Reliable and dynamic energy storage systems are key to making renewable sources of energy viable and to opening up new markets for lithium-based battery systems.
While the lithium market is primarily driven by demand for lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles and mobile electronics, lithium for use in larger energy storage systems is gaining traction.
Three of the top six resources which survey participants invested in over the last year are based in the energy sector. Results demonstrate an apparent growth over the last 6 months across the energy realms with: more than 50 percent of participants invested in uranium; 31 percent invested in lithium; 42 percent invested in oil & gas and 9 percent invested in vanadium.
The world’s largest lithium producer has indicated interest in the salar concessions for Salares Lithium, resulting in the conversion of over 39,000 Ha of concessions that cover the aerial extent of the brine lake from the current 'exploration' concessions to 'exploitation' concessions.
Investors are always looking for a competitive advantage. ‘Life begins with Li’. Endeavoring to identify a hidden gem in the lithium investment world for investors will involve eliminating potential bias slant while identifying the real competitive advantages.
Bolivia, Chile and Argentina contain about 80% of all the world's lithium. Other countries are eagerly cornering supplies in small pockets.
As the push towards cleaner, more renewable energy sources like solar and wind power systems intensifies, the energy storage industry is expected to grow as well. Li-ion batteries are already being looked at as a possible option for utilities energy storage.
