Electric Cars the facts that the public don't know

Cobalt supplies
However, a recent report suggested that the UK’s electric cars will need twice the world’s supply of cobalt.

UK demand for EV batteries will require almost the total amount of neodymium produced globally each year, three quarter’s of the world’s lithium, and “at least half” of the world’s copper.

Materials necessary to replace the two billion cars in the world would require four times the UK’s total annual electrical output.

But why does need a team of scientists to raise the red flag?

In 2013 it was reported that the UK very nearly suffered a national black-out, with just a four per cent reserve of electricity, and the National Grid urged businesses to limit their electricity needs.

Enappsys, which monitors wholesale electricity market data, suggest that the grid had an even more difficult job keeping the lights on last year, when it took new emergency measures to increase supplies with electricity sourced from abroad.

So, my first question is where does the future EV electricity supply come from?

And, what we do with the end of life batteries?

The European Union and China has already introduced regulations which make vehicle manufacturers responsible for recycling batteries.

There is still a question, however, over whether or not manufacturers will use recycled materials due to liability fears.

Many tyre manufacturers, for example, are still reluctant to use recycled rubber.

So, what do we do with these discarded batteries?

For me, these two questions need to be answered before I wholeheartedly embrace EVs as the long term future of cars.

I think instead of totalling relying on electric which the UK couldn’t sustain, they should concentrate on improving self charging hybrids. O% emissions and no drain on the National Grid. Best of both worlds and achievable.

Electric was OK for milk carts, the emissions from petrol vehicles seems to be falling with stop start helping.
