"Hundreds of visitors crowded into the InterContinental Grand Ballroom to kick-off an exciting week at Intersolar North America 2015. The opening ceremony featured a top-notch line-up of speakers, including Tesla’s co-founder and CTO JB Straubel, Fraunhofer Institute director Eicke Weber, California Solar Energy Industries Association (CALSEIA) executive director Bernadette Del Chiaro and New York State Senator Kevin S. Parker. In his greeting to attendees, Prof. Weber highlighted the tremendous success of the global solar market, which has installed 177 GW to date. Prof. Weber also noted the importance of PV and battery technology in combination to grow solar in the coming years."
Now we can watch the video presentation of JB Straubel in a context of dramatic exponential growth of Solar Energy in the U.S. Renewable energy is making all the difference. It is cheaper to drive electric cars powered by Solar!
Tesla CTO JB Straudel presents his case for the tectonic shift coming to the markets with the advance of lithium technology. Transportation and Energy industries will be disrupted very fast and Solar with Electric Cars will be spreading all over the world, providing cheeper and better options for the consumers. Now we can check again the headlines about Lithium supply …
Finally the news about the geopolitics of lithium supply and SQM are getting out. The security of Lithium supply becomes crucial for the exponential growth of EVs and Solar Energy Storage. You can find more information on my blog about the shortages coming to the very tight lithium market even before Tesla's Gigafactory is coming on-line. Ganfeng Lithium finances the development of International Lithium J/V projects in Argentina and Ireland and holds the strategic stake in our company. Read more.
International Lithium and Ganfeng: China’s Lithium Battery Market to Quadruple to $8.7 Billion in 2025.
This is where we are going: International Lithium is building the supply chain for Ganfeng Lithium and is part of this vertically integrated lithium battery business in China. Ganfeng Lithium finances J/V projects with International Lithium in Ireland and Argentina and we have the very encouraging news coming out. Western Lithium has taken out Lithium Americas with Cauchari lithium brine project and as you can see on the map below we have just a very few Salars left without ownership by major lithium player.
