Associate Professor Inês Azevedo was the senior lead author for a paper published in Science

A new study finds quantifies the subnational carbon emissions from electricity in each of India’s states, the limited effect of a carbon tax in India’s current power sector to reduce emissions, and underscores the importance technologies to reduce premature mortality from air pollution.

For a longer-lasting battery, make the most of each cell

The secret to long life for rechargeable batteries may lie in an embrace of difference. New modeling of how lithium-ion cells in a pack degrade show a way to tailor charging to each cell’s capacity so EV batteries can handle more charge cycles and stave off failure. (Source: Stanford News)
