About this talk

As the electrification of cars gains momentum, greater demand for nickel-based cathodes for usage in batteries will set nickel apart from other base metals. Nickel-rich cathodes give electric vehicle batteries higher energy densities and allow manufacturers to constrain their reliance on cobalt. In this session will explore + As nickel becomes less steel dependent and more battery dependent, how will it alter the metal’s behaviour? + What are the challenges to produce enough of the appropriate grades of nickel to meet the insatiable demand likely to come from the vehicle sector? During this week of webinars, we explore the commodities that will enable the decarbonisation effort and energy transition, as well help navigate clients through this emerging megatrend. + Raising the price of Carbon: the EU’s strategy to meet its climate goals + Platinum’s role in the energy transition: From abatement technology to the hydrogen economy + Copper’s role in the energy transition: the metal for electrification
