A recent Deutsche Bank study revealed that electric vehicle (EV) sales are expected to grow to over 16 million vehicles by 2025, a dramatic uplift from the 5-6 million range this year. Electric vehicle sales will be the main driver behind demand growth for lithium, a key component in the lithium-ion batteries used to power EVs.

That is just one key factor that will contribute to a boom period in lithium demand, the soft metal will also become fundamental in grid energy storage, home energy storage, consumer electronics and telecommunications. The demand indicators, coupled with a widely regarded shortfall in global lithium production, will result in a demand/supply imbalance, so getting production online as soon as possible is the name of the game for new lithium projects.

This issue focuses on lithium as an energy metal, particularly highlighting one of the world’s premier zones for hard rock lithium extraction in the Quebec spodumene belt. Guy Bourassa outlines how Nemaska Lithium’s Whabouchi project has paved the way for lithium development in the area, Lepidico’s Joe Walsh explains how unique process technology can unlock potential for lithium in Quebec and you can read about Critical Elements forthcoming Rose project as well as MetalsTech’s Cancet lithium deposit.

We also have a range of expert columnists in the area looking forward to how the lithium market is going to transform and what impact that will have on the resource development side, as well as a range of features on interesting and innovative mining, metals and services companies.
