Jaguar Land Rover gives second life to I-Pace EV batteries

Jaguar Land Rover has partnered with Pramac to develop a portable, zero-emission energy storage unit powered by second-life Jaguar I-PACE batteries. Called the “Off Grid Battery Energy Storage System” (ESS), Pramac’s technology – which features lithium-ion cells from Jaguar I-PACE batteries taken from prototype and engineering test vehicles – supplies zero-emission power where access to the main supply is limited or unavailable.

The partnership is the first in Jaguar Land Rover’s plans to create new circular economy business models for its vehicle batteries. As part of its commitment to net-zero status by 2039, the company says it will be launching programs that deliver “second life and beyond uses” for its electric vehicle batteries.

The flagship system has a capacity of up to 125kWh – more than enough to fully charge Jaguar’s all-electric I-PACE performance SUV, or to power a regular family home for a week, the company says. Pramac directly reuses up to 85% of the vehicle battery supplied by Jaguar Land Rover within the storage unit, including modules and wiring. The remaining materials are recycled back into the supply chain.

Charged from solar panels, the unit is a self-contained solution that consists of a battery system linked to a bi-directional converter and the associated control management systems. Available for commercial hire, the units are fitted with Type 2 Electric Vehicle (EV) charge connections with dynamic control and rated at up to 22kW AC to allow electric vehicle charging.
