Shared autonomous electric vehicles (SAEVs) are expected to become commercially available within the next decade. This technology could transform transport paradigms and alter the availability of controllable storage from electrified transportation. This work describes a novel simulation methodology for investigating the potential for SAEVs to act as storage in the framework of a Virtual Power Plant or a microgrid with intermittent renewable energy. The model simulates aggregate storage availability from vehicles based on transport patterns and optimizes charging. We study the case of a grid-connected VPP with rooftop solar and the case of a isolated microgrid with solar, wind, and dispatchable generation. The results show that SAEVs offer significantly lower costs compared to private vehicles. SAEVs can also substantially increase renewable energy utilization in a microgrid.

In the assessment of critical minerals, environmental impacts have been a focus of a number of methodologies. In the case of resource security for critical minerals, there are a variety of potential strategies that might be used to reduce criticality from the supply risk perspective, but the environmental consequences of these strategies need to be evaluated. Japan is a country with a heavy dependence on imported materials, and thus has examined various alternative resource supply strategies to improve resource security. This study examines these alternative strategies and evaluates the consequential environmental implications, focusing on the domestic impacts in Japan. Utilization of deep ocean mining and end-of-life home appliance recycling are examined as alternatives against the conventional, import-oriented process. From the obtained results, deep ocean mining, providing 30% of domestic copper demand with the remainder supplied from recycling, is the current optimal solution with regards to the environmental impact.
