The electric vehicle revolution - securing the european supply chain
16:20 - 16:40, GMT +00:00
• Demand for EVs in Europe is taking off - sales in Germany up from 3% of private vehicle sales in 2019 to 13% in 2020
• Government policies banning sales of new ICE vehicles by 2030/2035 will accelerate the transition
• Europe will be second largest EV market in the world, after China by 2030
• All the European car makers are developing electric models; battery and cathode manufacturers are setting up plants to meet the demands
• These batteries will all need Lithium Hydroxide (LiOH), but at the moment all of the supply comes from Asia (and 80% from China). This creates a problem:
- European demand for LiOH in 2030 will be greater than total global demand today
- LiOH does not travel or store well, so cathode and battery manufacturers need localised production
- There is uncertainty about how the trading relationship with China will evolve
• As a result the European Commission and individual European governments have identified the lack of lithium chemicals in Europe as a critical risk to the fast growing EV industry.
• This is the right time to be developing new LiOH capacity in Europe - either from carbonate or from spodumene (the hard rock containing lithium)
• Europe has the urgent need, the capability and the skills to develop a whole new industry, which will employ thousands of people - Livista Energy is at the forefront of these developments
• It needs to be done with the environmental standards, governance and transparency that the car industry expects - these will be world-leading facilities
• There is a great opportunity to use the skills of the oil and gas industry to develop this new industry, which is integral to the success of low-carbon transport in Europe
  • Rt Hon Professor Charles Hendry CBE HonFEI, Hon Professor, University of Edinburgh Business School

Decarbonisation in the next normal
11:40 - 12:00, GMT +00:00
2020 has been an extraordinary year for the global economy and energy system. On one hand, the Covid-19 crisis brought unprecedented drops in demand and prices; on the other hand, the energy transition seems to have continued and even accelerated. With growing momentum towards decarbonization, key stakeholders across the supply chain (corporates, governments, investors) are increasingly seeking to understand:
• How countries around the world emerge out of the COVID-19 crisis, and whether the global energy system is rising to the challenges that rapid decarbonization is posing?
• What a 1.5 degree pathway looks like, and what risks and opportunities it provides?
• Is it technologically feasible and what do the economics look like?
