Environment: Orgalim's response to a public consultation on sustainability requirements for batteries
Published: 27 August 2019
Policies & Issues: Environment
Battery technologies play a key role in decarbonising the road transport sector and contribute to energy storage solutions, both for domestic and grid applications. Their large-scale deployment has the potential to make a substantial contribution to the Energy Union and sustainable mobility policies. At the same time, the production and use of batteries can induce negative environmental impacts, notably in terms of energy and resource use.
The Strategic Action Plan on Batteries announced an action for the Commission to put forward requirements for sustainable battery design and use for all batteries placed on the EU market. The initiative “sustainability requirements for batteries” is the implementation of this action and may result in regulatory intervention setting out minimum sustainability requirements.
