KEY THEMES

  • Targeting Tonnage: Asia Pacific's role in the global battery arms race to 300TWh deployed capacity
  • Shifting thinking from GWh to TWh for true Net Zero by 2050: Charting the rise of battery gigafactories in the Asia Pacific
  • Innovation in the chemistry and design from the cell pack to the anodes, cathodes, and how this will impact the critical materials required
  • Regional Gigafactory expansion considerations: site location, size, technology, ESG, circularity and partnerships required
  • Building sustainable battery supply chains from the mine site onwards: decarbonised operations, managing environmental & social impacts, and good corporate governance
  • Circularity, recycling and tracing:will new technologies and improved collection strategies impact the race for critical minerals?
  • Understanding the lithium ion battery ecosystem: What is the role of OEMs and Tier One suppliers, in the race to build secure and sustainable supply chains?
  • Developing Speciality Commodities: What does this mean for the critical minerals of lithium, graphite, cobalt, nickel, manganese, and silicon?
  • Aligning policy, finance and global partnerships to strengthen the energy and green mobility future of the Asia Pacific
  • Views from across the region: China, Korea, Australia, India, Indonesia
  • Risk and reward: building Rare Earths mine and refining capacity
  • Building sustainable battery supply chains from the mine site onwards: decarbonising operations, managing environmental & social impacts and good corporate governance
