Project: Value chains of a climate friendly automotive industry in Germany

Client: European Climate Foundation (ECF), Brüssel
Duration: 11/2015 – 10/2017
Partner: Cambridge Econometrics (Lead), ElementEnergy, M-Five

The project is focusing on the economic impacts of a decarbonisation of the German car fleet and a corresponding transition of the automotive industry. Project objective is a quantification of economic impacts. The project is supported by a stakeholder group involving automotive, energy and chemical industries as well as associations from industry, consumers and environmental protection.

The economic analysis is undertaken by Cambridge Econometrics applying their E3ME model for Germany to assess economic impacts of different scenarios of diffusion of alternative propulsion technologies for cars, variants of oil prices as well as modifications of value chains. Future technology cost of technologies to be implemented in low carbon cars are derived from technology databases of ElementEnergy and agreed by the stakeholder group.

M-Five analysed the potential modifications of value chains of major technologies to be implemented in low carbon cars, i.e. Lithium-Ion Batteries (LIB) and lightweight construction in particular using fibre reinforced plastics such as those building on carbon fibres. Further we brought the German perspective into the international project team. Our analysis of value chains is presented by two working paper:
