Last call for contributions to electric vehicle battery market consultation

Electric vehicle battery

Electric vehicle stakeholders have until June 22 to submit responses to Innovate UK and BSI Standards’ consultation on the EV battery market.

Charley Grimston, chief executive at Altelium, the warranty partner delivering information for the electric vehicle and stationary battery storage market, urged all stakeholders to get involved.

He said: “A Publicly Available Specification (PAS) or standardised document for vehicle propulsion electric batteries will span every aspect of the battery lifecycle and use, from manufacture, transport, servicing, recycling to end of life, in fact everything concerning the safe and environmentally-conscious handling of battery packs and modules.

“It will touch on hundreds of businesses in the UK as combustion engines are switched off and the electric battery market expands.”

Grimston said a well-crafted PAS allows all businesses in the supply chain to work to agreed terms and build confidence in the market.

He also said that from an insurer’s perspective, PAS can become a bedrock in establishing quality.

Grimston is one of a dozen representatives from the electric battery industry to help review the standards.

Other businesses involved in the PAS are drawn from the engineering and manufacturing side.

Grimston said: “We are proud to represent our industry and help shape this PAS but more businesses in this rapidly developing market should get involved.

“This is an opportunity for the UK to demonstrate its commitment to quality and consistency, a great hallmark for any industry."
