Default Used vehicle batteries may help power Manitoba

Toronto, Ontario – Used batteries from electric vehicles could be used to store electricity from renewable systems such as wind and solar power through a stationary battery system in Manitoba.

Lithium-ion battery company Electrovaya has signed a contract to develop, construct and demonstrate a utility-sized stationary battery system using end-of-life electric vehicle packs. The system will be implemented at the Manitoba HVDC Research Centre facility, a subsidiary of Manitoba Hydro.
The project, which will include the University of Manitoba, is part of a $7.6 million project let by Electrovaya, with major funding from the federal government’s Clean Energy Fund and Manitoba Hydro.

“This project will give us insight into the complete reuse of lithium-ion batteries,” said Dr. Sankar Das Gupta, CEO of Electrovaya. “Our hope is that utilities will be able to take advantage of the significant number of used batteries that will come into the market after the large-scale introduction of plug-in electric vehicles. By making the end product reusable by utility companies, we address two problems. First, lithium-ion batteries become an even more environmentally sustainable product. And two, we help utility companies make wind and solar energy generation as reliable as hydro, nuclear and coal.”
