Legal Considerations in the Electric Vehicle Life Cycle—From Raw Materials to Infrastructure
The automotive industry is undergoing a monumental shift to the production of electric vehicles and new partnerships are forming with other sectors. Michael Smith, Sander Grieve and Duncan McPherson were panelists in a Mondaq Future Series webinar where they explored what the new EV supply chain means for automakers and suppliers, the mining industry, infrastructure and electrical grids.
They looked at the legal and regulatory considerations that GCs, their companies and investors need to know in the EV Age. In the resource industry, there is a new and urgent focus on critical minerals, where they are mined and how quickly they can be produced. Electrical grid operators and EV charging companies have time to adjust, but will have to be nimble and strike the right balance of supply and demand year-over-year.
