Lithium, a metallic component integral to the batteries found within electric vehicles and personal electronics, is set to be a major component in the global transition to a sustainable energy future.
Being the lightest metal on the periodic table, lithium's inherent properties make it an efficient, high-capacity storage medium for energy systems that provide electromobility and the intermittency of renewable energy. Rising global demand for electric vehicles and economic energy storage systems has led to projections showing an orders-of-magnitude increase in demand for lithium. In 2020 global supply was roughly 315k tons; this is expected to rise to 5.5M tons by 2040, according to the EnergyX release.

As part of this goal, the U.S intends to triple our adaptation finance by 2024.. The Biden Administration will work closely with Congress to meet these goals. U.S. agencies, working with development partners, will prioritize climate in public investments, enhance technical assistance and long-term capacity, align support with country needs and priorities, and boost investments in adaptation and resilience. For example, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will release a new Climate Change Strategy in November 2021. The U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) will update its development strategy to not only include climate for the first time, but also to make investments in climate mitigation and adaptation a top priority. The Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) will adopt a new Climate Strategy in April 2021, centered on investing in climate-smart development and sustainable infrastructure, and aims to have more than 50 pct of its program funding go to climate-related investments over the next five years. Treasury will direct U.S. executive directors in multilateral development banks (MDBs) to help ensure MDBs set and apply ambitious climate finance targets and policies, in partnership with other shareholders.
U.S. departments and agencies will enhance strategic coordination on providing and mobilizing international climate finance and technical assistance to ensure the complementarily of agency efforts, instruments, and expertise. Departments and agencies will increase collaboration and adopt best practices on incorporating climate considerations into their international work and investments, such as screening all projects for climate-related risks to ensure they are resilient.

The report recommends pairing grid-scale solar arrays with battery storage to help reduce carbon emissions and increase grid resilience. One way to catalyze this would be to set a state energy storage capacity target, as seven other states have done. There are currently about 1.5 gigawatts (GW) of energy storage capacity in the state. This represents 22 operational or announced energy storage projects, including traditional pumped hydro storage facilities (1.07 GW), lithium-ion batteries (18 megawatts; MW), lead-carbon batteries (12.5 MW), ice and chilled water thermal storage (6 MW), and other technologies providing smaller amounts.
For example, to get 10 pct of electricity from solar energy, the DEP Pennsylvania’s Solar Future Plan recommends increasing in-state solar energy from about 700 MW today to 11 GW by 2030. If 25 pct of this solar target were paired with a target of 1.5 GW of battery storage, Pennsylvania energy customers could save $273 million per year in wholesale energy costs and cut 2.5 million metric tpy of carbon emissions.
The Pennsylvania Energy Storage Assessment recommends 14 other measures to foster energy storage investment and integration, including convening a statewide storage issues forum, designating public funding to accelerate storage deployment, establishing incentive programs for storage projects, and accelerating microgrid deployment at critical facilities. As of February, there were 64 solar-plus-storage projects, totaling more than 2.3 GW, in the Pennsylvania portion of the planning queue of PJM, the wholesale electric regional transmission organization serving all or part of 14 states.

The first stage of the project, for which Act has earmarked $100 million, will begin with a "market sounding" pre-procurement process to understand how a large-scale battery can be incorporated in the territory. The storage capacity will be shared among a variously-sized assets at different locations and provide power to reduce pressure on the grid, reduce electric power prices and generate new revenue opportunities for the territory government.
The project may deliver several batteries with a variety of capacities through one or many organisations and may include a small number of large-scale batteries (50MW-plus), as well as a larger number of smaller, "precinct-scale" batteries. Batteries could be connected to the ACT's transmission or distribution network, located at government sites such as bus depots or co-located with large-scale renewable generation facilities, according to the release.

Spruce and sonnen plan to develop VPP projects using behind-the-meter solar and retrofit battery customers in markets where DER aggregation opportunities are emerging.

The nanomaterial process technology has provided a 9x improvement for the Nickel-Iron batteries used in a wide range of large-scale energy storage devices, transportation and other applications. The technology can also be used to create solid state batteries with carbon fibre and a silk interposer treated with an electrolyte. This can be used to create batteries in the structure of electric vehicles such as cars and boats. The company has already created a pilot project where a 1 meter electric boat was constructed where the hull of the boat became the battery.
The nanoparticle process generates particles that are many orders-of-magnitude more effective in increasing energy surface in existing batteries by mixing them into the slurry that is a standard part of all battery manufacturing lines. Nanom has achieved scale in its manufacturing process and can already satisfy the requirements of battery markets which is a key challenge for nanoparticle production, according to the company release.

The slowdown is intended to allow further community input and comments on the proposed 1150 MW facility that would combine wind energy, solar energy and battery energy storage in the same location near the "Tri-Cities" of Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland.
The project is expected to incorporate as many as 212 GE wind turbines at a total cost of $850 million and generate sufficient energy for approximately 140,000 homes when fully operational in 2022, as previously reported.
