EV charging on highways in Belgium and Germany with second-life batteries

EV charging on highways in Belgium and Germany with second-life batteries

UK-based Connected Energy and Groupe Renault have installed two quick-charge stations based on the innovative E-STOR energy storage technology on highways in Belgium and Germany. Drivers. The E-STOR technology developed by Connected Energy uses second-life batteries from Renault electric vehicles. With the E-STOR system, the batteries are recharged at low power, and the stored energy is then released at high power. It thus becomes possible to offer electric vehicle charging services in locations where constructing a high power connection to the power grid would be very costly. Economical and simple to install, E-STOR will contribute to the development of a network of quick-charging stations in Europe. “We are developing a range of E-STOR systems, some, like the two installed in Belgium and Germany are designed specifically to enable lower cost more sustainable electric veh...
