Batteries for Electric Mobility



The IEA and the Electric Vehicle Initiative of the Clean Energy Ministerial, organised a technical workshop on batteries for electric mobility.  The workshop consisted of four roundtables, opened by a few scene setter presentations, that allowed to discuss some of the key developments in the battery sector that underpin the recent and projected increase in electric mobility. The topics covered in each roundtable, as well as the presentations, are listed here:

1.  Battery chemistries: implications for current cost/performance estimates and potential cost reductions/performance improvements

2.  Battery manufacturing: scale-up challenges and opportunities as a result of increased adoption of EVs

3.  Material demand for batteries and potential supply constraints

4.  End-of-life: second/third life opportunities and battery recycling
