    Southern Research, NICE Team to Repurpose Used EV Batteries as Energy Storage Systems

    Southern Research and the National Institute of Clean and Low-Carbon Energy (NICE) are collaborating on a project to transform retired electric vehicle batteries into energy storage systems for offices and factories. Under the partnership, the Birmingham, Alabama-based research organization will provide critical testing services to assist NICE to develop stationary power systems using very low cost, retired EV battery packs for the U.S. market.

    1. Each old EV battery has many different factors that affect the overall performance and life cycle of an energy storage system. No two batteries are alike. NICE's technology solves the problems associated with using old EV batteries; it is a breakthrough.
    2. Collaborating with a world-class research organization like NICE will expand our capabilities in an area experiencing rapid growth.
    3. There is a large potential market for this, and if you can feed that demand with energy storage systems that use retired batteries, it's doubly beneficial.
