The CSIS Energy Security and Climate Change Program and BloombergNEF invite you to the release of their forthcoming report on The Role of Industrial Policy and Trade in Shaping Clean Energy Supply Chains.
The report traces the history of clean energy manufacturing and trade over the last 15 years, focusing on solar photovoltaics (PV), wind, and lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles (EVs). It chronicles how governments enabled the development of these technologies and how they used trade policy to help build domestic manufacturing capacity, especially as China’s role in these industries expanded. This report is the first of two reports examining the potential impact of trade disputes, national security concerns, and industrial policies on clean energy supply chains.
This conversation will center on the report’s lessons about the interaction between industrial policy, trade barriers and the development of clean energy supply chains.
