Second Life EV Battery in Home Solar & Storage Setup

Post by MelbourneUniStudents »

Hi all!

We're a team of four Masters of Mechanical Engineering students who were introduced to the forum by @jonescg and @Bryce

For our final year Capstone Project at the University of Melbourne, we’re conducting a Life Cycle Assessment of a lithium-ion electric vehicle battery repurposed for a second-life in a small-scale energy storage system. We're going to be comparing the financial and environmental impacts of a second life battery and a new, off the shelf battery such as a Powerwall.

We're looking for anyone who is using a second life (used) lithium-ion electric vehicle battery (from a car - Nissan Leaf or similar) as part of a home solar & storage setup

If you've got any information, we'd love to have a chat. Cheers!
