Heritage – Powering Innovation: Advanced Batteries and Critical Supply Chains

In the Made in China 2025 Plan, the Chinese Communist Party outlined its bid for centrality in key technology supply chains, including renewable energy and electric vehicles (EVs). Changing consumer preferences and government policies have increased demand for EVs, driving up demand for advanced batteries. Batteries also have a variety of defense applications that can help enable distributed operational concepts, reducing reliance on legacy energy supply chains. What does this mean for America’s ability to secure its access to these crucial products at a time of rising tensions with China? Join the Hamilton Commission on Securing America’s National Security Industrial Base for this timely discussion.
