EV Batteries: Creating a Circular Economy In 2018, the total global stock of electric vehicles in all classes stood at nearly 6 million. By 2030, the International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates this number will have reached between 130-250 million. The need to electrify transportation is essential if we are to meet the goals outlined by the Paris Agreement because EV vehicles could potentially reduce well-to-wheel GHG emissions by half compared to vehicles powered by internal combustion engines. However, challenges loom.
With the increase in research on the circular economy system, the basic income and circular economy relationship has also started to be considered. For example, this relationship was examined in the article ‘‘How could a Basic Income support a Circular Economy?’’ published on the Basic Income Network Scotland website on 23 July 2019. In fact, this article is based on the transcript of an interview between Timothea Armor, Basic Income Network Scotland Editor, and Teja Hudson, a zero waste consultant and founder of Zero.
