Energy storage going underground

With the increasing pace of electrification, energy storage is becoming a natural part of energy systems. Utilized to store energy in electric vehicles, to increase small scale solar electricity self-consumption, in microgrids as backup power, as part of a larger power grid for congestion management or to manage variations in renewable energy production. There are multiple applications for energy storage.

BatteryLoop – giving old batteries new life

Transport accounts for about 1/5 of all CO2 emissions worldwide. Electric cars are a part of the solution, but the batteries are usually not used to their full potential. In fact, the batteries that are no longer useful in vehicles still have about 80 % capacity left. Swedish company BatteryLoop wants to give the used batteries a second life by using them as energy storage. The solution is smart, sustainable and resource-efficient.

Cling Systems – Optimal Circularity of Batteries

Electrification plays an important role in creating sustainable energy. But the lithium-ion batteries used in cars and other energy systems have a significant ecological footprint and most of the batteries do not get recycled efficiently. Cling Systems is the company that wants to change that. By creating a marketplace for used batteries, more batteries can be reused and recycled, leading to a reduction of emissions in the energy sector.
