Optimized Controllers for Second-life Battery Energy Storage Systems

The world’s electricity grids need affordable batteries to store large amounts of energy and allow for increased renewable power sources like wind and solar. Instead of building new batteries from scratch, millions of used batteries from retired electric vehicles can be given a second life on the electricity grids for a lower price and a smaller environmental footprint. This research project will develop a new computer program that can manage large groups of second-life batteries so they work effectively together as a team and even outperform more expensive batteries. Ultimately, this will help make renewable energy more affordable and more sustainable. Partnering with the Lab2Market program will contribute to the development of innovative technologies in Canada.
