European firms will have the capacity to supply all the lithium-ion batteries needed for the continent's automakers by 2025 as they ramp up electric vehicle output to meet strict pollution limits, EU officials said Friday. The bloc is banking on its European Battery Alliance, launched in 2017, to reduce its reliance on batteries and other technologies imported from the US or Asia while pursuing its Green Deal goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.

Governments across Southeast Asia accelerate renewable energy investment

ASEAN energy ministers agreed to set a target of 23% share of renewable energy in total primary energy supply in the region and 35% in ASEAN installed power capacity by 2025. This would require approximately 35GW-40GW of renewable energy capacity to be added by 2025. Solar PV and hydropower are expected to support the majority of this renewable-led transition. Under the National Renewable Energy Plan (NREP) 2020–2040, the Philippine government targets to have at least 34GW of renewable energy installations by 2040. The government’s plan to open renewable energy for 100% foreign ownership is…
