The rapid growth of the market for hybrid and pure electric vehicles (xEV) presents a new challenge on how to manage used EV batteries (Li-ion or NiMH) after they are no longer employed inside vehicles. Can retired batteries be utilized in other less demanding applications before they are disposed of? The answer may lie within emerging microgrids.
