The engineering team of Jaguar have joined hands with Pramac to develop a zero-emission energy storage unit

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.
