Building the 21st Century electric vehicle supply chain – First Hand Perspectives
Vivas’ was responsible for building Tesla’s lithium ion battery supply chain from May 2017 and oversaw the most rapid growth period in the EV battery industry’s history. He has rapidly become a pioneer in the lithium ionbattery supply chain as the auto industry enters uncharted EV waters. At Tesla, Vivas was responsible for sourcing and contracting lithium, cobalt, graphite anode and nickel sulphate, in addition to other battery components as the Tesla Gigafactory 1 in Nevada scaled to become the world’s biggest battery plant. Vivas’ lunch presentation will explore what the auto OEMs want from supply chain contracts and their battery and raw material suppliers, the hurdles to successful dealmaking, and the mismatch of cultures from mine to EV.
