Learning Level: 201: Applies to those with some experience who are looking to build on or enhance existing knowledge.
As demand for electric vehicles continue to grow, stakeholders will need to take the necessary steps to ensure the supply chain will be able to produce enough batteries to power them. What lessons on trade and manufacturing can be learned from other industries, like solar, to prepare for increasing demand? This session will define the current EV battery supply chain, its challenges, and the work being done to bolster it. Our experts will also investigate what challenges and opportunities a growing grid scale battery industry will have on EV deployment.
