One of the greatest opportunities and challenges in developing a sustainable and efficient transportation infrastructure rests upon intelligent energy management in electrified vehicles. This talk specifically addresses problems at three levels of vehicle electrification: the battery, the vehicle, and the infrastructure. We address energy management at each level from a systems and controls point-of-view. The talk closes with a review of open questions and opportunities in electrified vehicle energy management
