The Clean Energy Ministerial, IEA and the Electric Vehicle Initiative are organising a technical workshop on batteries for electric mobility.  The goal of this workshop is to discuss some of the key developments in the battery sector that underpin the recent and projected increase in electric mobility. The event will focus on four main topics:

1.  Battery chemistries: implications for current cost/performance estimates and potential cost reductions/performance improvements

2.  Battery manufacturing: scale-up challenges and opportunities as a result of increased adoption of EVs

3.  Material demand for batteries and potential supply constraints

4.  End-of-life: second/third life opportunities and battery recycling

The format of the workshop will be a sequence of 4 roundtables, one for each of topics listed above.  Each roundtable will be opened by a 'scene setter', followed by a structured discussion involving participants from academia, industry, governments and NGOs.
