Mining and Automotive Sector Meet in Greater Sudbury for the Second Annual Battery Electric Vehicle Conference
Building on the success of last year’s inaugural event, the 2023 BEV In-Depth: Mines to Mobility conference will continue to advance the conversation toward a fully-integrated battery electric supply chain in Ontario and throughout Canada.
The conference will be held May 31 and June 1, 2023, at Cambrian College of Applied Arts and Technology, one of Canada’s top research colleges for industrial Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) research and technology.
“As a global leader in the adoption of BEV technology in mining and mine electrification, Greater Sudbury plays a vital role in the advancements of the battery electric supply chain,” said Mayor of Greater Sudbury Mayor Lefebvre. “Our city has the land, the talent and the resources, and we are actively supporting our partners in the automotive sector. We are looking forward to welcoming conference delegates from across Ontario and beyond.”
As automotive manufacturers move to fully electric vehicles by 2040, this event brings together leaders from across Canada to focus on the entire BEV supply chain and forges relationships between leaders in mining, automotive, battery technology, transportation and green energy.
This year’s event includes a diverse display of battery electric consumer, transit and recreational vehicles, as well as mining equipment that will be accessible to conference delegates and the public.
“Bringing together industry leaders for an action-focused critical conversation with a common purpose demonstrates our commitment to advancing the battery electric supply chain,” said City of Greater Sudbury Chief Administrative Officer Ed Archer. “We are proud to host this event and demonstrate our community’s innovation potential, while showcasing the incredible talent and expertise we have here in the north.”
