The Energy Storage Supply Chain – Delays and Cost Increases: What’s Happening in the Industry, and What to Expect Next

Thursday, July 14, 2022 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM ET

As with many other global industries, energy storage suppliers have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, economic recession, and geopolitical events. These big-picture issues can have real-world consequences for energy storage deployment projects at home.

This webinar featured speakers who addressed the impacts of these global events on their energy storage projects now in development. We also got an overview of the global energy storage industry, and a look at trends that may help us understand what to expect in the coming months and years.
