One of the most pressing questions in the realm of global energy transition is, “How should we ensure a secure, sufficient, and sustainable lithium supply?” This discussion encompasses multifaceted aspects, including production, investment, and regulation, which require a collective effort from diverse stakeholders. Our goal is to foster a comprehensive and well-rounded conversation that considers tradeoffs from multiple perspectives by bringing together key players from various sectors to encourage an inclusive and open dialogue that delves into the complexities and challenges of lithium supply and its impact on the energy transition.
Join the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University’s School of International Public Affairs (CGEP) and Columbia Electrochemical Energy Center (CEEC) along with other influential figures across the battery supply chain, environmental groups, civil society stakeholders, and analytical experts.
This event will be hosted in person in New York City and live-streamed via Zoom. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with access details. The event will be recorded and the video recording will be added to our website following the event.
