Electrochemical Energy Summit: Sustainable and Responsible Supply of Energy Storage Materials, Components, and Devices

The 8th Annual Electrochemical Energy Summit (E2S)
Sunday, September 30, 2018 – Cancun, Mexico

Increasing energy demands, environmental impacts, and aging infrastructure are driving forces for technological advancements to address societal needs. The demand for energy storage is increasing due to its use in electronics and transportation, and from the increased implementation of renewable energy. While the implementation of energy storage is advancing, its increased demand poses new challenges relating to the supply of energy storage materials, components, and devices.

This summit discusses the need and solutions to achieve a sustainable and responsible supply chain for energy storage. The summit consists of invited speakers, posters, and a panel discussion featuring experts along the entire processing chain of energy storage, which includes mining as well as materials, components, and device manufacturing and recycling.
