KEY THEMES

-  Targeting American Tonnage: The role of the USA 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 and their importance to global geopolitics

-  Understanding the lithium ion battery ecosystem: What is the role of automotive OEMs and Tier One suppliers, in the race to build secure and sustainable supply chains?

- Impacts of the Inflation Reduction Act: What implications of the US Government's large-scale stimulus policy targeted at clean energy supply chains have emerged?

-  Developing Speciality Commodities: What does this mean for the critical minerals of lithium, graphite, cobalt, nickel, manganese, and silicon?

-  Circularity, recycling and tracing:will new technologies and improved collection strategies impact the race for critical minerals?

-  Aligning policy, finance and global partnerships to strengthen America’s energy and green mobility future

-  US Gigafactory expansion considerations: site location, size, technology, ESG, circularity and partnerships required

- Energy Storage Systems (ESS): Understanding the dynamics of the next wave of lithium ion battery demand

-  Building sustainable battery supply chains from the mine site onwards: decarbonised operations, managing environmental & social impacts, and good corporate governance

- Innovation in the chemistry and design from the cell pack to the anodes, cathodes, and how this will impact the critical materials required
