Dr. Peter Keil is the founder and CEO of BATTERY DYNAMICS.
Peter Keil received the diploma degree in mechanical engineering from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany, in 2010. In his diploma thesis, he developed a battery model for the analysis of energy management strategies for electric vehicles.
From 2010 till 2018, he was a research associate at the Institute for Electrical Energy Storage Technology at TUM. The focus of his research was on electrical and thermal characterization of lithium-ion battery cells to determine the performance and degradation of various lithium-ion batteries.
In 2017, Peter Keil received the Ph.D. in electrical engineering. The titel of his thesis was “Aging of Lithium-Ion Batteries in Electric Vehicles” and the thesis is available as an open-access document.
Dr. Keil received the Dr. Wilhelmy Foundation Award for his outstanding Ph.D. thesis in 2017 and the DriveE Thesis Award (2nd price) for his diploma thesis in 2011.
Peter Keil is the auther of multiple peer-reviewed publications on the performance and degradation of lithium-ion cells. He is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences on battery technology. In addition to that, he gives battery seminars for medium companies and large international enterprises.
