About the event
As we move into 2021 the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic, however, the hype around electrification remains resilient. EV sales, particularly in Europe and China, proved robust in 2020, and OEMs and cell producers made further moves towards integrating their supply chains. Meanwhile, even lithium prices saw signs of life in the final weeks of last year.
Looking ahead this year remains highly unpredictable - hinging as it does on the timely rollout of vaccinations that will allow some return to normality. However, excitement and interest around the electrification of transport is one likely constant. Add to that increasing support from governments around the world for a ‘greener’ recovery from the current downturn, and this year could again surprise many.
Join us as we discuss these key issues and what you need to know about EV and battery markets in 2021 and beyond:
- EV sales – immune to the pandemic?
- Battery supply chains – going from globalised to regionalised
- Have battery metals’ prices bottomed out?
- New developments in cell chemistries and their implications
