Used batteries from electric cars are used in street lighting

Nissan and 4R Energy Corporation have launched the Reborn Light project, which involves the installation of innovative street lamps in Namie (Japan). A unique lighting system includes solar cells and used batteries from electric cars Nissan Leaf.

The project simultaneously solves the ecological problem of recycling spent batteries and helps to save electricity. The lanterns can work autonomously, without connection to the power grid, and their operation also does not require cables. After the test, a new lighting system will be introduced in Namie.
