    The Race for Clean Energy

    Energy Infrastructure/Supply Chain
    During the 2020s, six-times more solar, two-times more wind and 37-times more batteries will be required than in the previous decade. Each of these technologies are critical to the decarbonization of the global economy and will rely upon a major scale up of their associated supply chains, from raw materials and manufacturing capacities, to logistics, labor and specialist-skilled engineers. Where will the major bottlenecks and shortages be seen? How can the necessary investments in manufacturing capacity be unlocked? What steps should be taken to ensure supply chains can scale sufficiently?
