Non-flammable, graphene-based lithium-ion batteries approaching stationary storage market

US-based Nanotech Energy’s graphene battery uses proprietary electrodes with a thermally stable separator, and non-flammable electrolyte that is said to be inexpensive to manufacture. The technology is said to be superior in terms of safety and competitive in terms of cell performance.

India’s EV charger market to surge at 46.5% annually until 2030 

The annual electric vehicle (EV) charger shipments will grow to 0.9 million units by the year 2030, from around 17,000 units in 2021. The growth in sales will be driven by government policies and private investments. 

Tamil Nadu could lower carbon emissions by over 36 million tonnes with 5-10% conversion to EV use

A new report says Tamil Nadu could lower carbon emissions by over 36 million tonnes if 5-10% of all two-, three- and four-wheeler vehicle sales in the state during 2022-30 are converted to electric. 


Renewables offer $350 billion investment opportunity by 2030, says Aspire Circle India

A new report by Aspire Circle India estimates the potential of renewable energy and the clean-tech sector according to parameters such as revenue and job creation by 2030, and highlights the top 10 areas for investment.


EV sales to grow at slower-than-expected pace

Sales growth in India’s electric vehicle market will moderate to 75% per year over the next three years, as supply constraints drive up prices of key raw materials for batteries. 


Gensol to make affordable personal mobility and cargo electric vehicles

The Ahmedabad-headquartered renewable energy solution provider will establish a plant in Pune, Maharashtra, to produce personal mobility and cargo electric vehicles priced at INR 5-6 lac ($6,292-$7,550). Production will likely start in October.


Triton EV to manufacture hydrogen-run two-wheelers and three-wheelers in India

New Jersey-headquartered Triton Electric Vehicle, which plans to make electric cars in India, will also roll out hydrogen-run two-wheeler and three-wheeler EVs from its plant in Gujarat.


Battery metals: How quickly can supply ramp up?

A couple of weeks ago, Goldman Sachs sent shockwaves through battery metals markets, issuing a prediction that cobalt and lithium in particular were due for a sharp price decline in the next two years. But London-based Benchmark Mineral Intelligence is loudly pushing back, outlining its reasons why it believes the call on lithium was wrong. Meanwhile, US analyst Wood Mackenzie says that the battery raw material chain will remain tight, but notes that recycling could help to ease the supply deficit.

The long read: E+V = better vehicles

Electric vehicle batteries are packed with energy, with additional battery density and efficiency working to quell range anxiety for drivers. But with that capability lingers a concern from some that EVs may pose a fire risk and a challenge for first responders in the event of accidents. Professor Ray Wills from Future Smart Strategies bought his first EV in 2012 and argues that in terms of safety, EVs remain an easily superior vehicle, and even the tiny fire risk that exists is an ever-diminishing issue.

IHS Markit: Battery prices won’t fall until 2024

The London-based analyst has published a series of clean tech predictions for the year which also highlighted the rising proportion of sub-5MW solar projects in the global market, and cheaper clean energy financing costs even as panel prices continue to rise.
