are starting to wonder where the batteries will go once they reach the end of the car\'s service life?
Simply dealing with batteries in some type of landfill doesn\'t help the environment, and certainly won\'t attract automakers or customers.
To address this, several large automakers in the electric vehicle race work with companies that know about power and energy to plan how to recycle and reuse outdated electric vehicle batteries and their energy.
GM announced it will work with ABB, Switzerland, a leader in power and automation technology and the world\'s largest supplier of power grid systems
Use the battery of the Chevrolet Volt.
These companies will develop several pilot projects and 16-kWh lithium-
What do you think of ion batteries-
The battery of the living car can be used to provide the power grid storage system.
During the pilot project, these companies will study renewable energy storage, grid load management
Power and usage time management for the community.
According to Micky Bly, executive director of General Motors electrical systems, even after the end of the car\'s life, the volt\'s battery will have significant capacity to store electrical energy.
This means that after the 8-year or 100,000-mile warranty provided by Volt, the battery can still be used for other purposes if the car\'s battery is recycled.
Therefore, GM\'s ultimate goal through its ABB partnership is to find a cost-
An effective solution that will optimize the entire life cycle of the battery and improve the efficiency of the State Grid.
Another car manufacturer that started studying the possibility of recycling electric batteries is Nissan.
Nissan has set up a joint venture with Sumitomo Corporation to study used lithium. ion batteries.
The joint venture, known as g4 Energy, aims to \"reuse, resell, refilling and repackaging\" batteries that power Nissan Leaf.
The company is expected to conduct demo tests and conduct commercial research as it is working to develop its second business
Service life of lithiumion batteries.
Finally, California electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla Motors, together with national leaders in solar design and installation, SolarCity and the University of California, participated in a research project to investigate the possibility of outdated electric vehicle batteries in Berkeley.
The three companies are developing a system that combines Tesla\'s electric vehicle battery system with SolarCity\'s monitoring platform to produce an advanced power grid
Interactive photovoltaic (PV)
And fixed storage products that can be installed in buildings.
The idea is that the battery storage created will collect excess photovoltaic power that utilities can use instead of using power plants with larger emissions.
So with the race for electric cars going viral, it seems that GM, Nissan and Tesla will also compete in the race for electric car batteries.
Big ideas like renewable energy storage, smart grid and support
Who knows the second one to power a building
The battery life of electric vehicles will end.
