JAGUAR DRIVES TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

Jaguar has developed a zero-emission energy storage unit powered by second-life Jaguar I-PACE batteries. Collaborating with Pramac, the technology supplies zero-emission power where access to the mains supply is limited or unavailable.

Named the off-grid battery Energy Storage System (ESS), it's capability was showcased in Jaguar TCS Racing’s preparation for the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in the UK and Spain. It was used to run the team’s cutting-edge diagnostic equipment analysing the race cars’ track performance, and to supply auxiliary power to the Jaguar pit garage.

IMPRESSIVE CAPACITY

The ESS system has a capacity of up to 125kWh, which is more than enough to fully charge Jaguar’s all-electric I-PACE performance SUV, or to power a regular family home for a week. Finding a second life for batteries after they’ve been removed from cars means premature recycling is avoided and it helps create a secure supply of rare materials. The advanced engineering of the I-PACE battery makes it perfect for second-life and even third-life uses in low-energy situations once the battery no longer meets the stringent requirements of an electric vehicle. Importantly, once the battery reaches the end of its usable life, it’s 95 percent recyclable.

Andrew Whitworth, Battery Manager, Circular Economy Team at Jaguar Land Rover, said, “This announcement is a great example of how we will collaborate with industry leaders to deliver our sustainable future and achieve a truly circular economy. We’re delighted to be working with Pramac to use Jaguar I-PACE second-life batteries to provide portable zero-emissions power, and supporting Jaguar TCS Racing this season was an excellent opportunity to demonstrate what these units are capable of.”
