Lithium battery production

Clarification of PEGE about the production of lithium batteries. Reply to a study of Roland Berger from February 2010. Short told: Drastic under capacity.

Regretfully is on the web site of Roland Berger no declaration in kWh storage capacity to find. Only nebular "EV-equivalents. At cars could be a "tank equivalent" between 23 and 90 litre. At known electric cars are 12 to 60 kWh built in. So we have to make an assumption, Roland Berger could mean 30 kWh battery with 1 EV-equivalent.

  What are 78 GWh Lithium batteries

In the prognosis of Roland Berger is written 2,6 million EV-equivalents production capacity 2015, this would be 78 GWh batteries. What is possible to do with 78 GWh battery production, when the next oil crisis hit hard? In this case, we have to reduce crude oil consumption to hamper the price from going up like a rocket.

The greatest reduction of oil consumption per kWh lithium batteries have scooters in development countries. There is often the scooter the only vehicle of a family and is used in average 10,000 km a year. 4 times more than a scooter driver in Germany. 2kWh battery for an electric scooter can save there 300 litre gasoline per year. 150 litre per year and kWh battery capacity.

Replacing a small car with Diesel engine, mostly city traffic, 12000 km, 5 litre/100km requires about 15 kWh battery to replace 600 litre Diesel. That's far worse, only 40 litres per year and kWh battery.

  PEGE proposal at oil crisis 2008

As a first measurement proposed PEGE 2008 to replace each year 50 million electric scooters in development countries by electric scooters and photovoltaic. 2 kWh per electric scooter, at 25% of the scooters 4 kWh buffer battery for an immobile photovoltaic system. Makes 150 GWh battery capacity per year.

You see how ridiculous 78 GWh battery production are in view of global problems. Far more ridiculous is to say this would be an overcapacity.

  2010 new dimensions in electric mobility

BYD plans to sell their EV in the US market at the end of 2010. The car market will be transformed when they do. Who comes to late will be punished by life.1990 Erich Honecker and 2010?

No credit because of the Roland Berger lithtium prognoses
Imagine, You have just purchased a license for a far superior new ltihium battery. But Your bank does not want to give a credit for the production equipment.

Mobility 1955 and 2015 in Germany
Mobility 1955 and 2015 will have surprising similarities, when the oil criis prognosticated by IEA hits with full hardness.

Production target for lithium battery industry
Estimation about the magnitude of the required production capacity of lithium batteries to deal with peak-oil and climate change. 100% renewable energy.

Top speed at electric cars
Cars with ICE internal combustion engines are designed, that in the 4th or 5th gear is the maximal engine power reached at top speed.
