End-of-Life Management of Lithium-ion Energy Storage Systems
Energy storage system (ESS) deployment is growing, with developers installing more projects at a faster pace. However, only a handful have yet to manage ESS facilities at the end of a system’s life. This new white paper from ESA describes the current status of Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery reuse and recycling opportunities, and explains how the energy storage industry may be able to adopt some of the lessons learned from the management of an increasing stock of used electric vehicle (EV) batteries. The paper also outlines various EV and ESS initiatives to improve the management of the Li-ion battery life cycle.
