The first day of the meeting consisted of presentations of each work package’s progress since the previous general assembly.

TVS is leading work package 7, ‘Life Cycle Analysis and Sustainability’ of the project. The key deliverables of the package include the economic and environmental impact of a novel approach, the development and population of the database, the development of a knowledge-based engineering (KBE) design automation system for eco-design and the development of sustainability mode. The development of a Battery passport is going to be one of the milestones of the project that TVS is developing.

As a part of TVS’s activities, Dr. Fahim Chowdhury updated the consortium members about the overall progress of the WP7 and the concept and details of the Battery Passport for Electrical Vehicles and the Digital EV Battery passport in the meeting.
