As seen from the PV industry’s experience, navigating shifting policies and tightening trade regulations is no easy business. Project delays and increased demands for transparency from both buyers and investors have become a major concern.
As the battery energy storage system (BESS) sector takes off, new levels of due diligence will need to be defined to avoid major implications for the global supply chain. And the discussion needs to take place now.
In this pv magazine Webinar, we will seek to inform buyers how to prepare for greater scrutiny of their supply chain and to pre-emptively improve accountability. The attendees will walk away with a better understanding about what steps invested parties can take to mitigate risk in the BESS products they are procuring or investing in.
Our presenters from Clean Energy Associates (CEA), Andreas Savva, applications engineer energy storage, Raiene Santana, energy and sustainability engineer, and Mike Scott, manager QA and ESG, will help us understand the complexities of the lithium-ion battery supply chain and how to identify potential ESG risks.
Responsible BESS supply chain policy fits into broader concepts of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations.
Drawing from the lessons learned with solar’s UFLPA in the US and other government legislation requiring supply chain transparency, CEA will discuss how to address potential challenges in implementing traceability efforts and ensuring a secure supply chain.
