Electric vehicle batteries still have an average of 80% original capacity left when retired from the car, but usually end up on shelves as they are much cheaper to store than recycle. These batteries can deliver an additional 7-10 years of service in energy storage applications and there is an expected overwhelming influx of end-of-life lithium batteries as millions of electric vehicles are retired over the upcoming years.
Moment Energy reduces diesel consumption by creating hybrid generator systems and enabling off-grid sites to install solar or wind power systems. With a diesel-battery-hybrid solution, we are able to reduce diesel consumption by up to 40% and generator runtime by up to 90%. With the addition of solar, we can remove the need for diesel altogether.
“We are pleased to have been selected by Moment Energy to participate in a project to prove the effectiveness of used electric vehicle batteries for home energy storage. The installation, testing and ongoing support for our new energy storage system was amazing and the team is committed to ensuring the system meets our needs and interfaces well with our connected solar devices and back up generator. We continue to provide them with real life off grid data and enjoy working with Gabe and his team to further refine and optimize the installation. An unforgettable, valued experience overall. Thanks Moment Energy for helping us meet our goals for energy self-sufficiency and advancing cleaner energy.”
