MIT artikel om Li och Co till batterier

av Magnus Karlström

Forskare från Massachusetts Institute of Technology har gjort bedömningen att den absoluta tillgången till metaller inte kommer begränsa produktionen av litium-jon batterier, men tillfälliga flaskhalsar kan uppkomma [1].

Flaskhalsarna kan uppkomma om inte tillräckligt bra planering görs [1].

Litium och kobolt är de två metallerna som kan få störst problem med flaskhalsar [1,2]. Kobolt har de största riskerna b la att den geografiska koncentrationen av utvinning och produktion av kobolt är så stor [2]. Fortsätt läsa MIT artikel om Li och Co till batterier

Near Term EV Deployment Might Happen Faster Than Lithium Can be Mined

EV Stock Will Increase Very Quickly, Very Soon

The demand for Electric Vehicles could grow to as much as 20 million worldwide by 2020, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA) [1]. The scenario is based primarily on estimates related to the cumulative announcements of new vehicle releases from OEMs, but it also lines up with the commitments that UNFCCC member countries made to support the deployment of EVs as part of the 2015 Paris Agreement. This is the highest possible scenario that the IEA accounts for based on cumulative OEM announcements, the lowest possible scenario of that type that they predict is 9 million EVs in stock by 2020.

In a graph on page 6 of their Global EV Outlook 2017, the IEA considers country targets, OEM announcements, as well as decreasing battery costs and increasing energy density to draw deployment scenarios for EVs, which in this case includes both Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) [1]. Currently, the global EV stock has just passed 2 million in 2016 [1], so an increase to 20 million would represent a 10 fold increase.
