November 14, 2019, 2:30 Central – Webinar: EVs: Used Vehicle, Battery Second Life & Life Cycle Analysis
Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) hold great promise for reducing pollutant emissions from the vehicle sector since BEVs outperform conventional vehicles in most environmental metrics. The lithium-ion battery that stores the vehicle’s energy has become a point of concern for its effect on pollutant emissions and for uncertainty regarding its future end-of-life. Jarod Kelly from Argonne National Laboratory will examine the used BEV market (as a means toward social equity), the opportunity for second-life applications of the BEV’s battery, and life cycle environmental effects.
