We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Li-ion batteries can still be useful as low-cost energy storage after their first use in electric vehicles.
The research project LibforSecUse aims to develop secure procedures and supporting metrological infrastructures to measure Li-ion batteries residual capacity.
Such procedures are needed to test if it is economically and ecologically reasonable to use large numbers of used Li-ion batteries as energy storage.
