Friday Session 1: System level tools for understanding networked electric vehicle economy
Dr. Peter Ylén, Dr. Sami Majaniemi
Continuing the Network Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) theme from Thursday, we will present the participants the benefits of shared information production on a web platform. In order to enable a large scale circular economy design by many participants, it is necessary to develop tools which enable the interested parties of Circular Economy networks to plan their actions and assess the impacts of these actions both individually and collectively. For this purpose, we need systemic level simulation models, whose evaluation principles (data, metadata, simulation model codes) should be openly accessible and improvable by all network members continuously.
Assessment Method related goals: Develop collectively a useful, scientifically sound and improvable model for electric vehicle economy, which can be used by all participants and other interested parties also after the workshop
Application areas: electric vehicle battery production, usage and recycling/re-manufacturing, electric care manufacturing and consumer behavior.
Linked modeling domains (data flow in the upscaling model chain): Life Cycle Assessment model -> Life Cycle Cost (LCC) model -> System Dynamic economy model
Learning goals: Participants learn that there are tools that everyone can use either on their own or with the aid of experts (e.g. life cycle assessment consultancy) in planning and testing circular economy activities (production, products, re-cycling etc.). The participants will learn the value of quality data and metadata as well as the value of shared, privacy respecting information sharing.
