The Lithium ride was a great one. Cobalt, too. All they needed was their Elon Musk moment, which came in the form of the Nevada battery giga-factory.
The next Elon Musk moment won’t be about lithium at all—or even cobalt. It will be for an element that takes everything electric to its revolutionary finish line: Vanadium.
Vanadium is lithium on steroids—wildly bigger and the only way forward from here. We may have already reached the peak of our electric revolution through batteries with lithium.
Matt Rhoades, president and CEO of United Battery Metals, says that a Colorado vanadium explorer sitting on one of the few known sources of the next big battery metal in the entire United States.
However, China followed by Russia and South Africa, have the largest reserves of Vanadium, which has become a strategic raw material in electric energy technology.
Vanadium was the best-performing battery metal last year, beating out even lithium and cobalt.
The truth is that it’s been a long road for vanadium to not only break into the energy storage market, but to actually become the future of the energy storage market.
Vanadium is superior to lithium in every way. Not only does it have eternal life (unlike lithium), it’s not explosive, flammable or toxic.
