The power storage capability of Lithium-Ion batteries and their application in sustainable power generation systems, EV vehicles and in the reduction of our global carbon footprint drives inevitable market growth in the sector.
Hydrocarbons powered the world for over a century.
The lithium-ion battery provides a tremendous energy storage capacity relative to size/weight.
By having that energy available when we need it, we can capture energy when we don’t need it. Lithium stores energy efficiently and in a usable format, which creates new possibilities for renewable energy generation. Wind, tidal, geothermal – all are sources of energy which become much more viable now that the issue of storing that energy for as-needed use is solved. Even in cases where we still use hydrocarbons, we can use them more efficiently and generate less pollution by employing lithium-ion batteries. One major hydrocarbon-fired power plant transmitting electricity to households that charge multiple electric vehicles is much more efficient and generates less pollution than each of those vehicles running their own individual hydrocarbon-fired power plant.
The promise of electric vehicles (EV) is real, and the most visible aspect of the profound changes happening in the world today due to the energy shift led by lithium-ion battery technology.
The very nature of energy is changing. United Lithium is at the core of this change helping uncover lithium resources to meet the growing demand ahead.
Lithium-ion batteries and advanced energy storage systems represent one of many themes of the 4th Industrial Revolution: Industrial Disruption.
Roskill Information Services Jake Fraser recently stated, “lithium chemical demand from end-use sectors is still expected to increase year-on-year to around 280,000 tonnes lithium carbonate equivalent,” Fraser said.
“(That is) owing to larger battery packs being installed in electric vehicle (EV) models and the EV sector itself forecast to see 10 percent year-on-year growth in sales.”
CRU Group’s George Heppel notes the ongoing “green recovery” narrative and the introduction of very generous subsidies in Western Europe has resulted in an astonishing increase in EV sales this year which is contributing to a significant increase in demand for lithium battery chemicals.

LITHIUM'S SUPPLY PROBLEM
Although deposits of lithium lie around the world, its supply (currently) only resides within a few regions.
