CNRC – Canadian raw materials supply chain for worldwide battery market

 Hosted by: National Research Council Canada 
 Date: November 25, 2015 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The demand for energy storage devices is increasing.  Li-ion batteries are already deployed in vehicle applications and are expected to dominate large scale energy storage for the electrical grid.  Vanadium redox flow batteries are at a critical stage in development and are considered one of the most promising new technologies for grid applications.  These developments raise the question of whether the supply of raw and battery-grade materials or the supply chain for battery manufacturing will be adequate to support the burgeoning sector.

This workshop brings together Canadian mining companies who can play a critical role in supplying materials the worldwide battery market.
