Workshop — Paris, France

Workshop on Batteries

Background information

The IEA will convene leaders from government, industry, the financial sector, international organisations and academia for a workshop to inform the IEA’s Battery Special Report, to be published in the first half of 2024.

The popularity of battery applications is surging – led by the uptake of electromobility, followed by storage applications in the power sector, which are critical to integrate rising contributions from solar PV and wind.

While the world continues to scale up the deployment of batteries, there is already a wealth of technical and market experience to guide decision makers. Sharing key challenges and cutting-edge solutions can help identify priorities and best practices.

On 27 February, the IEA will bring together experts from across the world to provide their perspectives and insights on what is needed today to unlock the potential of batteries and support clean energy transitions tomorrow. The workshop will include participants from across the battery ecosystem and cover a range of topics, including mechanisms for effective battery deployment and strategies for supporting battery supply chains. The findings from the workshop will serve as an essential input for the IEA’s upcoming Battery Special Report.
