While the market for battery home storage systems (HSS) is growing rapidly, there are still few well-modelled life cycle assessment (LCA) studies available for quantifying their potential environmental benefits and impacts. Existing studies mainly rely on data for electric vehicles and often lack a thorough modelling approach, especially regarding the peripheral components. This paper presents a full cradle to grave LCA of a Lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery HSS based on primary data obtained by part-to-part dismantling of an existing commercial system with a focus on the impact of the peripheral components. Additionally, alternative battery chemistries (Sodium ion battery (SIB) and two lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxides, (NMC811,and NMC622) are investigated under the consideration of the same periphery. This approach allows a comprehensive comparison between present and emerging cell chemistries that can be potentially considered for an HSS.

The total greenhouse gas emissions of the HSS are 84 g CO2eq/KWh of electricity delivered over its lifetime in a residential PV application, or 31 g CO2eq/KWh over lifetime when excluding the use-phase impact. ... mehr
