Materials and Design Strategies for High Power Li-Ion Batteries for HEV and PHEV
K.M. Abraham, PhD, Chief Technology Officer, E-KEM Sciences; and Research Professor, Northeastern University
This presentation will review the state of the art in material choices for cell and battery construction, performance, safety and price of high power Li-ion batteries for HEV and PHEV applications
PHEV Battery Performance in a Vehicle to Grid (V2G) Utilization Scenario: A Technological and Economic Analysis
Jay Whitacre, PhD, Assistant Professor, Materials for Electrochemical Technologies Lab, Dept Materials Science and Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University*
This talk will describe work done to examine the degradation of common LiFePO4-based Li-ion batteries when used in urban driving conditions combined with afternoon grid-level load shifting (V2G). A technical evaluation of cell performance will be given and an economic model will be presented that shows the potential benefits of using V2G/smart grid technology with PHEV battery packs.
*In collaboration with: S.Peterson and J.Apt, Carnegie Mellon University
Changing the Way the World Views Portable Power
Per Onnerud, PhD, Chief Technical Officer, Boston-Power Inc.
In this presentation, we will share insights into user demand for untethered mobility and the advancements in lithium-ion battery technology poised to fulfill that requirement.
