Life Cycle Assessment of Battery Electric Vehicles: Implications of Future Electricity Mix and Different Battery End-of-Life Management

2022

Author(s): Koroma MS, Costa D, Philippot M, Cardellini G, Hosen MS, Coosemans T, Messagie M

This study conducts a scenario-based Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of three different scenarios combining four key parameters: future changes in the charging electricity mix, battery efficiency fade, battery refurbishment, and recycling for their collective importance on the life-cycle environmental performance of a BEV.

When, Where and How Can the Electrification of Passenger Cars Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

2022

Author(s): Sacchi R, Bauer C, Cox B, Mutel C

This paper introduces carculator, a Python library to conduct environmental life cycle assessments of current and future passenger vehicles. Because carculator is open-source and equipped with an easy-to-use online graphical user interface, it produces context-specific results, deemed more relevant than results otherwise published in more static formats.

Investor perspectives on accelerating growth in the Indian ev ecosystem

2022

Author(s): Moerenhout T, Goel S, Aneja, D A, Bansal A, Ray S

The report takes stock of India’s current EVs ecosystem and where the sector may be heading in the future, with a focus on drivers of and barriers to investment. The research for this study involved in-depth consultations with experts, policymakers, investors, and companies, as well as results from an online survey with EV experts and companies. The report presents the main takeaways of this research.

Electrification of Heavy-Duty Vehicles in Emerging Markets

2022

Author(s): Khan T, Yang Z

The objectives of this paper are to assess the status of zero-emission HDV deployment and policies in Emerging Markets and Developing Economies (EMDEs), evaluate the major policy levers for HDV electrification, and identify policy barriers and key recommendations for HDV electrification in the EMDEs.

This report, which focuses on ships trading with the European Union, predicts a tripling of demand for LNG as marine fuel between 2019 and 2030, based on trends in fuel consumption. It also estimates that renewable LNG will cost seven times more than fossil LNG in 2030 and, therefore, subsidies or other policies would be needed to encourage its use.
