General Motors and ABB have partnered to produce a prototype back-up power storage unit that repackages five used Chevrolet Volt batteries into a modular unit that becomes an uninterruptable power supply and grid power balancing system. The unit is demonstrated Tuesday, November 14, 2012 during GM’s Electrification Experience in San Francisco, California. (Photo by Steve Fecht for General Motors)
