Lithium Webinar


Lithium has increasingly captured attention as the world undergoes an energy transition. The role for lithium-ion batteries both in terms of energy storage and as a key element for the batteries that power electric vehicles has driven much of the interest and focus. Indeed, various projections point to soaring demand with some estimates predicting demand to triple by 2025. Lithium is particularly important as part of the energy transition debate in Latin America given the massive deposits in the region. The countries of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile make up the so-called Lithium Triangle and count 54% of global resources. Chile has long been a major producer, but more recently, according to the government of Argentina, investment in that country’s booming lithium market has increased tenfold over the last five years.
But does the hype match the potential? Is the market growing as rapidly as predicted? Moreover, what are the various technologies and how will Latin America’s lithium deposits be monetized? Beyond technology, are there environmental and community constraints in Latin America to consider as part of the region’s lithium outlook?
Join us for a webinar and discussion with Emily Hersh, Managing Partner at DCDB Group, and host of the Global Lithium Podcast, to help demystify the topic of lithium and what to expect in the coming months and years for Latin America’s Lithium Triangle.
The webinar and virtual panel will be held Wednesday, April 24 at 8:00am San Diego (12:00 pm Buenos Aires time; GMT/UTC – 8 hours). Her formal presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
