"A 25 MWh grid-scale stationary storage system comprising 1,300 recycled
electric vehicle batteries is now fully operational in California.

The project, which is the largest of its kind in the world, has been built by
B2U and is connected to a solar farm.

The company’s patented, EV Pack Storage (EPS) System enables the use of EV
battery packs without reconfiguration in large scale energy storage.

The company says the technology enables EV batteries to be deployed in
large-scale energy storage applications in their original pack casing. This
avoids repurposing costs, significantly reducing levelised cost of storage
(LCOS) for grid-scale compared to systems with new batteries.

The system uses repurposed battery packs from Honda and Nissan electric
vehicles however B2U says that it has successfully tested Model 3 batteries and
that its technology can work with any EV battery."
