Safeguarding the Energy Storage Supply Chain in Times of COVID-19
When the first wave of the Coronavirus pandemic hit China in the beginning of the year, it became clear the battery market would soon face a supply chain crunch.
As the Asian manufacturing powerhouse imposed factory closures and travel bans to curtail the spread of the virus, WoodMac estimated a potential cut in China’s cell 2020 output of 10%.
As China and the World brace for subsequent Coronavirus waves, these supply chain constraints could become a lot more common. So what strategies can be put in place by developers, system integrators and battery component manufacturers to mitigate the impact of further storage supply chain crunches?
