EFS and DNV GL published recently an e-mobility paper
It is apparent, that the automotive and the energy industry are confronted with disruptive trends that will change the business models of both industries significantly over the next decade.
This paper investigates how e-mobility will transform the automotive and electric utility industries by converging these two historically distinct sectors to enable a set of new business opportunities.
Whilst the energy industry’s is moving strongly towards a decentralized distribution model, electrification is an equally big trend in the automotive sector. Both trends are currently still in at an early stage, but in the mid-term they will change the way OEMs and utilities will be able to generate business. This paper highlights, how a cooperation between utilities and OEMs can be beneficial for both sides in order to manage the transition smoothly and utilise the core competences of both partners in the most effective and efficient way. In that sense, we have explored several aspects concerning alternative and second use of EV batteries.
