Lithium Race: Panasonic Builds First Dedicated EV Battery Plant In China.




  It is very interesting, now Panasonic goes where the world's largest auto-market for electric Cars will be already this year! And it is despite other Lithium Megafactories being already build over there and Panasonic itself investing in Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada, U.S. International Lithium strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium supplies Panasonic among very many other clients and Panasonic now supplies Tesla Motors with Lithium Cells.





Future Of Building Lithium Supply Chains For Robots: ILC and Ganfeng J/Vs And The Largest Auto Market In The World In China.





 As we are discussing here, Lithium Technology will power us for the next 50 years and after that Robots. If you look into the real advance in the Silicon Valley these days it is not about just Cars being fully Electric and autonomous very soon.Silicon Valley giants like Apple, Google, Tesla, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter and Uber among others are going for the real change not only in the $10 Trillion market related to the automotive sector, but they are igniting the tectonic shift in our civilisation. Robots are coming.
  As Apple was never really making just another mobile phone, but the very powerful computer in you palm - so is Silicon Valley is going now for the Robots and autonomous electric cars are just the next stepping stone. This brilliant analysis was presented at The Energy Gang podcast by Anand Shah. I concur with it looking at what I can see in the latest technology trends.
  Asia is taking the very important lead in this space as well. China is not only leapfrogging directly into the Lithium Energy Space with Electric Cars and Solar, but building the advanced materials base for this new Energy rEVolution. Panasonic, Nissan, Toyota, NEC, Sony, Samsung, Huyndai, LG Chem and others are staking its own place in electric cars now. China is the largest Lithium Market in the world already, moving to claim the largest Lithium Battery Producer title and Electric Cars in China will become the largest World's EV market early in the next year.
  Listen to that podcast, read the article about LG Chem and do your own research. Numerous companies are building Lithium Batteries facilities now in China: LG Chem, BYD, Boston Power (Ganfeng Lithium has 10% stake), Foxconn, Samsung, A123 - which will exceed even Tesla Gigafactory production capacity! 17 start ups only this year are trying to capitalise in lithium batteries market on the "War on Pollution" announced by China and state-level plan to build new strategic industry - Electric Cars.






  Ganfeng Lithium is taking one of the central roles in this unfolding tectonic shift in our geopolitical balance and change of the very foundation of the society. Energy is everything. Oil was powering us for the last 150 years. Oil means Energy even now, but not for very much longer. Now it is time for Energy rEVolution. You have links with my ideas and chronicles of this rEVolution. Lithium is the magic metal at the very place of this Next Big Thing. Ganfeng has reached this year $3.2 Billon market cap and is supplying LG Chem, 
  Our company, International Lithium, was very early into this game and was very fortunate with its Team to build, what I call: the Vertically Integrated Lithium business with Ganfeng Lithium. Now this giant from China is financing our J/V projects in Ireland and Argentina and $4 million dollars are being invested in the development of just these two project as we speak for the approved 2016 budgets.
  Now our CEO Gary Schellenberg and myself are preparing our Mavis Lake Lithium and Tantalum project for the next stage of ILC advance in lithium material market: we are closing financing to stake the grounds for "The Next North American Lithium Producer". This is our dream to be realised and build in Canada, we have the very strong foundation with our Mavis Lake very impressive lithium grade intersections, whole project potential and strategic ideas how to make it happen fast. There are always risks involved before the rewards can be materialised, please read carefully my legal disclaimer and nothing here substitute any investment advice, please always consult your qualified financial adviser.
  I am just sharing with you what is our strategic view and why I have bought additional 1 million shares in ILC at 8 cents above the market recently and Gary has joined me now buying in the market ILC shares. We have done it before with Ganfeng and we will do our best to do it again with the Strategic Investor for the security of lithium supply for the West. Stay turned for my Energy rEVolution Chronicles and you can find a lot of information on my links below. I will take the liberty to provide you with New Year 2016 Holiday Edition of our business and personal introduction.
 LG Chem article shows you as an example what is happening in our very dynamic Lithium Technology market now. Lithium Batteries are everywhere, now we have the catalyst: the most expensive and advanced technological machine in the average household - your car is going Electric with Lithium Batteries. Your remote control has two lithium batteries. Your Electric Car like Tesla has over 7,000 of them. Cheap Lithium Batteries change everything.
  All our Team at TNR Gold and International Lithium wishes you very Happy and Prosperous New 2016 Year! May the Force of Energy rEVolution be with you, join us and Dump The Pump. Read more."

Panasonic Builds First Dedicated EV Battery Plant In China.

"Japanese electronics giant Panasonic is to build a lithium battery plant in China in what will be its first factory dedicated to batteries for electric vehicles in the country.
The $410million plant, in the northeastern city of Dalian, is slated to open in 2017 and will produce 200,000 batteries a year for EV and plug-in hybrid EVs."
