Electric Vehicles: Used Vehicle, Battery Second Life, and Life Cycle Analysis Webinar

Loading Events

Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) 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, 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 associated with BEVs.
