As electric vehicles become more prevalent on today’s roads, there is a question as to what to do with the lithium-ion batteries after the vehicles have reached end-of-life. One proposed solution is to reuse the batteries as energy storage for a home to provide cost savings via energy shifting, increased energy independence, and back-up power. However, several studies have shown that the economics of such use cases can be challenging. Thus, we propose the addition of another use case; providing charging of an electric vehicle.
