NREL's PHEV/EV Li-Ion Battery Secondary-Use Project

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Accelerated development and market penetration of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs) is restricted at present by the high cost of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. One way to address this problem is to recover a fraction of the Li-ion battery's cost via reuse in other applications after it is retired from service in the vehicle, when the battery may still havesufficient performance to meet the requirements of other energy storage applications.
