Battery Selection November 2022

Three noteworthy battery-related reports from our database have been chosen for this month's battery special. This month's reports address a variety of topics, including the most recent changes to the battery market, laws, and research, possible connections and transfers between the local economies of Germany and Europe and the battery ecosystem, and safeguarding the future supply of lithium.
Selected reports

  • Key technical, policy and market developments influencing the electric vehicle battery landscape | Cobra
  • The importance of regional value creation structures in the battery industry | VDI/VDE Innovation
  • Achieving resilience and sustainability for the EV battery supply chain | Arthur D little

The battery market, related regulations, and research

The U.S. has taken the initiative by passing the Inflation Reduction Act, which promotes American battery manufacturing, while the EU continues to work on implementing the New Battery Regulation. In terms of new battery rules, California made progress with an emphasis on EV battery take-back and announced a strategy for the electrification of transportation.

The most recent developments in battery market, legislation, and research are uncovered in this paper. Additionally, the COBRA organiser will provide his opinions about battery advancements and outline how recent project accomplishments are helping Europe produce more ecologically friendly batteries.

long-term success in the battery sector

A key success factor for the long-term growth of a new industry and its integration into the innovation system is for its stakeholders to connect with pre-existing networks and economic structures. By doing so, they can establish a presence in the innovation landscape and realise potential synergies with their established stakeholders and organisations.

This paper offers helpful advice for organisations looking for suitable sites or cooperative partners that want to prosper in the battery industry over the long term. This study goes into further detail on the importance of cluster activities for creating regional value

The importance of regional value creation structures in the battery industry | VDI/VDE Innovation

A graph depicting announced European battery cell production capacities alongside modeled battery cell demand for different vehicle types (heavy commercial, light commercial, and passenger vehicles) from 2022 to 2030. The graph shows both conservative and progressive scenarios.

Supply chains for batteries are still global, fragile, and complicated

A growing variety of issues, such as increased raw material prices and geopolitical unrest, have an influence on their resilience. In 2022, average battery pack costs increased for the first time since 2013. Government’s drive to localise battery manufacturing, increased regulation, and ESG concerns all put further strain on already-stretched global supply chains. All of these elements raise the possibility of manufacturing bottlenecks.

This report describes how new, more circular techniques are needed throughout the larger battery value chain in order to ensure the supply chain for batteries is resilient and sustainable. These strategies should be based on increased openness and an end-to-end perspective to ensure supply security in the future.
