On Tuesday, the @EUparliament passed a groundbreaking policy framework that will make electric vehicle batteries sold in 🇪🇺 more sustainable – and can serve as a blueprint for battery policies worldwide.🔋⚡️

Here are 4 key aspects of this policy in a short 🧵.👇

#EVs #batteries Image
1⃣Responsible and sustainable #mining.

The regulation mandates due diligence obligations for companies selling batteries in 🇪🇺.

Companies are required to identify and mitigate social and environmental risks in the supply chain of cobalt, lithium, nickel, and natural graphite.
2⃣Lower emissions in battery production.

The regulation mandates that companies assess and declare the #lifecycle carbon footprint of their batteries.

From 2028, only #EVbatteries produced below a maximum carbon footprint threshold value can be sold in the 🇪🇺.

The pace of #innovation in electric vehicles is mind-blowing. It's not just about #batteries, but also #electricdrives, #powerelectronics, #software, and #batterymanagement. Image
These advancements mean better #energyefficiency, increased range, and lower costs. With fewer parts, economies of scale will soon make electric vehicles as affordable as internal combustion engines. The future is electric! ⚡️🚗 #EVs #CleanTransportation Image
Long-haul trucking and farm & mining equipment pose interesting challenges. Will it be all #batteries or a combo of #fuelcells and batteries? My bet is on batteries dominating the field due to their innovation and scalability. Fuel cells are still in their early stages Image

Rs 420cr wrongly charged by @atherenergy & @OlaElectric to scooters owners? 📛📛📛

This wild & unethical play has got the Govt up in arms against them!

Here’s all you should know 👇 Image
As per Govt’s Vahan portal, the number of scooters sold by Ola & Ather to date (as per Vahan) stand at 1.72L & 1.25L.

But Vahan portal doesn’t yet include sales from Telangana & Lakshwadeep. Thus, let’s round up the sales to account for some of that:

🔆 Ola: 1.8L
🔆 Ather: 1.3L
But, what really drove those big numbers?

🔆 Govt’s FAME scheme which has been massively subsidising electric scooters

🔆 In layman terms, the scheme says that after subsidy, the ex-showroom of a price of a scooter should be <Rs 1.5L. And this subsidy could go up to Rs 60k!

Climate Group's @abarranco on the IRA and IIJA:

"These historic climate investments will accelerate the transition to a US green economy, creating whole new sectors of clean energy jobs, green and resilient infrastructure, and technology innovation." Image
The ambition from @GovWesMoore: We want Maryland to be the offshore wind capital of the world. In partnership with other sectors, we have a chance to advance climate solutions in a meaningful and sustainable way. Incentivize capital and incentivize movement. Image
"The private sector has led on the study of climate risk impacts. Politics cannot get in the way of this - we can’t interfere with progress on climate action." - @GovWesMoore Image

1/ Have you ever wondered how an electric vehicle (EV) charge curve works, why charge curves are so variable between EV's, or why EV's throttle power?

Lets deep dive into the physics and answer your EV questions.

An Electric Thread 🧵⚡️👇

What is an EV charge curve?

The charge curve of an EV typically shows how the battery charges over time. As the battery charges, the charging speed gradually decreases until it reaches its full capacity.

The charge curve is influenced by various factors, such as battery chemistry, charging infrastructure, and temperature.

Lithium-ion batteries have a limited charging capacity, and charging too fast can cause overheating or damage to the battery.

1/ Did you know that the average EV driver fills up with less then a gallon of gas of energy each trip to a EV fast charging station? Think about that!

Let's explore what is behind this & the implication for the future of car refill

Buckle up drivers for an Electric Thread 🧵⚡️
2/ According to publicly available data from @ElectrifyAm, the average amount of energy an EV driver fills up with at fast charging stations is only 33kWh per trip.

At an efficiency of 4 miles per kWh, that's around 132 miles of range per session.
3 / For comparison, gas cars have a range of about 350 miles per tank with 12 gallons of gas.

While EVs still have some catching up to do, the growing availability and convenience of fast charging stations are making them an increasingly viable option for daily driving

LiCoO2, LFP, LTO, NMC, LMO y NCA son tipos de baterías de iones de #litio que se utilizan comúnmente en vehículos eléctricos #EVs. Cada uno de ellos tiene sus propias características y ventajas #invertir #mining 🧵👇 Image
LiCoO2: Las baterías LiCoO2 utilizan un compuesto de cobre, hierro y cobalto como material catódico y tienen una alta densidad de energía. Sin embargo, también son relativamente sensibles a los cambios de temperatura y pueden ser menos duraderas que otras baterías.
LFP: Las baterías LFP utilizan un compuesto de hierro y fósforo como material catódico y tienen una baja densidad de energía. Sin embargo, son muy estables y resistentes a los cambios de temperatura y tienen una larga vida útil.

My big wish for #European #energy in 2023 is that the @EU_Commission and European #governments push the rollout of #smartmeters and #smarttariffs across the continent.
Why do I say that? Because #smartmeters and #smarttariffs give #energy customers the ability to control their own destiny by enabling them to switch off and on devices depending on how expensive #powerprices are.
#smartmeters and #Smarttariffs enable new #businessmodels such as what @OctopusEnergy are offering. In addition, #digitalisation will allow the smoother and quicker integration of #EVs into the system as well as smart #heating.

BREAKING: @EcologyWA adopted three life-saving clean vehicle rules that will put WA on track to slash transportation emissions, put more pollution-free vehicles on the road & deliver air pollution relief to the communities that need it most #EVsSaveLives🎉…
"Urgency can be a powerful opportunity - it's fitting for the Evergreen State to join California & Vermont in taking bold measures to nurture our environment & plot a trail for the rest of the country to follow" - Wes Stewart, @SierraClubWASt #CleanTransportationForAll Organizer
#DYK Trucks and buses are responsible for 59% of smog & 53% of deadly diesel pollution? These toxic pollutants are able to lodge deep in the lungs. Thank you @EcologyWA for adopting the Heavy-Duty Omnibus Rule that will put more low-pollution trucks on the road! 🚚🤢 Image

Picture of the Week: Speed of change around #energytransition is accelerating. Last year the @IEA projected that #renewableenergy installations would be 1800GW over the next five years. Now they are saying that it will be 2,400GW which is the installed capacity of #China.
Why is the #energytransition accelerating:
1. Geopolitics - #Ukrainian crisis has forced #Europe to accelerate #decarbonization. It has also been a wake up call for #China who is a huge #energy importer.
Why is the #energytransition accelerating:
2. Opportunity - #EVs, #batteries, #heatpumps and #Solar are multi-billion dollar markets growing at circa 40% per annum and are attracting the best entrepreneurs and businesses across the world

There is a lot of #china bashers out there particularly with regards #energy. The bottom line though is that #China is not only the biggest producers of #solarpanels, #inverters #windturbines and #batteries in the world but also the biggest market for all these products.
This year #china will install circa 100GW of #solarpanels. If you add the 50GW from last year the country has installed over the last 18 months more than the total installed base of the #Unitedstates.
#china will install over 50GW of #wind in 2022 which is more than 50% of all global wind turbines installed this year.
