Over 500 BMW i3 battery packs connect to the UK National Grid in latest large energy storage project
The use of electric car battery packs to create large energy storage projects is becoming increasingly popular.
Now, a new one made of BMW i3 battery packs is connecting to the UK National Grid and has become one of the largest to date.
Vattenfall, an important energy company in Europe, unveiled last year a new 2.8 MWh energy storage facility built with batteries from over 100 BMW i3 electric cars.
It was an interesting project since they are using used battery modules from electric vehicles, but now the company has announced a different contract with BMW this week to buy brand new i3 battery packs directly from them for the same reason.
