Second life batteries

About the project

The main objective of this project is to investigate the possibility to reuse Li-ion electric vehicle (EV) batteries which have reached End-of-Life (EoL) in their primary application in a so called second life. Reuse of these battery cells will include cycling with new user profiles to reduce further ageing, maximising the value of reuse. The project aims to build novel understanding of the safety and life of used Li-ion batteries and develop cost-optimal application of these batteries in the future Norwegian energy system.


The project is funded by UNIK and IFE.
