Battery Technology: Driving the energy transition in a world of climate change

Presented by

Nitesh Shah, Director, Research, WisdomTree | James Whiteside, Head of Multi-Commodity Research, Wood Mackenzie.

About this talk

Globally, we are in the midst of an energy transition with the focus being on decarbonisation and electrification to meet lower emission goals. Road transportation and the power sector, historically two of the most polluting sectors, are the initial focus of this megatrend. One of the key enablers in energy decarbonisation is the breakthrough of battery energy storage technology. Highlights include + Battery technology in context + What is the battery value chain and it’s impact on decarbonisation + Challenges to growth in the mining of raw materials to meet the needs of this megatrend + Will the COVID-19 crisis be a set-back or a catalyst for the electrification of transport and the decarbonisation of power production? In this webinar we are joined by Wood MacKenzie, a Verisk Analytics business, that provides commercial intelligence for the world’s natural resources sector. Together we will explore this megatrend, the battery value chain and WisdomTree’s approach to creating investable opportunities in the equity market based around this theme. This webinar is CPD certified.
