Recuperation is the recovery of energy from the kinetic energy of electric vehicles, which is fed into the rechargeable battery of the electric vehicle.

There are concepts for energy recovery in electric vehicles. This involves converting the energy generated when the vehicle brakes into electrical energy and feeding it back into the battery. The process is known as regenerative braking. Since the conversion of braking energy involves conversion losses, the amount of energy recovered is lossy and therefore less than the available kinetic energy.

Recuperation is also used in trolleybuses, streetcars and other rail vehicles. Here, the energy generated during braking is fed back into the overhead line.
