Students Publish Papers on EV Batteries

Energy Graduate Group students and faculty published several papers on EV batteries. Margaret Slattery, Jessica Dunn, and Alissa Kendall conducted a critical review of the peer-reviewed literature on EV traction battery reuse and recycling to asses how transportation of end-of-life batteries is represented. Tobiah Steckel, Alissa Kendall, and Hanjiro Ambrose developed a model for estimating the Levelized Cost of Storage for second-life battery energy storage systems and developed a harmonized approach to compare them to new battery energy storage systems.
