Many people have been scratching their heads over the years wondering where all the used EV batteries will end up. Honda and American Electric Power are working together and conducting needed research to develop a 2nd life for these batteries. The goal is to integrate a network of used EV batteries into American Electric Power’s electricity system.  The batteries would be used as storage for the electric grid to help with electricity usage spikes. With more electric vehicles being sold daily, in the near future there could be a strain on the power grid, especially after the workday when these vehicles are being plugged in for charging.
