The potential economic implications of using vehicle batteries to store grid electricity generated at off-peak hours for off-vehicle use during peak hours were examined. Hourly electricity prices in three U.S. cities were used to arrive at daily profit values, while the economic losses associated with battery degradation were calculated based on data collected from A123 Systems LiFePO4/Graphite cells tested under combined driving and off-vehicle electricity utilization.
