On 4 April, logos facilitated the General Assembly of RECHARGE, the European Association for Advanced Rechargeable Batteries. Our energy and environment consultant, Luena Collini, presented the political and regulatory developments relating to the European Union’s industrial policy, with a particular focus on batteries.
Since the beginning of 2019, there is a new momentum for batteries: there are open questions about Important Projects of Common European Interest (IPCEI) on batteries. On the legislative side, there are various files under revision or evaluation: the battery directive, the directive on the end of life of vehicles, and a potential call for proposals on the eco-design of batteries. More is expected in the coming weeks with the expected release of the report on the Implementation of the Strategic Action Plan for batteries.
