Global battery production capacity will increase

While electrification in transportation needs to be increased in order to achieve global emission targets, battery production for electric vehicles is expected to increase to 6,600 gigawatt hours in 2030.

According to the compilation of the AA correspondent from the report titled "Zero Emissions in 2050: A Roadmap for the Global Energy Sector" prepared by the International Energy Agency, in order to reach the battery production capacity foreseen for 2030, the facility with an annual production capacity of 35 gigawatt-hours, approximately 20 units per year, is needed. needs to be built. While a radical transformation is needed for the global energy sector to reach the zero emission target in 2050, the concentration of this transformation in the electricity, transportation and production sectors is of great importance in terms of reaching the targets. With the increase in the share of clean energy sources, electrification is expected to play a key role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the share of electric vehicles in the global automotive market is expected to increase from 5 percent today to 60 percent in 2030. According to the report, it is estimated that almost all vehicles to be sold will be electric by 2025, and almost all heavy vehicles will be hydrogen fuel cell or electric by 2050. Thus, it is predicted that global battery production capacity for electric vehicles will increase from the current level of 160 gigawatt hours per year to 6,600 gigawatt hours by 2030.
