Mercedes-Benz Energy and Beijing Electric Vehicle Intensify Cooperation for Energy Storage Systems

In a new press release the Daimler AG announced the intensified cooperation of its subsidiary Mercedes-Benz Energy with one of the leading Chinese manufacturers of electric vehicles, Beijing Electric Vehicle Co., Ltd. The focus of the cooperation will be on the development and testing of 2nd-life battery storage systems in China. The first jointly implemented 2nd-life energy storage system will be built in Beijing. Gordon Gassmann, CEO of Mercedes-Benz Energy, emphasized the value of the project for the promotion of a sustainable energy industry: "The extension of regenerative and thus high-fluctuation energy production is rapidly increasing worldwide. The tendency towards increasing distances between the site of energy production and the site of energy consumption also means huge challenges for today's energy grids. This is creating wide-ranging opportunities for stationary energy storage systems worldwide. 2nd-life battery storage units are a very sensible supplement, as with the further utilisation of disused car batteries we are also making sustainable use of valuable raw materials."
