projects

Our projects focus on evaluating the costs and environmental impacts of energy technologies to accelerate their improvement. Through data analysis and modeling, we study expected changes to technology performance over time, due to innovation and evolving operational contexts. By relating performance to design and manufacturing decisions, our research informs technology development in the laboratory and technology policy. We work on a variety of energy conversion and storage technologies for electricity and transportation.

Risks and scalability of new technologies

Risks and scalability of new technologies

We are developing methods to assess the risks of existing and new technologies in terms of cost and other performance metrics, and how these risks might change in interesting and important ways with the scale of adoption.
