Hyundai EV batteries to get second life in Wärtsilä ESS deal

The companies said their “technology and commercial partnership” would target “advanced energy storage products and platforms that maximise Hyundai’s second-life EV batteries”— selling into Wärtsilä’s existing network of customers across 180 countries.
