JLR Develops Portable BESS Using Second-Life Range Rover Batteries

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has partnered with Allye Energy, an energy storage start-up, to create a battery energy storage system that provides zero emissions power on the go. 

The Allye MAX BESS holds seven second-life Range Rover and Range Rover Sport PHEV battery packs, which are removed from the vehicles and slotted into customized racks. They do not require any additional processing. 

Each BESS can store 270 kWh of energy at full capacity, which is enough energy to power the average household for nearly a month. They can also charge up to nine Range Rover PHEVs. 

The Allye MAX BESS has been designed for easy charging — users simply plug it into any CCS-capable Vehicle Charger using the same input as JLR’s existing PHEV and BEV product portfolio.  

The MAX BESS can replace diesel generators to power off-grid vehicle launches, events, and vehicle tests. 

“We are delighted to be working with Allye Energy on this next generation sustainability project that will help demonstrate the potential of our circular supply chain ambitions. Developing second-life battery projects like this is crucial if we want to make sustainability real in JLR and drive us towards achieving our carbon net zero target by 2039,” said Reuben Chorley, Sustainable Industrial Operations Director at JLR, in a statement. 

Battery value chains are expected to grow 30% annually from 2022 to 2030, reaching a value exceeding $400 billion. Second-life battery supply for stationary applications is predicted to exceed 200 GWh by 2030, generating a global value of over $30 billion.
