#Canada has “right ingredients” to be EV battery leader
Canada has a “once-in-generation” opportunity to establish itself as a major player in the global battery sector, but it needs to act fast to seize the opportunity, a new report reflecting the views of stakeholders across the electric vehicle (EV) supply chain shows.
Canada is rich in lithium, graphite, nickel, cobalt, aluminum and manganese, key ingredients for advanced battery manufacturing and storage technology.
That could mean the country is in a good position to tap into the global market for lithium-ion batteries, which is expected to exceed $100 billion by 2030. The vast majority of this growing demand will come from electric cars, buses, and trucks.
