An Accelerated Energy Transition *batteries not included

Report summary

Under our most recent base case view, supply of materials like lithium, cobalt, nickel, graphite and manganese appears largely adequate over a 10-year forecast horizon. The prospect of a fast-tracked decarbonisation story, an ‘Accelerated Energy Transition’ as we call it, naturally raises many questions for us in terms of how battery raw materials supply-chains might cope. Here we examine possible scenarios for faster decarbonisation of transport, and their key implications.
