Carnegie Mellon Vehicle Electrification Group Overview

The Carnegie Mellon Vehicle Electrification Group was founded by Professors Jeremy Michalek and Jay Whitacre in 2009 to study electrified vehicles, including hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and battery electric vehicles. Research thrust areas include: life-cycle economic, environmental, and security implications of electrified vehicles; battery technology development, design, and evaluation; vehicle systems assessment, optimization, and integration with the electrical grid; and public policy evaluation.
