Why Australia is in prime position for the lithium frenzy
Batteries are big business right now…
The rapid demand for battery power has never been higher at any point in history.
And this battery frenzy is about to kick up to a whole new level.
On 4 January 2018, Elon Musk flipped the switch on Tesla’s state-of-the-art, $5 billion Nevada Gigafactory.
The Gigafactory covers the same space as 107 football fields. And it’s now officially in business.
But this is just the beginning. This gigafactory is still growing, and if Tesla get their way…it will be the first of many.
Starting now, they’ll churn out millions of batteries for Tesla products.
But there’s a problem. It’s a BIG one too…it’s this ‘problem’ that clever investors should be watching carefully.
See, one crucial element of Tesla’s battery plans is lithium. Lithium is an extraordinarily rare element in the Earth’s crust. It’s also a vital component in ALL Tesla batteries.
Without lithium, Tesla’s batteries are about as useful as a V8 Commodore SS with no wheels.
But lithium production is almost non-existent inside the United States.
Which is why Tesla’s eyeing big, global lithium suppliers…
A handful of them are right here in Australia.
In a brand-new Money Morning report, Editor Ryan Clarkson-Ledward reveals three Aussie lithium stocks that could be names to watch as Musk’s plans come to fruition.
Inside Ryan’s report you’ll discover:
- Why now is the time to buy lithium stocks: Tesla’s new gigafactory will churn out millions of batteries each and every year. But to have any chance at building enough batteries to feed demand, they need Aussie lithium…and lots of it. Inside the ‘battery boom’ report, Ryan shares three Aussie rare earth stocks that could be central to Tesla’s lithium buy-up plans.
- Why Musk’s Nevada gigafactory is JUST the beginning: Sure, this gigafactory is unlike anything we’ve seen. But it’s barely the start of Tesla’s plan. Ryan talks you through the stages still to come (and why it could matter to you).
- The Aussie lithium punt that could become a frontrunner: Out of the three Aussie lithium players in Ryan’s report, this one holds the most potential in the near future. With no debt on their back, and a great position for potential growth, Ryan believes this could be a name to watch.
