Abstract for: Life cycle management of electric vehicles in Norway, and its effects on SDGs achievement using the Integrated Assessment Model

Norway has experienced rapid growth in electrics vehicles (EV) sales since 2010, and the number of EV in 2019 is 269.688 units with a market share of 42%. This is in part a result of the policies implemented by the Norwegian government to stimulate the purchase and use of EV. With the current market development and governmental policies, it is expected that by 2030 the EV stock in Norway will reach almost 2.5 million units. This paper focuses on assessing the sustainability of the EV sector, specifically in regard to the volume of lithium-ion batteries (LIB) units to be disposed and the electric energy required to supply the market and its effects on performance on SDG goals.
