Unlocking the value in second-life electric vehicle batteries

Unlocking the value in second-life electric vehicle batteries

With global electric vehicle sales hitting 4 million this summer, increasing attention has been paid to the end-of-life issues of EV batteries. Recycling the batteries to recover the raw materials seems to be the default solution. However, after their first life as powertrain for electric cars, the batteries could still hold 70-80% of their initial capacity which can be further utilised in second-life applications such as stationary energy storage before being recycled.

Graphene for vehicle parts

Graphene for vehicle parts

Graphene is a material used in coating, cell phones and even some sporting goods - and soon, will be used under the hood in Ford vehicles, a first in automotive. Ford, along with Eagle Industries and XG Sciences, has found a way to use a very small amount of graphene while achieving major property improvements - more lightweight, better heat conductivity and noise reduction.

Electric motorcycle front-runners at the IDTechEx Show!

Ever since the economic crisis, the motorcycle market in the U.S. has stagnated as the industry has struggled to attract younger, more safety-conscious riders. Electrification is the jump-start needed, and is why the likes of Harley Davidson, U.S. motorcycling icon and survivor of the great depression, is looking to re-invent itself by going electric.

Robotic revolution: why now? A hardware perspective

We have previously argued that everything in the world of robotics is changing. Indeed, we have shown that robots are increasingly becoming collaborative, mobile and intelligent, leaving their confines in factories to enter more aspects of industry and daily life. This trend will have profound long-term economical and societal consequences. Indeed, our report New Robotics and Drones 2018-2038: Technologies, Forecasts, Players forecasts that the market for robots and drones will grow from $66 billion in 2018 to more than 210 billion in 2028.
