New report – The Positive Side of Batteries

Electromobility thus has a great potential to become a key solution for an environmentally friendly and decarbonised transport sector. Moving away from dirty fossil fuels and introducing proper sustainability criteria for batteries are essential to making it happen. Discover our new report!

Battery production will surge as electric vehicles become one of the biggest trends of the 21st century. By 2030 alone, the yearly production of ion-lithium batteries is expected to increase to 700GWh worldwide, enough to power 14 million average-sized cars.

Our new paper, written in cooperation with ReVolta, shows how to set standards for batteries to be repairable and reusable. The rules our experts propose will make batteries easier to assess and compare across brands, ensuring that they can have a second life once their first use is over. We have the chance to set clear environmentally-friendly rules for recycling and reusing batteries before electric vehicles go mainstream.
