Electrical Energy Storage Research Team
Emmanuel Shittu is a postdoctoral research assistant in Dr Jenny Baker's electrical energy storage group. Emmanuel’s key area of research is developing life cycle assessment (LCA) models to critically assess the environmental impacts of energy storage technologies. Emmanuel is also an experienced aerospace engineer in stress analysis of primary aircraft structures using computer-aided engineering and methodology.
Emmanuel’s most recent work was the development of the LCA model for soluble lead redox flow battery to critically assess its environmental impacts, and compare it with vanadium redox flow battery, lithium-ion, and lead-acid batteries. Emmanuel’s current research activities are the LCA of sodium-ion battery anode materials, and the benchmarking (via LCA) of new thermal recovery processes of active materials from functional coating; under a recently EPSRC funded project titled Thermal Recovery of Functional Coatings (TReFCo).
