Green Car Congress
APRIL 30, 2013
750,000 to research value-based design options for the standardization of plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) batteries. Standardizing PEV batteries could reduce the purchase and ownership costs of PEVS, as well as addressing additional consumer issues such as maintenance and safety. This project includes $150,000 in match funding from San Diego Gas & Electric. The conversion process will also produce biochar, a soil amendment that can be used for agricultural purposes.
