Electrification in the transportation sector and increasing demand for grid storage has created a large and rapidly growing market for batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are commonly used to power electric vehicles and leveraged by the grid to support resiliency and higher penetration of renewable generation. Still, a lack of manufacturing capacity and domestic supply chain for critical materials has slowed this market, creating a large opportunity for job growth in the energy sector. The Biden Administration started to address these concerns, ordering a Battery Supply Chain Review in February 2021. This webinar, co-hosted by NASEO’s Electricity and Transportation Committees, will feature experts on battery storage and the domestic battery supply chain, including state, industry, and federal representatives.
