Volvo Buses partners with Stena in second-life battery application for residences

In partnership with Stena Property and Stena Recycling’s subsidiary BatteryLoop, Volvo Buses electric bus batteries are being used for energy storage and as an energy source in Gothenburg’s Fyrklövern residential complex. The project is a step towards circular economy in electromobility creating new commercial possibilities for companies.

This project is the second that Volvo Buses is engaged in for maximizing the use of bus batteries. Volvo Buses is running a similar project together with several partners in the Viva residential area in Gothenburg. The project has received a number of awards, including the Environmental Building of the Year from Sweden Green Building Awards 2019.

In Stena Property’s Fyrklövern residential area the reused bus batteries will be charged from solar panels fitted to the building roofs, and the electricity that is stored in them will be used for public areas such as laundries and outdoor lighting. When the battery pack’s energy storage capability ends, the batteries will be sent to Stena Recycling for recycling.
