Could Deep Sea Mining Fuel The Electric Vehicle Boom?

The world is hungry for resources to power the green transition. As we increasingly look to solar, wind, geothermal and move towards decarbonization, consumption of minerals such as cobalt, lithium and copper, which underpin them, is set to grow markedly. One study by the World Bank estimates that to meet this demand, cobalt production will […]

Supply Constraints Could Put the Brakes on Electric Vehicle Rollouts

“It will be impossible for many EV targets to be achieved” on the current path, says Wood Mackenzie research director Gavin Montgomery. Investments in mining projects to support key materials for batteries could come too late to meet rising demand, new research says, stoking fears of a battery materials crunch. Supply chain constraints could start […]

A New Path to Market for Flow Batteries: Rent an Electrolyte

The newfangled arrangement lowers the upfront price of vanadium flow batteries, potentially making them more competitive with lithium. When you’re competing with mass-produced lithium-ion batteries, every bit of cost reduction counts. The dominant energy storage technology benefits from massive economies of scale. Flow batteries, a major class of alternative storage technologies, lack that scale, and […]
