Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Dr. Nadia Schadlow and expert panelists Ben Richardson, Dr. Nina French, Jim Caley and Dr. Kyle Grew for a discussion on the opportunities and challenges facing the Department of Defense (DoD) in the development of advanced batteries.

Developments in advanced battery technologies, associated with the push toward electric vehicles, present important operational opportunities for the DoD. As adversaries make it more difficult for U.S. forces to operate across long distances, the energy provided by advanced batteries can help the Pentagon achieve its multiple missions. However, this requires a secure innovation and production base for advanced battery technology. How should the DoD proceed? Join Hudson Institute for a discussion on this important topic.
