A new lease of life: 2nd generation batteries in residential buildings (WEBINAR)

Working to co-create smart and sustainable cities means lots of knowledge transfer and exchange between IRIS partners. And while hungry for knowledge, they are not too greedy to share!

Our friends at Bo-Ex in the Netherlands and Johanneberg Science Park had plenty of questions for each other in a webinar held 9 April 2019, especially after installation of 2nd generation batteries at the IRIS demonstration site in Gothenburg, Sweden.
