A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Bloomberg forecasts that almost half of all new cars will be electric by 2040. Add to that the demand for lithium-ion batteries for home energy storage and other uses. But the transition from fossil fuels comes with its own risks. In this report, RCS Global balances progress with supply chain risks of The Battery Revolution

Paul Ogwu writes that *Nigeriia's EITI process has gained substantially in transparency and availability of data and reports but needs to improve on its implementation of recommendations to become an accountability regime. 

These and more jobs, blogs, photos, videos, and discussions are on GOXI.
