GM studies what to do after Volt batteries reach end of life

GM and ABB Corp have signed an agreement that will have the two working together to re-use the batteries from the Volt for other renewable energy sources. Specifically the batteries are being looked at for improving the effectiveness of wind and solar power generation.

Presumable the batteries would be used to store the power generated by these methods. The companies are collaborating to find out how to use the 16kWh batteries that the Volt uses can be used once they are no longer appropriate for use in customer vehicles.

The companies are also studying grid load management using the batteries to store power to be used at peak times, backup power supplies for communities, and allowing industry to store power using the batteries when power is the cheapest and then use that power when costs are the highest.
