@ExcelsiorThe Greatest Prize In All History – (Again)
by @Gianni on February 12, 2017 - [that last passage really sums it up]
“The average #electricvehicle has 100 kilograms of #copper. When a 200 MW wind park is constructed, it requires on average 5 tonnes of copper per MW, whereas conventional power generation – #thermalcoal, #naturalgas, #nuclear – requires 1 tonne per MW. The average American household has ~400 pounds of copper – that has remained unusually static for decades. So what happens in the house where Musk did his #solar roof demonstration. The exact maths have yet to be completed, yet a pencil and paper are not essential for a basic understanding. Between the home, solar roof, #batteries and one #EV, there would easily be in excess of 1,000 pounds of copper in an energy self-sufficient dwelling. The potential for: #copper, #lithium, #cobalt, #nickel, and others, is mind boggling.”
@Xriva#Lithium#EV@EpsteinResearch We've had our LEAF ( range 120 miles ) for a year and love it! It works well and has a very low cost of ownership. Now, for the same $ we paid for our LEAF, the Chevy Bolt can be bought - and it has a range of 238 miles! On top of that, for most people for whom a 120 mile range is fine - they can now buy a Hyundai Ioniq at a much lower price than we paid for our 2016 LEAF. My point ? Whether range or price was keeping people away from EVs, the 'answers' are here now. The EV tipping point is now apon us. By 2020 we will be able to look back on 2017 and see that it was the tipping point. ( Obviously, this will impact related investments. )
@EpsteinResearch@Xriva, I'm guessing that consumers switching to EVs will be like consumers switching to smart phones, very, very few will switch back.... and as more people know people who have EVs, two car families will make the switch on 1 car and not worry about range anxiety. #lithium#EV I think EV tipping point is this year or next and it will be disruptive. EV penetration will be higher in 2025 than most think
@nicholaslepanHere is a dog from my portfolio from the last cycle, believe me when I say my portfolio is not all roses, first stock I bought solely on the recommendation of a friend, familiarity breeds trust then contempt, especially on soured stock recommendations, $EV, just retained an investor relations firm, the company has 300 million shares issued, and looks like they are going to keep issuing shares until something happens, to me this money is already gone and this is not a recommendation, a bit of public humility about the learning process of investing in juniors. http://www.stockwatch.com/News/Item.aspx?bid=Z-C:EV-2446563&symbol=EV®ion=C
@EpsteinResearch#China#lithium#cobalt#EV China's capital city is doing something huge about its perennial pollution issue.
Almost 70,000 petrol powered taxis in Beijing will gradually be replaced with electric vehicles, and any new taxis on the road must be electric, according to a report by the National Business Daily.
The project to replace all the current petrol powered cars is estimated to cost taxi operators $1.3 billion (9 billion yuan). Some 67,000 of Beijing's 71,000 taxis currently run on petrol.
A conventional car is estimated to cost around $10,000, with an electric vehicle double that amount, at $20,000.
