Options for Retired EV Batteries: An Applied Research Perspective (Burnaby Festival of Learning)

Options for Retired EV Batteries: An Applied Research Perspective (Burnaby Festival of Learning) Online

This session will discuss the move to electric vehicles as one piece of a set of solutions to help meet greenhouse gas reduction targets. You will learn about the challenges presented by retired EV batteries, how research methods can lead to solutions, and specifically what BCIT researchers are doing to mitigate the EV battery end-of-life challenge. The session will incorporate an overview of the research method, and will conclude by engaging the audience in a critical thought discussion around this issue and how it may impact them.

The presentation will include background and scope of the problem, description of research to-date, future research plans, general research approach, and engagement activities with the audience around this specific issue of EV battery end-of-life.

This session will be of interest to anyone who is interested in electric vehicles and reducing their carbon footprint.
