2022-05-10 “Batteries Are An Environmental Catastrophe”

Cory Little Said, “.. batteries are an ongoing expense and an environmental catastrophe.” Batteries are heavy, and the cost is a large part of the vehicle. The battery tech is advancing, and the LFP batteries are capable of more than 3000 charge discharge cycles. 300 or more miles per charge times 3000 charges is a

2022-04-28 Ginormous 20 GW Solar + Storage Project in NT, Australia

Sun Cable plans to build 17 to 20 gigawatt plus battery storage in Australia to power Singapore through undersea cable. $30 billion (Aus). To show how Ginormous this project is, divide 20 billion watts by 1000 watts, then multiply by 2.5 (400 watts per panel). So 20 million times 2.5 is FIFTY MILLION solar panels!!

2022-04-25 Statevolt To Build Battery Plant In So Calif.

Nice, but it will take a few years. It will extract lithium from the brine of the geothermal plant at the Salton Sea. https://cleantechnica.com/2022/04/21/statevolt-plans-54-gigawatt-hour-battery-factory-in-southern-california/

2022-04-01 LFP Batteries Almost As Good As NMC

Article gives Wh/kg for new LFP and cobalt free batteries. The recent excessive high price of nickel is causing the industry to reduce or avoid it. Also eliminating cobalt. The future batteries may become dependent on phosphate, of which 70% of the world supply is in Morocco. https://cleantechnica.com/2022/03/31/lfp-battery-news-is-the-end-of-nickel-in-sight/

2022-03-26 Musk: Nickel Manganese Batteries

She said the one very important point at the end: << Estimates show that the world is going to need 300 terawatt-hours of battery cell production in order to transition fully to a sustainable future. That is an obscene figure. >> This is a obscenely huge amount of battery cells. This is why the world

Tesla is trying to meet goals for battery production. This article gets into the technical details of the wet and dry battery production, like NMP. https://cleantechnica.com/2022/03/19/can-tesla-meet-2022-goals-for-in-house-battery-production/

2022-03-07 Battery Gives 750+ Miles Very Long Range

https://www.pv-magazine.com/2022/03/02/us-ev-battery-manufacturer-demonstrates-750-mile-range-raises-65-million/ The changes in chemical engineering are not coming fast enough. The difficulties are balancing tradeoffs in multiple factors. There is the battery’s Wh per kg. Then there’s the charge/discharge cycles. There are the toxicity, safety and fire hazards of the chemicals. And then there is the ability to develop a method of mass production.
