What is the battery ecosystem?

Associated with the regulation of batteries, which will generate the regulatory framework so that disused batteries from electric vehicles have an environmentally appropriate management, it is necessary to create and promote an ecosystem that supports said regulations.

This ecosystem includes the set of public and private actors, from the most varied sectors (such as commercial, industrial, and academic, among others), that generate the necessary interactions so that the batteries of electric vehicles can have a second life, adequate recycling and eventual final disposal.

Identifying and developing local capacities is a necessity and an opportunity for the country to generate development opportunities and specific work regarding battery management.

These actors will cover different needs. From testing a battery in a vehicle to know its state of health, which is directly connected to its second-use value. It will be essential to achieve a certification of disused batteries, which will ensure their suitability for a second life. It will also seek to achieve a traceability of the components that make up said battery, in order to establish its value for whoever is going to acquire it for its adaptation and subsequent second use. Finally, there must be actors that allow a total or partial recovery of the components that make up the battery through new recycling technologies, not yet available in the country, but in the world. All this must be accompanied by training for the creation of knowledge and practical skills on the subject.

What role does the MOVÉS Project play in the ecosystem?

In order to accelerate the transformation to sustainable vehicles, MOVÉS will carry out a consultancy to assess the current situation at the country level regarding the needs, opportunities and challenges that concern the creation of the ecosystem. With this study, valuable information will be generated, available to all the actors involved, in order to optimize better decision-making for the promotion of electro mobility.
