Please join the Edison Electric Institute and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Dr. Morgan Bazilian, Director, Payne Institute for Public Policy, on a virtual panel titled Redesigning Supply Chains: People, Politics, Materials, Markets on Thursday, April 28, 2022 from 2:20pm – 3:00pm (MT).
The pace of transitioning to a sustainable world will depend on the adequate supply, accessibility, and affordability of critical minerals as well as goods and services. The COVID-19 pandemic and its evolving variants have created waves of disruption as companies address labor and materials shortages, and manufacturing delays. Geopolitical tensions and natural disasters have also added to the stress on global supply chains. Most recently, the Russia invasion and war in Ukraine has affected the global supply of wheat, oil, natural gas, and palladium, causing other second-order effects. As an industry that provides a critical service, the electric power industry also faces challenges and feels the strain of the supply chain disruptions. Electrification and shifting to a new energy system will be mineral intensive and require a resilient supply chain. However, existing supply chains need to be redesigned. How can this be done? This panel will discuss opportunities, barriers, and risks with redesigning supply chains. Will supply chains be more global, regional, or local? How to identify supply chain risks and take steps to mitigate them? What solutions exist to integrate cross-sectoral interdependencies into supply chains redesign? How can markets and customer behavior shape supply chains? What steps are electric companies taking to lessen the impacts of future disruptions? How are government planning to mitigate future, supply chain disruptions? How to ensure transparency in supply chains practices?
