Centrica Business Solutions has partnered with the United States Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) on a trial that aims to explore the integration of multiple energy storage technologies, including second life batteries from electric vehicles.
Working from the NREL’s Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF), the research team will develop and demonstrate how hybrid battery storage technology could help tackle a variety of challenges to the grid including renewable intermittency and emergency back-up power.
The project will also use Centrica’s proprietary battery storage and control systems to manage new and second-life batteries as a single unit, which can then be used to bolster the infrastructure to support commercial electric vehicle charging.
