CALGARY, Alberta (April 12, 2023) — Enverus Intelligence Research (EIR), a subsidiary of Enverus, the leading global energy data analytics and SaaS technology company, has released a report covering electrical vehicle (EV) infrastructure, battery supply chain, demand for metals and the anticipated recycling boom that should ensue.
“Battery and metal recycling investments will boom this decade to prepare for numerous annual EV battery retirements,” said Carson Kearl, associate at EIR and report author.
“Automakers embracing lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) technologies should outperform peers to the end of this decade,” Kearl added.
Key takeaways from the report:
- Accelerating EV adoption will significantly impact lithium, copper and nickel markets, but EIR expects that diversification in battery technologies, metal substitution and recycling should ensure metal availability for battery supply and EV adoption.
- LFP (lithium-iron-phosphate) chemistry emerges as a crucial adoption technology by offering safer, cheaper and longer-lasting batteries.
- U.S. battery manufacturing capacity is to expand 10X by 2030, reducing dependence on Chinese production. Local production of cathodes, anodes and auxiliary components will attract substantial near-term investments.
- The U.S. charging network will not be a barrier to adoption.
