Outsmarting thermal runaway through predictive maintenance is within everybody’s benefit Just like gold, the battery industry has been around for a long time now, and the users are naturally questioning, “can there be a new, or better element fully replacing them?”, and just like for gold, for batteries as well we can answer with a question “is what we have now so bad, or did we never use them properly?”. To get relief from this agonizing question, let’s have a look into the battery industry as such. What are some of the general trends within “the batteries’’? why are people so afraid

“The harsh treatment that shared escooter and ebike batteries receive is the cause of more than half of life-cycle emissions of the industry,” says Simon Fellin, CEO of Teleport Mobility AB, a Swedish startup whose founding team boasts almost 100 years of experience from the transportation and mobility sector. He adds: “Battery pack production accounts for about one third, or approx 60 kg CO​2-​ eq (median of 118.5 CO​2-​ eq/kWh - ICCT 2018*) of the total production emissions of a shared vehicle. However, since batteries are sensitive to both temperature and impact, they do not last nearly as long as
