Federal Government Efforts to Support Lithium Battery Supply Chain and Sustainability | Virtual broadcast of the event
Tuesday September 14 | 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. EST
Advanced lithium batteries play a vital role in 21st century technologies such as electric vehicles and stationary network storage that will be critical to securing America’s clean energy future. Demand for electric vehicles and stationary storage alone is expected to increase the lithium battery market size five to tenfold by the end of the decade. Today, the United States relies heavily on importing advanced battery components from abroad, exposing the country to supply chain vulnerabilities and the cost of these technologies. In June 2021, the Biden administration released the 100-Day High Capacity Battery Review, led by President Biden’s Executive Order on America’s Supply Chains, which assesses vulnerabilities and opportunities in the current and projected landscape of the battery supply chain and identifies policy recommendations to address them. In addition, the Department of Energy, on behalf of the Federal Consortium for Advanced Batteries (FCAB), released the “National Master Plan for Lithium Batteries 2021-2030” which codifies the findings of the chain assessment. supply of batteries and details how the federal government’s strategic and immediate investments will place the United States at the forefront of an emerging global market.

The plan sets out five essential goals and key actions to guide federal agency collaboration to ensure the country’s long-term economic competitiveness and create well-paying jobs for American workers, while supporting the administration’s decarbonization goals. Biden. In addition to the DOE, the FCAB is led by the Ministries of Defense, Commerce, and State and includes many federal government organizations. This presentation will detail the key findings of these reports and discuss current or planned federal actions to achieve key goals and recommendations needed to support and enable the establishment of a robust and resilient high capacity battery supply chain to states. -United.

LG’s vision for battery manufacturing and electrification in the United States
Wednesday September 15 | 9:00 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. EST
In this opening speech, Gray will explain how battery technological innovation has been a catalyst for alternative propulsions and mobility solutions. The baseline has been established, but the prospects are limitless. Amazing researchers and engineers have developed the technology to meet the demands of propulsion and mobility. The mobility solutions available to consumers will be mind-boggling.

The global transition to electric vehicles
Thursday September 16 | 9:00 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. EST
Climate change and increasing urbanization around the world have made the need for zero emission transport more evident than ever. In this talk, Ford’s Brett Hinds discusses how rapid advances in battery development are making the widespread adoption of electric vehicles possible – and also the need to develop products that appeal to a wider audience to accelerate the transition to zero. issue. Vehicles.

Press conferences, reserved exclusively for the press registered to attend the event, to immediately follow each keynote.

In addition to this year’s world-class lineup, the Battery Show and E / HV Technology Expo will feature an Advanced Propulsion Center and UK Pavilion, carefully designed to bring together exhibitors who have advanced new technology and are looking for organizations partners to whom to sell or develop advanced technology with. The APC exists to ensure that the UK remains competitive in the research, development and production of low emission technologies.
