Charged EVs | Everledger and Ford introduce battery passport pilot


Digital transparency firm Everledger and Ford have launched a battery passport pilot for monitoring EV batteries.

“The battery passport idea was launched by the World Battery Alliance (GBA), a multi-stakeholder alliance that brings collectively 110 main worldwide organizations,” says Everledger. “The battery passport is the digital identification of a battery which incorporates details about its supplies and parts and in the end the battery itself.”

The battery passport will use Everledger’s auto ID, blockchain and AI applied sciences to trace batteries in varied EV fashions for six months within the North American market. The businesses will even work with the lithium-ion battery recyclers Cirba Options and Li-Cycle throughout the pilot.

“The Everledger Platform and its battery passport performance positions stakeholders alongside the provision chain to confirm a battery’s materials provenance, chemistry and identification; and measure its sustainability and environmental affect alongside making a marketplace for used batteries that maximizes the restoration of uncooked supplies,” says Everledger founder and CEO Leanne Kemp. “A totally linked and clear battery passport, secured by blockchain expertise, permits electrical automobile producers and house owners to not solely observe and report the lifetime journey of every battery, however more and more, the place these crucial minerals originated and the way these mines stack up with using renewable vitality.”

“Battery restore garages, auto recyclers, public sale homes, repurposers, dismantlers and recyclers that encounter the battery throughout its life additionally profit,” says Everledger. “They may have extra visibility to grasp a battery’s chemistry and historical past with a view to make quicker, extra knowledgeable choices about how its contents can greatest be used, offered or recovered.”

Everledger says it’ll make the battery passport commercially out there after six months of testing.
