Hi again,

Welcome to a new edition of the State of Charge newsletter - a concise monthly overview of the renewable energy and e-mobility transition. 
This time, we take a look at the 26th Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, a new air travel revolution, and we listen to a podcast on EV terminology with a rock&roll twist.

SoC Big Story

Earlier this month, leaders from 196 countries gathered at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Convention. Even though a motion to restrict sales of new ICE cars by 2040 was widely supported the largest car markets (e.g., USA, Germany, and China) and car producers (Toyota and Volkswagen) have not signed the agreement. Again underwriting how fragile and economically sensitive climate consensus still is. 

Find the complete overview of decisions made at COP26 here. For a much shorter summary of some of the more critical decisions, click the read more button.

SoC Deep Dive 

Sodium vs. Lithium. Is Sodium a real contender, or just the next battery fab?

Sodium batteries have many advantages, they work better in low temperatures and theoretically have a longer lifespan. Raw material costs are also lower, so the economics are favorable. Sodium batteries would put us ahead of the game in meeting our climate targets.

For electric cars to be more accessible batteries must become cheaper and more efficient across the globe.
