As batteries become more extended across all applications, battery second life or re-purposing is gaining traction. This adds another degree of mobility to batteries. Not only do they move with the person/mobile/vehicle during operation, but also after their life in that application ends. Then they can be re-purposed for other less demanding applications, such as residential or buildings. As batteries move in and out of applications as their performance degrades, they show an interesting mobility and life cycle analysis which presents better environmental solutions, lower costs and new opportunities.
