i)      From our research work the Cambridge econometrics report analysis please see attached 


  1. E3ME is often compared to Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models. In many ways the modelling approaches are similar; they are used to answer similar questions and use similar inputs and outputs. However, underlying this there are important theoretical differences between the modelling approaches.
  2. In a typical CGE framework, optimal behaviour is assumed, output is determined by supply-side constraints and prices adjust fully so that all the available capacity is used. In E3ME the determination of output comes from a post-Keynesian framework and it is possible to have spare capacity. The model is more demand-driven and it is not assumed that prices always adjust to market clearing levels.
  3. The differences have important practical implications, as they mean that in E3ME regulation and other policy may lead to increases in output if they are able to draw upon spare economic capacity. This is described in more detail in the model manual.
  4. The econometric specification of E3ME gives the model a strong empirical grounding. E3ME uses a system of error correction, allowing short-term dynamic (or transition) outcomes, moving towards a long-term trend. The dynamic specification is important when considering short and medium-term analysis (e.g. up to 2020) and rebound effects, which are included as standard in the model’s results.
  5. Basic Structure and data used
  6. The structure of E3ME is based on the system of national accounts, with further linkages to energy demand and environmental emissions. The labour market is also covered in detail, including both voluntary and involuntary
  7.  Cambridge Econometrics 35
  9. unemployment. In total there are 33 sets of econometrically estimated equations, also including the components of GDP (consumption, investment, international trade), prices, energy demand and materials demand. Each equation set is disaggregated by country and by sector.
  10. E3ME’s historical database covers the period 1970-2018 and the model projects forward annually to 2050. The main data sources for European countries are Eurostat and the IEA, supplemented by the OECD’s STAN database and other sources where appropriatFor regions outside Europe, additional sources for data include the UN, OECD, World Bank, IMF, ILO and national statistics. Gaps in the data are estimated using customised software algorithms.
  11. The main dimensions of E3ME are:
  12. • 61 countries – all major world economies, the EU28 and candidate countries plus other countries’ economies grouped
  13. • 44 (or 70 in Europe) industry sectors, based on standard international classifications
  14. • 28 (or 43 in Europe) categories of household expenditure
  15. • 22 different users of 12 different fuel types
  16. • 14 types of air-borne emission (where data are available) including the 6 GHG’s monitored under the Kyoto Protocol

  1. Risk

In a worst-case outcome, with no large scale UK battery production, domestic vehicle producers would gradually wind down their production of internal combustion engine vehicles, progressively eliminating the jobs of the 186,000 people directly employed in the UK automotive sector.


19 Jan 2023  What's clear is that batteries are going to be a big issue in Europe going forward. The UK needs to build much greater battery capacity, and ...


27 Jul 2021  The report warns the UK government should support access to critical raw materials for 

If EV batteries continue to be made of lithium ion, the primary concerns are: 1) labor practices for mining cobalt; 2) environmental impacts of extracting lithium; 3) sufficient supply of materials for EV batteries; 4) carbon emissions from battery manufacture; and 5) toxic waste from disposal of used batteries.


  1. People also ask - What are the problems with making electric car batteries?
  2. What are the factors affecting the performance of batteries used in electric vehicles?

m) The factors such as current, internal resistance, SOC and temperature which affect coulomb efficiency and voltage efficiency, will affect energy efficiency as well.

n)   The major challenge is costs. Battery technology is expensive, and because batteries in electric cars need to be able to hold massive amounts of charge to make the cars practical for most drivers, they have to be built using expensive materials, most of which are tough to procure.


o)   Lack of charging infrastructure

p)   Low capacity charging points. Another issue manufacturers need to address is low capacity charging points. ...

q)   Fragmented EV charging ecosystem. Furthermore, manufacturers are also faced with a fragmented charging ecosystem. ...

r)    Limited journey range.

s)    8 Mar 2022


t)     UGB will overcome boundaries with these points moving forward to accelerate our quality in production. Our secrets are spiritual just see it happening. Physically we and our team staffs are present with our machinery’s we give command and it is executed and that is what it takes to create traditionally both in the community, Nation and World at Large,  in the marketing sector we check our competitors to reach our objectives and goals working strategically.
