EV Battery Supply Chain: Scale, geography & recycling

Tuesday, March 12

04:00 pm - 05:00 pm

Increased sales and penetration of EVs and the leading battery technology are creating pockets of suppliers dominating the market. Small clusters of mining and refining infrastructure are concentrated - creating risks of potential supply interruptions. How will geopolitical concerns factor in the battery supply chain? Is there room - and a resource base - for new entrants to disrupt the status quo? How will recycling and re-use impact the current system?
