A thread on #ElectricVehicles 👇

Since it's generally perceived that using a Diesel generator to charge an EV is ridiculous, I was wondering how the running cost of an electric scooter compare against a ICE scooter, if the EV was charged from a petrol/diesel generator.
To understand this, we need to look at the fuel requirements of a PG/DG set. Unfortunately, very few sellers directly mentions the fuel required per kWh, so I had to calculate it myself using the parameters like tank capacity, duration of running, load, etc.
What I found was a small domestic 3kW Petrol generator uses about 0.4-0.5 liter petrol per kWh, & Industrial DGs (500kW) use about 0.25 liter diesel per kWh of electricity generated.

So, bigger the generator, better is the fuel efficiency, & PGs use about twice the fuel as DGs.

This Friday, EU energy ministers aim to decide on measures to soften the impact of the escalating #gas and #electricity bills on households and businesses. The decisions should be guided by the following principles. A 🧵 1/10
Direct, timely & targeted payments to households & companies that need support are better than general public spending to lower energy prices for all consumers. The latter is very costly & can undermine the crucial need to save as much energy as possible before winter. 2/10
Current pricing mechanisms in #electricity market work and must be maintained. Marginal pricing is central to the integration of renewables and necessary to incentivise uptake of #heatpumps and #electricvehicles. Read more in our new paper (in German) bit.ly/3fs6Rmj 3/10

#Technology: "One way to reduce #transport emissions relatively quickly, and potentially globally, is to swap cars for #cycling, e-#biking and #walking – active travel, as it’s called."

"Tackling the #climate and air #pollution #crises requires curbing all motorised #transport, particularly private cars, as quickly as possible. Focusing solely on #ElectricVehicles is slowing down the race to zero emissions."
"We also estimate that urban residents who switched from driving to cycling for just one trip per day reduced their carbon footprint by about half a tonne of CO₂ over the course of a year, and save the equivalent emissions of a one-way flight from London to New York."

⚡️NEW REPORT⚡️:
Our new modelling report from @DavidSuzukiFDN shows that 100% zero-emissions electricity across Canada by 2035 is possible, reliable and affordable.

Buckle up for a #CleanElectricity thread 🧵

bit.ly/CleanElectrici…

#Climate #energytwitter #cdnpoli
This is the first modelling report of its kind in Canada. It goes beyond #NetZero to reach #ZeroEmissions by 2035, primarily by relying on:

☀️#Renewables like wind & solar
🔋#EnergyStorage
🏡#EnergyEfficiency
🌊Existing #Hydropower
🔌More grid connections between regions
Overall, Canada's electricity capacity grows by 2.8x by 2050, and the amount of electrical energy we use grows by 1.8x

All #FossilFuels on the grid are phased out by 2035, including all #NaturalGas. And no nuclear or fossils with #CCUS are needed.

Electrification is not going to save us from the energy crisis that we’ve entered. Several factors point to prolonged tightness in crude oil markets that can only be solved by increasing supply. A 🧵. 1/n
Oil price levels and volatility have increased dramatically in 2022, reaching heights over $140/bbl before settling back to levels in the low $100s. For comparison, 2015-2019 saw prices generally in the $40-60/bbl range. So (captain obvious!) they are much higher now. 2/
Why? First, demand. Relaxed covid restrictions and residual effects of gov't stimmies have unleashed pent up travel activity, along with a return to normal. Global oil consumption is back to pre-COVID levels, and we haven't yet entered the high demand (summer) season. 3/

#Thread about EV Bikes & why @ather is solid?

The biggest lesson that @OlaElectric taught to all aspirational startups is that if you wanna disrupt the market come with a solid foolproof product rather than dumping the garbage. ⬇️ (1/14)

It was in the year 2017 I read about a passionate product incubated in IIT Madras. A group of engineers trying to build a world-class eScooter naming the company Ather Energy. EVs are not new to South India. (2/14)
*Below image is the first newsletter I received from Ather
↗️Reva 1994 - a pioneer & first functional EV car started in #Bengaluru later sold to @MahindraRise
↗️@ampere_ev bikes started 2007 in #Coimbatore later invested by @RNTata2000 himself & now sold to Greaves.
They're way ahead of their time when India is not ready for EVs (3/14)

Improper initial and after sales QC a major reason for EV battery Fires.

#ElectricVehicles #India
Most of the EV battery packs are directly imported to match the pricing points.
Unfavorable weather conditions, inappropriate cell configuration and usage of non graded cells are the major reasons for such hazardous events.

What is the use of Lithium?

• Lithium is a key component of lithium-ion batteries used in Electric Vehicles (EV)
Lithium-ion batteries are bringing a whole new reality to the world of energy.

And in this need of the hour, India doesn't have enough lithium reserves for lithium-ion batteries 😟

I can talk about where $SDRC is going until I'm green in the face.

Thread:
@SDRCMINING can be quoted projecting profitable #gold production at $400 per oz spot. This is an industry-breaking metric. Let finding out why be the theme that leads you down this rabbit hole.
A real need exists as less & less material is found globally as a result of exploration every year. When a mine is deemed unfeasible, it halts. So many open mines lay dormant or haven't started due to vein structures too narrow or because of environmental hurdles imposed by govts

#lithium carbonate breaks $510k yuan/ton which is $80k USD - almost a $10k increase in the last fortnight. A small thread on why this matters below for #electricvehicles and #lithium #mining stocks. Happy punting all.
#Spot #lithium traded as above is usually representative of tiny volumes at different districts in China. Could probably spend a whole thread describing lithium prices in different areas but that'd be a waste of time. Take away point is the volume is tiny but it's a trend.
The head price you see here is representative of what traders/chemical producers are getting for product sold typically to #cathode #producers who use the chemicals to create lithium batteries.

#Russia’s nickel & Germany’s #cathode and auto #EV industry.

Nornickel + #BASF: An long term term partnership descends into an unholy alliance

As Russia attacks Ukraine, our industry’s eyes are fixed on @BASF and what it does next

And here’s why…

#UkraineUnderAttack
Russia’s Nornickel (Norilsk) supplies 20% of world’s class 1 nickel - the suitable supply for lithium ion batteries and #ElectricVehicles (and 7% of global nickel)

Most of this goes to China.

#UkraineUnderAttack
Germany was relying on expanded future supply of Russian #nickel as a key pillar in its battery and #EV expansion

This is via the partnership between Nornickel and German chemical / cathode maker, #BASF

Thread on the effects of the #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine on global energy markets
1- Will oil prices continue to rise? Will they remain high? Will they decline? The answer depends on the types of additional sanctions that might be imposed in the coming g days by the US & EU. Image
2- This raises another question: what can the Biden's & EU governments do? The answer consists of two parts. The first relates to the ineffectiveness of sanctions. The second relates to the dependence of the US & Europe on Russian energy sources & other materials such as pig iron
3- The main objective of economic sanctions is to force the opponent to change his/her position on something. The academic literature shows that sanctions in the last 120, although painful, failed to achieve their “declared” goals. #OOTT #Russia
