    BMW’s Used Battery Power Plant

    BMW Built a Power Plant from Old Electric-Car Batteries; The carmaker is exploring ways to find new life for its spent batteries.

The rate at whichthey currently decline [to where a car’s range would be depleted] puts their lifetime for powering electric vehicles in the neighborhood of eight to 10 years…[BMW’s just-completed grid-scale storage facility in Hamburg, Germany, will use batteries from 100 cars to store 2.8 megawatt-hours of energy and deliver] up to two megawatts of power [to the grid during times of peak demand] at the flip of a switch…” click here for more
