On Monday, April 15, BMTC co-hosted the second Battery Supply Chain Finance Summit in New York. The event brought together the battery industry, financial sector, and federal government to discuss what is needed to sustain long-term growth in the battery supply chain. The event was held at S&P Global’s office in the Financial District.


To kick off the event, BMTC members David Klanecky and Nick Liveris of Cirba Solutions and NOVONIX, respectively, joined DOE Manufacturing & Energy Supply Chains Office (MESC) Director Giulia Siccardo for a panel discussion on the state of battery supply chain investments. The panel was moderated by Chris Rogers of S&P Global.


Following the panel, BMTC’s Ben Steinberg and Emma Bishop co-moderated a roundtable with Stephen Comello and Brennen Drysdale of the Energy Futures Initiative Foundation (EFIF), which focused on the challenges and solutions to securing financing for battery supply chain projects.
