Show Notes

The future success of renewable energy and electric vehicles for both consumer markets and utility-scale markets is going to depend largely on the ability to store that energy.

However, current battery storage technologies are expensive, only suitable for short-term back-up, frequency regulation of the grid, and micro-grid applications. There is also the challenge around stability (some are prone to explode), the longevity of the units, and environmental disposal of the used products.

This webinar unpacks:

Mining – what minerals are required for energy storage, wherein Africa can they be found and what volumes are required to support this growing market
Factors influencing the supply and demand for battery storage commodities
The latest innovations in battery storage technologies
Unpacking solutions to address the challenges in developing a sustainable battery storage ‘cradle-to-grave’ market
