Electric vehicles from life cycle and circular economy perspectives: TERM 2018

2018

Author(s): European Environment Agency

The study shows BEVs offer important opportunities to reduce GHG emissions and local air pollution. Areas where BEVs could have potential negative impacts are also identified during raw material extraction stage, a temporary rebound effect during vehicle adoption and uncertainty in terms of end-of-life processing. Current and future policy levers and incentives could be reviewed adopting battery standardization to facilitate recycling and reuse.

Global EV outlook 2022: securing supplies for an electric future

2022

Author(s): International Energy Agency

The increase in EV sales in 2021 was primarily led by the People’s Republic of China, which accounted for half of the growth. More vehicles were sold in China in 2021 (3.3 million) than in the entire world in 2020. Sales in Europe showed continued robust growth (up 65% to 2.3 million) after the 2020 boom, and they increased in the United States as well (to 630 000) after two years of decline.

Envisioning 5G-enabled transport

2020

Author(s): Monserrat J F, Diehl A, Lamas C B, Sultan S

5G features will have an impact in the transport sector, contributing to transport-specific applications. When applying these new technologies to transport, changes can be expected across the sector, to some extent. While impossible to foresee all potential applications, the study predicts three likely and significant changes: (1) the rise of connected and autonomous vehicles, (2) increasingly smart and efficient logistics, and (3) improved urban transportation with the implementation of MaaS platforms.
