Based in the United Kingdom, Connected Energy uses electric vehicle batteries, at the end of their in-car first life, to create energy storage systems.
These combine as many batteries as are needed for tailor-made solutions with capacity ranging from less than 100 kilowatt hours up to 15 megawatt hours or more.
Connected Energy’s E-STOR, a stationary energy storage technology that uses electric vehicle batteries repurposed as industrial scale battery energy storage, which effectively increases the batteries life by 5-10 years, is deployed whenever flexible, modular electricity storage systems are needed.
With E-STOR commercial scale energy storage systems, end users can generate new revenues, save energy costs, and make better use of renewable energy generation. The aggregated battery systems can help stabilize the existing electricity grid or be used to build autonomous microgrids.
At construction sites, which require high levels of power for short periods, they compare favourably to generator systems whose use is limited by emissions restrictions and noise regulations.
