Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the growing adoption of electric vehicles (EV) and the increased electrification of transportation, there is an anticipation of widespread proliferation of battery energy storage devices and systems in the entire supply chain which requires careful planning to ensure that the market eco-system is truly contributing to the circular economy. Multi-faceted design strategies for the EV charging infrastructure including battery swapping, re-use, recycling, and green disposal are necessary to ensure that the original motivation of decarbonization and holistic sustainability is not compromised. We invite papers from academic scholars, industry leaders, and national public sector planners for them to share their current design thinking, latest technological advancements, standards, certification, and policies to achieve this goal. Sub-topics include but are not limited to:

  • Green charging infrastructure—design for sustainability
  • Battery swapping concepts and technologies
  • Battery re-use, re-conditioning, recycling and n-life batteries
  • Battery condition monitoring and health prognosis
  • Battery and electric vehicle eco-systems
  • Battery safety considerations and design for safety
  • Battery and EV testing and certification
  • Battery supply chain traceability
  • Battery energy storage circular economy—policies and strategies
  • Batteries and greenhouse emissions
  • Sustainable energy storage devices, systems, and designs

The used power batteries of new energy vehicles have become a combined issue of environmental pollution, resource scarcity, and economic sustainability. Power battery recycling is inevitably becoming the key link in the formation of the green closed-loop supply chain for new energy vehicles and the green cycle of the new energy vehicles industry. This study establishes a three-party evolutionary game model of “new energy vehicle manufacturers, power battery manufacturers, and power battery recyclers”, simulates the dynamic evolution process of each game player’s strategy, and analyzes the effects of the digital transformation factor and other factors leading to the evolution trend. The main results show that: (i) in the absence of sufficient incentives and constraints, the green closed-loop power battery supply chain cannot be formed naturally; (ii) digital transformation is an important factor in the journey of the green closed-loop supply chain for power battery recycling, and (iii) government rewards and penalties can promote the formation of the green closed-loop supply chain for power batteries. This research innovatively investigates the concept of the green closed-loop power battery supply chain and its formation mechanism, which provides theoretical support to promote the recycling of used power batteries to achieve sustainability.
