Nissan Australia is set to launch the Nissas Node project at the Nissan Casting Australia Plant (NCAP) to power part of its production facility. An important step towards Nissan Australia’s goal of carbon neutrality, the project features Relectrify’s ReVolve battery storage product, which will be charged via the solar array.

 “This isn’t just a hugely exciting project, but an important step into the future for end-of-life EV batteries,” says Nissan Casting Australia Managing Director, Peter Jones.

It’s a true Circular Economy project, using end-of-life batteries from the Nissan LEAF and renewable energy to power part of the production of components for Nissan’s global EV models, as well as help supply the new EV chargers to recharge staff vehicles. The project is estimated to reduce Nissan Casting Australia’s annual CO2 emissions by 259 tons, while saving 128 megawatts of energy every year.
