Zicheng Bi

University of Michigan

Zicheng (Kevin) Bi is a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His dissertation work at the Center for Sustainable Systems focuses on the life cycle assessment and optimization of wireless charging electric vehicles, including stationary wireless charging for electric bus systems and optimal siting of dynamic wireless charging infrastructure for charging moving passenger cars on highways or urban roadways. 


The large-scale penetration of electric vehicles (EVs) is an important strategy to mitigate environmental impacts as well as energy consumption of the transportation sector that is responsible for 28% of total U.S. energy use.... [ view full abstract ]
