Review of the business case for alternative applications of traction batteries
In 2012, VW had already carried out a project to investigate potential applications of traction batteries. As part of the “GREAT” project (German acronym for ‘”Business potential for re-use and alternative applications of traction batteries”), two main focus applications for the traction batteries were identified and subjected to closer examination: Balancing power supply, and buffer storage for photovoltaic systems.
