USEA Briefing on U.S. and North American Lithium

 We are pleased to provide speakers to discuss new technologies and production of lithium essential for the many new energy applications (batteries for cars, renewable energy used by electric utilities and industrial applications). Due to the U.S. currently produces approximately 1% of the world’s lithium with expected demand to reach 3.8 million tons by 2035, speakers will address projections in the need for lithium along with examples of new technologies using lower water impact and lower CO2 footprint for electric utilities and industrial users.
