JERA begins mass-scale storage system project using recycled EV batteries

The demonstration energy storage project will be in cooperation with Toyota.

Japan-based energy producer JERA Co., Inc. has launched a demonstration project for a large-scale energy storage system that recycles electric vehicle drive batteries, with a latent integration into an extra-high-voltage transmission grid.

With technical expertise from Toyota, the project will propel the establishment of a concrete sweep energy storage system that can be connected to the transmission grid – the first-ever reusable energy to be applied in the world.

As electric vehicles (EVs) grow more prominent, lithium-ion and several vehicle batteries are opening opportunities for more secure energy generation in the future.

Through the project, JERA will be able to promote EVs for full domestic reuse and facilitate the technological development for zero carbon emissions and recyclability of used EV batteries.

The demonstration project is one of the many global efforts from JERA to contribute to optimal energy utilisation, for the decarbonisation of energy sources and resource circulation worldwide.
