How to Electrify Everything: The Ins-and-Outs of the Battery Industry’s Changing Landscape with Dean Frankel

August 24, 2021

As the world moves towards a fully electrified, zero carbon future, all eyes are on the battery industry to supply the energy storage technologies we need. But many aspects of the industry are unclear — especially given the complex overlap of high tech R&D, investment (venture and non-venture), regulations, supply chains, and more. This complexity has given rise to the cynical but widely-known saying that there are three types of liars: “liars, damn liars, and battery suppliers.”

In order to meet our shared global goal of a decarbonized future, we’ll need to understand how the industry works, what works well, and what needs improvement. To make sense of all this, industry expert Dean Frankel will join Aionics Fortnightly Episode 17 for a Q&A on anything and everything related to the battery industry.

We hope you’ll be able to join what is sure to be an illuminating session from a well-established industry voice!
