Green Car Congress
DECEMBER 10, 2018
Volvo Buses is participating in a research project in which used electric bus batteries are used as solar energy storage units. Batteries from electric bus route 55 in Gothenburg, Sweden are being used for solar energy storage in a second-life application. The reuse and recycling of batteries is a key issue as increasing numbers of cities plan transition to electrically powered transport. IRIS is a Light House project, financed by EU HORIZON 2020.
