What’s it all about?

Last time I saw Logan was in a pub around the corner from Euston station, London, just before he moved to California to take up his present role with BNEF. Logan’s knowledge and experience in the global energy storage market is second to none, and we explore his thoughts on market forces, economics, future energy storage technologies, and the Lithium and Cobalt supply chains.
