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.
