Lithium-ion battery maker EnerDel is trying to broaden its sales into the secondary-battery-storage market as a way to help give the struggling company a second life of its own.
Coda Holdings, parent company of the Los Angeles-based electric-vehicle maker Coda Automotive, is launching a division specializing in energy storage as the company looks to cash in on what many believe will be a rapidly growing market for secondary use of electric-vehicle batteries.
Nissan North America and ABB, the world's biggest maker of power-transmission equipment, have announced an agreement to test used lithium-ion electric-vehicle batteries – such as those in the Nissan Leaf battery-electric vehicle – for possible energy storage uses for utility companies and community power sources.
