Reliable and affordable residential energy storage utilising used EV batteries accelerates the green energy transition.

One trend in the low-carbon energy transition is the change from consumers to prosumers, where households generate their own renewable electricity. xStorage home battery systems – built using second-life Nissan Leaf batteries – enable prosumers to store excess renewable electricity for use at times when the sun isn’t shining. This allows the 24-hour use of renewable energy in the home, saves the cost of buying from the grid at peak times, and protects against outages. The units, storing up to 7.5 kWh, are built in collaboration with Nissan and the power management firm Eaton.

This solution was featured in Reuse to Repower market of the 2018 Global Opportunity Report, and was selected based on the criteria of that report. 

How the Global Goals are addressed

Affordable and Clean Energy

Boosting residential storage offers a number of increased benefits for prosumers who generate their own renewable energy.

Responsible Consumption and Production

Embracing circular principles, xStorage ensures that batteries are reused in another setting before being recycled.

Partnership For the Goals

xStorage is the result of a collaboration between Nissan and Eaton, bringing together each company’s strengths to create a product for a more circular economy.
