Trend of EV Battery Recycle Development

The worldwide new energy vehicle sector is expanding quickly, and one of the pressing problems is the shortage of upstream resources. The EV battery recycling market has been thriving, and the impending battery retirement tide will further propel the growth of the EV battery recycling industry. However, many nations continue to work to perfect the EV battery recycling policy system under the carbon neutral standards. The market for recycling EV batteries shows promise in terms of technical advancement, business strategy, and industry chain synergy, but there are still many significant obstacles to overcome.

This report provides an overview of China’s EV battery recycling market, highlighting its prospective technological advancements, commercial strategies, and industry chain synergies.

Electrifying 2 wheelers in Indonesia

The development of the electric vehicle (EV) sector is a priority on Indonesia’s national agenda, as evidenced by a presidential order and national programmes. In keeping with the national vision, the country intends to be the region’s leading market and manufacturing powerhouse, with a goal of reaching 25% annual sales penetration for electric 2-wheelers (e2W) and 2.5 million annual production capacity by 2030.

This report provides a road map to electrifying Indonesia’s two-wheeler sector

E-mobility in low-income countries in Africa

Less than 1% of the world’s emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) are produced by low-income countries (LICs) in Africa. So why should they spend money electrifying their transportation? Instead of prioritising e-mobility, shouldn’t they focus on their most urgent development needs?

This report looks at the cost, fairness, and significance of switching to e-mobility in 23 African low income countries Using data from major African transportation stakeholders’ surveys and interviews, as well as analysis of academic and non-academic literature on e-mobility, energy, policy, and finance.

End-of-Life (EOL) management suggestions for the US

Due to its advantages for the environment and the economy, electric cars, which are largely powered by lithium-ion batteries, have drawn a lot of interest as the transportation of the future. However, the management of lithium-ion batteries is now very linear. Reusing and recycling lithium-ion batteries at the end of their lifespans would promote a circular economy that would lower the social and environmental costs of mining for metals, slow down the depletion of natural resources, and avoid the careless handling that frequently occurs with disposal.

This study aggregates and offers a collection of useful End-of-Life (EOL) management suggestions for the US on infrastructure, legislation, and technology.

V2G charging in Turkey

Technologies like energy storage systems and electric cars are still in the early stages of development. The Vehicle to Grid (V2G) concept is one of the creative methods to utilise electric vehicles. The possibility of bidirectional energy flows when charging EVs is a feature of V2G charging stations. This application allows the technology to calculate the system’s greatest level of profitability and grants EVs and BEVs the capacity to control electricity flows, so enhancing the economy’s energy balance.

The goal of the study is to increase the aggregator’s revenues for V2G by forming a partnership with renewable energy providers, pooling the power of several EVs, and making their combined power available to the electricity markets.
