The abbreviation B2B for 'business-to-business', covering trade of goods or services between two companies, might as well stand for 'battery-to-battery' in a new deal between battery producer Northvolt and Eastern Swedish utility Mälarenergi.

The deal pertains to a facility of 220 kW, a charging solution for electric vehicles consisting of several elements from Northvolt's modular Voltrack system. According to Northvolt, the purpose is to charge batteries during times of surplus electricity, after which the power can be transferred to EVs, sparing the grid at times of peak load in the morning and around dinner time.
