Will lithium be our next energy crisis?

As the world transitions to electric vehicles, the race is on to lock down the U.S. domestic supply of this crucial mineral. But the U.S. may be in big trouble in the race to power this green initiative. Our domestic supply chain simply isn't ready.

GLOBAL ENERGY STORAGE MARKET SET TO HIT ONE TERAWATT-HOUR BY 2030

Energy storage installations around the world will reach a cumulative 358 gigawatts/1,028 gigawatt-hours by the end of 2030, more than twenty times larger than the 17 gigawatts/34 gigawatt-hours online at the end of 2020.

Electric Vehicles' Unsustainable Little Secret - Batteries Are the Weak Link in the Sustainability Chain

Typically made from raw materials including cobalt, nickel and manganese, lithium-ion batteries are extremely expensive to produce and require high levels of mining activity.

The Race to Dominate the EV Market - Does Size Really Matter?

Gigafactories have several advantages over smaller facilities. They can eliminate some of the risks of complex supply chains, they are built with sustainability in mind from day one and they spur economic growth by creating employment opportunities for thousands of people.

e-Mobility. Battery Pack Manufacturing and Beyond: How 3 Welding Technologies Stack Up

In battery pack manufacturing, the cells are often already assembled and the engineer is challenged with coming up with a design to join them in series and parallel to deliver optimum energy. A typical Li-ion cell is constructed of nickel plated cold rolled steel.

How Forgings Are Paving the Way for the Future of EVs

EVs could have disruptive implications for the future of transportation manufacturing. However, the potential for market disruption also presents a significant opportunity for U.S. manufacturing and the forgings market in particular.
