Connected Energy to give old Forsee batteries a 2nd Life

Tags: News Article

The French battery manufacturer Forsee Power is cooperating with Connected Energy, a company that builds stationary energy storage systems based on spent electric vehicle batteries. The aim is to recycle Forsee batteries after they have been used in electric buses.

A first joint project with a volume of around 3.5 MWh is planned for the second half of 2023. A second, much larger energy storage system with around 40 MWh is also scheduled to go into operation in the UK from the third quarter of 2024. The batteries promised by Forsee as part of the cooperation will previously be used in e-buses from Iveco Heuliez, Wrightbus and Caetano, among others. When their capacity drops to about 75 to 80 percent, they are no longer suitable for vehicles, but with their considerable residual capacity, they can be used in stationary energy storage systems.
