The New York Times features chemical engineering professor Lilo Pozzo, chemical engineering Ph.D. student Matt Murbach, and CEI director Dan Schwartz in an article published this week about clean energy innovation in Washington and California. “Rethinking Electric Power, Prompted by Politics and Disaster” highlights Pozzo’s work in Puerto Rico with a group of students on health-related energy resiliency issues and Murbach’s and Schwartz’s research on diagnosing the state of health in batteries and finding opportunities for reuse. Pozzo is hoping to return to Puerto Rico over spring break with students to continue these efforts. Murbach, the startup he helped found, Battery Informatics, and students are monitoring the installation of the King County Metro bus batteries on Twin Islands—demonstrating how these used batteries have potential for real-world stationary energy storage applications.
