Circular Business Models for Extended EV Battery Life

Swedish Electromobility Centre are happy to welcome you to our online seminar on Circular Business Models for Extended EV Battery Life, 21 October 2020

Life After Use: Circular Economy Business Models for the Second-Life of EV Batteries
The ongoing electrification will dramatically increase the number of batteries in the society. A challenge that needs to be addressed already, is how to deal with the large volumes of used and degraded EV batteries in a close future. One way could be to give the batteries a second-life, thus reusing them within another application. This presentation will elaborate upon how a second-life could be facilitated by the use of circular economy business models and also about the components of a potential future value chain.

Perspectives on business model development for second-use of traction batteries
RISE Researchers Derek Diener (Sustainable Business) and Sara Fallahi (Digital Innovation) present insights from their ongoing work in projects on circular business model innovation related to lithium-ion traction batteries. Perspectives from actors of the existing and potential business ecosystem demonstrate both challenges and opportunities to preserve and capture value of traction batteries long after the first planned use.
