Battery Systems for Transportation and Grid Services

EE 292X (CEE 292X) Battery Systems for Transportation and Grid Services - Panel Session, Future of battery systems and their applications

Topic: 
Future of battery systems and their applications
Abstract / Description: 

The panel will discuss future market and technology trends of battery systems and their applications in transportation and the grid. It will feature short presentations by the panelists followed by a Q&A period moderated by Abbas and Ram. The panelists will address future trends in battery technologies at the cell and pack levels and projections of key battery performance metrics, including energy density
power density, cost, degradation, and safety. They will also address questions such as: What are the projected requirements for grid and transportation applications? What technologies will dominate transportation applications? What technologies will dominate grid applications? Will secondary life become real? Will EV to grid become real? What are the challenges to be addressed? What should academia be working on?

EE/CEE 292X presents "Life-Cycle and Environmental Considerations for Battery Storage Systems"

Topic: 
Life-Cycle and Environmental Considerations for Battery Storage Systems
Abstract / Description: 

Batteries are essential for decarbonizing the transportation sector and managing the variability of the renewable power generation. However, while batteries can provide many benefits, they also come with environmental concerns that stem from mining the materials needed to make them, the energy required for manufacturing, and end-of-life disposition. Data and models that explore the life-cycle and environmental considerations for batteries will be presented. In addition, by comparing batteries to other options for providing transportation and grid-balancing services, we will demonstrate that batteries are overall very beneficial for creating a low carbon energy system.

EE/CEE 292X presents "Plug-in Electric Vehicles in Distributed Energy Resource Ecosystem – Technology, Market and Customer Perspectives"

Topic: 
Plug-in Electric Vehicles in Distributed Energy Resource Ecosystem – Technology, Market and Customer Perspectives
Abstract / Description: 

Well over a million (closer to 1.5M) EVs and plug-ins are on the roads today in the US, and about half of them are in California. They represent challenges in terms of defining, designing, installing and managing the integration of the charging (including fast charging) infrastructure into the grid and, once ready, provide a significant opportunity to enable both clean transportation and cleaner grid through their utilization as a grid resource in a variety of use cases and scenarios. All aspects of the above challenges and opportunities are a topic of intensive research at EPRI, and will be covered in this presentation. At the end of the class, the students will have a good idea as to what the key areas of research interest, what the utility and automotive industries are working on today and what the near future may look like, through the example projects that the author is leading / managing at EPRI.
