REINVENTING THE LITHIUM & BATTERY ELECTRIC VEHICLE SUPPLY CHAIN

OEM-Led Supply Chain Initiative: Devise Strategies To Increase Availability Of Appropriate-Grade Lithium & Key Raw Materials For Battery Technology

North American automotive OEMs now face a significant challenge, frequently cited as the most urgent today. Addressing how lithium and critical battery raw materials supply will meet demand as firms race to ramp up B.E.V. manufacturing.

American Business Conferences built strong connections with key engineers from major OEMs when we started a pioneering series of battery-electric vehicle technology conferences back in 2010. In May of 2022, our Battery Electric Vehicle Architectures advisory board recommended that we convene a North American conference to explore ideas for reinventing the lithium and rare metals supply chain and encouraging OEM collaboration with mining, extraction, investment, and battery technology/chemical firms. OEMs, the end-users of lithium and rare metals, will map out and define their requirements at this conference in collaboration with the battery material supply chain. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the inaugural, OEM-led, Global Lithium & EV Battery Raw Material Supply Chain, North America 2022.


“Identifying New Solutions” - 10 Reasons To Attend This Conference

  • A Conference Designed To Help The Industry Drive Real Urgency. With rising political risks, interruptions in supply chains, and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals on the horizon, the problem of constructing a secure supply of lithium and raw materials has become a pressing one.
  • Meet, Hear From, And Network With The Ultimate End Users Of Lithium And Battery Electric Raw Materials to establish new connections that might lead to future deals. 
  • Communicate Directly With OEMs Regarding Specifications And How To Reduce The Cost Curve. There is now a shift in how lithium and battery rare metals are secured by OEMs. It used to be primarily about sourcing, but now it's more about investing in the correct supply chain partnerships to identify chemistries that fit the complex performance requirements of individual cars. And how to accomplish it at the lowest possible cost. The chemistry of a city vehicle battery differs greatly from that of a long-distance luxury SUV battery. Requirements for range extension, thermal optimization and energy density now need to be matched precisely to each market segment. Get to know a wide range of OEMs at the top of the lithium and raw materials value chain to determine how to tailor your product offering.     
  • Identify Funding Sources And Comprehensive Supply Chain Solutions Engage the whole lithium, nickel, cobalt, and other metals supply chain, as well as investors and their financial backers.
  • Gain Clarity on How to Simplify and Address ESG Concerns, which have made the local supply chain unnecessarily complex up to this point
  • For OEMs, Meet with a range of companies to find the right raw materials and partners and take advantage of hearing other perspectives.
  • Develop Strategies To Address The Principal Supply And Demand Imbalances.
  • Understand Who Has Funding And Investment In Critical Areas, and meet these individuals in person.
  • Learn How To Reduce Supply & Logistics Risks
  • Detroit Is The Automotive Hub Of North America   We have decided to host in Detroit not only because of its prominence as a centre for the automotive industry but also because of its proximity to the lithium innovation taking place in Canada, particularly in the province of Ontario
