An interdisciplinary team of U-M sustainability experts and engineers led by School of Natural Resources and Environment Postdoctoral Associate Maryam Arbabzadeh has developed a “ green guide” to aid developers and operators of energy storage systems. Titled “12 Principles for Green Energy Storage in Grid Applications,” the 12 Principles offer researchers, designers and industry professionals a clear, concise picture of the most important criteria to consider when designing and operating sustainable energy storage devices and systems. The principles are detailed in the January 19 issue of Environmental Science and Technology. at this link: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acs.est.5b03867
