This workshop has been cancelled. Stay tuned for blog posts and future events on this topic! We apologize for any inconvenience! 


This workshop will shed light on the often perplexing world of batteries and energy storage in devices we use every day: cell phones, cordless tools, laptops, and more. Richard Freudenberger, Living Web Farms’ Energy and Resources Coordinator, will lead participants through a look at batteries’ most common chemistries–lead-acid, alkaline, nickel, lithium–and explore applications in both handheld IoT devices and larger systems such as solar power equipment and electric vehicles. Technology is improving and ongoing, so bring your questions and plan for a dive into best charging practices, practical energy density, replacement options, and cost per watt as well as dynamics such as safety, cycle life, ethical and environmental impacts, recycling and recovery strategies, and maintenance.
