About the Course
The shift to fully electric vehicles using lithium-ion battery technology is well underway and the rate of production of electric vehicles is set to accelerate. Government incentives and policy mandates will boost sales of passenger plug-in electric vehicles by a 28.1% CAGR (compound annual growth rate) from 2021 through 2026. New lithium-ion battery factories are being built and more planned to meet this demand.
To produce these batteries you need raw materials, particularly the battery metals including lithium, cobalt and nickel. Battery component supply pipelines will struggle to keep up with such a sharp rise in demand.
This introductory course provides the learner an overview of the Battery Metals industry. The content includes a brief history of battery technology, the factors that are driving and influencing the market, the supply chain and future predictions.
Learners explore battery metals with a holistic approach to gain insight into the complex relationships that develop between the influencing factors that lead to criticality. Discover these considerations through an ethical standpoint as well as a business and financial perspective.
