What about the batteries?
Battery recycling is included in the End-of-Life (EOL) figures in this study
The values we have referenced are an average of several studies which included battery recycling.
It’s likely that the impact of these EOL emissions will significantly decrease in the coming years as the battery reclaim process develops and a stable supply of used batteries increases. This means the overall emissions across an electric vehicle’s lifecycle will reduce even further.
Electric vehicle uptake
The below statistics display the PriceWaterhouse Coopers (PWC) prediction for the number of electric vehicles in use in Guernsey versus the actual recorded number of electric vans and cars now driven.
