Nuvation Energy CEO Michael Worry will be joining the Young Professionals in Energy (YPE) for a battery storage panel discussion on Thursday, August 3, from 6-8 pm PST. Worry will share his experience using second-life Nissan Leaf batteries to develop a battery energy storage system, used to charge electric vehicles.
Battery energy storage is becoming increasingly important as EVs gain popularity and become more common on the roadways. Over time, EV batteries age out and begin to affect the vehicle range. At this point, these batteries can be repurposed for use in stationary energy storage applications.
This event will be held by the YPE SF Bay Area chapter, one of 40 chapters around the world. By providing a forum for networking and career development through social, educational and civic service opportunities, the non-profit organization aims to facilitate the advancement of young professionals in the global energy industry.
