Personal Profile

With a background in chemical engineering, Margaret (Maggie) Mann has expertise in process modeling, economic feasibility analysis, and supply chain modeling. She leads research projects on the supply chain availability of materials and manufacturing infrastructure for batteries and explores how research and global policies can affect future EV deployment. She also investigates using batteries and thermal storage to reduce the cost and grid impacts of fast EV charging in behind-the-meter-storage systems.

During her tenure at NREL, she has contributed to the development of systematic methods for credible and objective technology analysis. She has conducted techno-economic analyses of more than 50 energy technologies, including power generation from renewables, distributed generation, battery storage, and transportation. Additionally, she has performed numerous environmental life cycle assessments and supply chain analyses to determine the big-picture impacts of renewable and energy-efficient systems and has developed resource use characterization methodologies for analyzing the various and competing uses of limited resources such as water, land, materials, and installed infrastructure.
