Article
Wide deployment of electric vehicles (EVs) would greatly facilitate global de-carbonization, but achieving the emission targets depends on future battery prices. Conventional learning curves for manufacturing costs, used in many battery projections, unrealistically predict battery prices will fall below $100/kWh by 2030, pushing EVs to hit price pa...
Article
China is in a fast-growing stage of mobility development, and its increasing demand for private cars comes with growing energy consumption and pollutant emissions. Uncertainty in Chinese parameterization of car ownership models makes forecasting these trends a challenge. We develop an application of the Monte Carlo method, conditioned on historical...
Article
While vehicle electrification offers great benefits to society, mass-market adoption of battery electric vehicles remains a challenge owing to the long recharging times and limited recharging infrastructure. High opportunity costs tied to long recharging times are particularly problematic for commercial fleet operators. With an aim to improve the e...
Article
China has recently enacted the dual-credit mandate to replace the existing subsidies as a continued effort to electrify its ground transportation sector. This study quantifies the impacts of such policy transition on private motorization rate and battery market. Throughout the next decade, affordability remains the determinant for vehicle purchases...
Article
China is driving the transition away from internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEVs) to plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs, including plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and battery electric vehicles (BEVs)) to address its pressing energy security and environmental pollution problems. The recent enactment of the dual-credit scheme mandate will c...
Article
Electric vehicles (EVs) are a promising pathway to providing cleaner personal mobility. China provides substantial supports to increase EV market share. This study provides an extensive analysis of the currently unclear environmental and health benefits of these incentives at the provincial level. EVs in China have modest cradle-to-gate CO2 benefit...
Article
Full-text available
The promotion of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) is pivotal to China’s carbon neutrality strategy. Therefore, it is important to understand the vehicle market evolution and its impacts in terms of costs, sales, industry fuel economy, and PEV’s battery material demand. By examining vehicle technologies, cost, policy incentives, infrastructure, and...
Thesis
Greater production volumes and improvements in manufacturing efficiency will drive down costs, but the prices will eventually stabilize as they get closer to the cost of the materials they are made of. A 2-stage learning curve model is developed to investigate how the essential materials, especially expensive elements (lithium, nickel and cobalt) u...
