Bike Europe focuses on easyLi
The coronavirus crisis has emphasized the overwhelming dependence on Asian supplies. The European bike industry is suffering from components shortages, including batteries, while the market has never been so dynamic and competitive. The new European Battery Regulation is taking shape, putting more emphasis on sustainable development and climate neutral batteries. It is a good time to review and make strategic decisions about European battery (re)design and (re)sourcing.
easyLi Batteries is here to support the European e-bike industry in this journey.
Make product offer unique with unique batteries
Product differentiation has become a key success factor in the fiercely competitive e-bike sector. Whether you are motor manufacturers, electric bike designers, assemblers or distributors, batteries are key components that can make all the difference, for better or for worse. Distinctive battery design, ultimate power performance, innovative electronic management and connected services are key topics of interest. On the battery technology side, higher density electro-chemistries, new cell form factors and suppliers coming from the automotive industry provide new opportunities to be considered.
Secure battery supply chain with European sourcing
The automotive sector concentrates the attention of the whole battery cells industry. It will be years before the European battery gigafactories are up and running to satisfy the car manufacturers’ demand. In the meantime, and probably long after the relocation of battery cell production close to final markets, reliable Li-ion cell sourcing from Asia will remain the common rule. This will be achieved through diversified cell supply sources from a range of top quality battery cells suppliers. Independent cell qualification and continuous quality control, warehousing and production lines in Europe will be key to guarantee reliable and high quality deliveries with 100% traceability.
Be at the forefront of the sustainable mobility revolution
Announced in late 2020, the new European Battery Regulation will replace from 2022 onwards the current Batteries Directive. Among topics under discussion there are the inclusion of carbon footprint reporting, minimum electrochemical performance and durability, reinforced safety requirements, eco-design methodologies for repair, removability, reuse and second life, digital battery passport for full traceability… As battery specialists, easyLi’s teams are closely monitoring these developments and are here to share views and start working on next battery generations.
