  • Jaguar Develops Zero-Emission Energy Storage System
  • Energy Storage System (ESS) is charged using solar panels
  • Jaguar I-PACE batteries are suitable for second and third-life applications

Jaguar engineering team in collaboration with Pramac has started work on the development of a zero-emission energy storage unit. The Mobile Battery Energy Storage System (ESS) will be powered by second-life Jaguar I-PACE batteries taken from prototype and engineering test vehicles. Called the Off Grid Battery Energy Storage System (ESS), it features lithium-ion cells from one-and-a-half second-life Jaguar I-PACE batteries while supplying zero-emission power. To showcase its capability, the unit helped Jaguar TCS Racing prepare for the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship during testing in the UK and Spain.


The testing and validation of the Off Grid Battery ESS was carried out by Jaguar TCS Racing. Learnings from Jaguar TCS Racing have previously informed a software-over-the-air (SOTA) update for I-PACE customers that delivered a real-world range increase of up to 20 km – and now further use cases for the Off Grid Battery ESS around the racing team’s programme are being assessed. The flagship ESS system has a capacity of up to 125 kWh – more than enough to fully charge the Jaguar I-PACE SUV, or to power a regular family home for a week. Charged from solar panels, the unit is a self-contained solution that consists of a battery system linked to a bi-directional converter and the associated control management systems.


This advanced engineering makes the I-PACE battery perfect for second-life, and even third-life, applications in low-energy situations once battery health falls below the stringent requirements of an electric vehicle. Once the battery does finally come to the end of its usable life, it is 95 percent recyclable. Finding a second life for batteries after they have been removed from vehicles can avoid premature recycling and help in creating a secure supply of rare materials. The state-of-the-art 90 kWh Lithium-ion battery in the Jaguar I-PACE delivers up to 394 bhp and 696 Nm while enabling acceleration from 0-100 kmph in just 4.8 seconds. The battery comes with a warranty of 8-years or 160,000 kms.


Jaguar TCS Racing will further help Jaguar Land Rover develop new sustainable technologies, set new benchmarks in quality with its partners and support Jaguar’s renaissance as an all-electric luxury brand from 2025. Danny Jones, Director, Pramac, said: “We have been privileged to work so closely with Jaguar Land Rover who are a hugely supportive partner in our journey to successfully build a robust product and a commercially viable business case using second-life EV modules.  This brings a new element to the sustainability story as a manufacturer of energy efficient and carbon reducing technology. We look forward to continuing the journey with Jaguar Land Rover and providing innovative charging infrastructure solutions to support the electrification of their class-leading vehicles.”
