Presented by Ruby Nguyen, Idaho National Laboratory
Half of the 2018 global lithium (Li) supply was used in rechargeable batteries, of which 72% capacity belonged to electric vehicles (EVs). As EV growth is expected to boom around 2025, Li demand will be doubled or sextupled. While some studies reported that Li supply in the short-term would be problematic, others believed that supply would be sufficient given recent capacity expansion. This webinar presents a review of global capacity development and Li market update. A close look at US potential in supplying Li from geothermal brines will also be discussed. The talk concludes with key market signals that technology development should consider.
