NPP Power Europe
NPP Power Europe is one of the collaboration partners of ARN for the second use use of batteries. The end-of-life car batteries collected via ARN are given a second life by NPP Power for example in solar panels for road signs, installations for temporarily energy surplus storing, renewable installations or installations for backup power. The material used by NPP Power for the products the company develops would otherwise have ended up unused. Not only do they give these products a second life, but also double the service life of the materials. And the costs are lower than the purchase price for virgin products. In everything they do, they try to keep their impact on the environment as small as possible for example by using clean energy from wind and solar sources.
Time Shift energy storage
The Duiven-based company Time Shift energy storage, as an ARN partner, processes end-of-life batteries. The company develops energy storage systems based on end-of-life batteries, that are then used by energy companies.
ARN supplies propulsion batteries from cars to EcarACCU. To safely dismantle the propulsion batteries, employees at the company first check whether the cells are still producing power. The propulsion batteries are rejected for use in the automotive industry, but outside cars there are plenty of other possibilities for second use. One notable application is the storage of solar energy. The second use of propulsion batteries also offers an excellent solution for power supply in remote areas.
