Nissan is partnering with power management specialists Eaton during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21) to ensure the batteries that power electric vehicles are recycled to alleviate climate change.

Both companies will work together to apply their knowledge of lithium-ion batteries and power electronics to bring reliable, affordable energy storage and control technologies to the market.

The partnership will focus on creating commercially viable energy storage and control centers that will provide a sustainable second life for Nissan's lithium-ion batteries after their automotive usage.

The first module to be deployed will combine second-life LEAF batteries with Eaton’s uninterruptable power supply (UPS) technology and solar PV to create a stand-alone energy storage and control package that will allow customers to manage energy consumption and supply, while connected to, or independent of, the grid.

The storage and control module will offer an affordable, long-term method for harnessing clean energy, further facilitating the deployment of renewable energy and increased grid stability and efficiency.
