Options for Retired Electric Vehicle Batteries: An Applied Research Perspective
Would you like to learn what happens to retired electric vehicle (EV) batteries? Join us in a discussion about what BCIT researchers are doing to mitigate the EV battery end-of-life challenges. The session will incorporate an overview of BCIT research methods, and it will conclude in a critical thought discussion about how this issue might impact community members, like you.
This session will be of interest to anyone interested in electric vehicles and reducing their carbon footprint.
