About the Course   The battery metals industry is at the forefront of our shift from a fuel-intensive to a materials-intensive energy system. This course will help you better understand one of the key aspects of this energy transition.   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. New lithium-ion battery factories are being built and more planned to meet this demand. Battery component supply pipelines will struggle to keep up with such a sharp rise in demand.   This introductory course provides  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. You will gain insight into the complex business, political, social, and environmental factors influencing and driving the industry.  Discover these considerations through an ethical standpoint as well as a business and financial perspective.  This course consists of 12 modules of 15 - 30 minutes each with supporting resources and knowledge checks. Course duration is equivalent to approximately 4 hours.  About the Audience  This course explores concepts that will be useful for those entering the battery metals industry and is suitable for beginner to intermediate levels.     Examples of those who may be interested include: investors, geologists, chemists, engineers, government officials, regulators, data scientists, policy setters, non-governmental organizations, procurement specialists, academics, finance professionals, sustainability experts, lawyers, and administrative staff.   Recommended Background  We recommend “What is Mining” to give learners a baseline understanding of the mining industry, terminology and the value chain.  Author     Alison Saxby has 35 years’ experience of consultancy and market coverage of critical metals and minerals.

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. About the Audience This course explores concepts that will be useful for those seeking a well rounded understanding of battery metals and is suitable for beginner to intermediate levels.   Examples of those who may be interested include: investors, geologists, chemists, engineers, government officials, regulators, data scientists, policy setters, non-governmental organizations, procurement specialists, academics, finance professionals, sustainability experts, lawyers, and administrative staff.

This course is for anyone who needs to interface with the mining industry: suppliers of equipment and services, government and regulators, administrative and support staff. In short, anyone who needs answers to questions like the following. Do you know who Robert Friedland is? Or Ivan Glasenberg? Do you know what Escondida is? Or where it is? Or Oyu Tolgoi? Or Grasberg? What is NI43-101? … The Equator Principles? … Copiapo? … Bre-X? … PDAC? What percentage of GDP in Australia is accounted for by mining and mineral processing? If you complete this course, you will. You won't learn everything about the technical aspects of mining, but you will learn what is current, topical and important in today's mining scene. In short, you will get a comprehensive overview of the mining industry. And you will get links to sources of information where you can find everything else. We hope that you will find the course so useful that it becomes your gateway for information on any mining topic. The 2022 version of the course has been extensively updated and improved: charts and figures have been brought up to date and improved; many images have been replaced and some have been added; all online links have been verified and/or updated as necessary; mining people, companies and salaries have been brought up to date; and a new commodities section has been added for Lithium.
