Solar energy–based EV charging: a pilot and techno-economic study

2021

Author(s): Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP)

The report outlines an intelligent bi-directional converter (PCU) that interfaces with SRTPV and battery systems (with DC coupling) to manage the energy flow with EV chargers and the grid. The prioritisation of solar energy for local consumption before feeding it to the grid, deployment of a novel charging algorithm where the EV charging load is made to follow and the solar energy generation profile. Such a method reduces the need for costly battery energy.

Battery Swapping for Electric Two-wheelers in India: Strategy hinterlands

2022

Author(s): Gode P, Bhatt A, Sinha S, Kohli S, Callahan J

This research helps create an agenda for future strategy that supports the battery-swapping business model in India. Because lower battery prices in the future would diminish the cost benefits of acquiring an E2W without the battery, early policy could focus on things less likely to change in the near and medium term, such as the value of time saved on charging and on supporting battery swapping operators (BSOs) in maintaining best practices for operational safety and end-of-life care. That means things like extending future FAME subsidies to two-wheelers sold without pre-fitted batteries and relevant operational and safety standards for BSOs.

International Review on Recycling Ecosystem of Electric Vehicle Batteries

2022

Author(s): Bej S (GIZ), Zhimomi T (GIZ), Hochfeld C (Agora Verkehrswende), Riehle EB (Agora Verkehrswende), Rather Z (Indian Institute of Technology Bombay), Bradiya MR (Indian Institute of Technology Bombay), Maity S (Indian Institute of Technology Bombay)

This study focuses on the recycling ecosystem of batteries. Batteries up until recently were primarily used in electronic appliances. However, with the advent of EVs, batteries for traction applications have become synonymous with battery recycling and needs careful and in-depth study.

A dataset of electric school bus adoption in the United States

2022

Author(s): Lazer L, Freehafer L

This technical note describes the methods used to create a dataset that tracks electric school bus (ESB) adoption across the United States. The dataset tracks the number of “committed” ESBs at the school district level, as well as details about individual buses, including bus manufacturer and funding source(s). It also contains school district socio-economic characteristics like poverty rates and racial composition, to enable wider analysis including whether the transition to ESBs is happening equitably.

Within the transport sector, road transport represented the largest share 84.1 percent of transport related GHG emissions in China in 2014 (MEE 2020a). To meet its carbon neutrality goal, China’s road transport sector needs explicit sectoral emission reduction targets, actionable strategies, and cost-effective policy instruments. This study examines how the transport sector might be decarbonized in China.
