Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / November 20, 2017 / Global Energy Metals Corp. TSXV:GEMC | FSE:5GE1 (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or "GEMC") is excited to partner with Visual Capitalist to present an uniquely informative three-part series detailing the rise of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) and the new energy space.
For hundreds of years fossil fuels have helped pave the way for global growth and today’s technology. However, fossil fuels have also led to some well documented side effects and climate change has emerged as a major threat to humans and the planet.
As explained in the infographic, every day the equivalent of 217 million barrels of oil is produced globally. The result, around 88 million tonnes of CO2 emissions. While greenhouse gases (GHG) are released by humans in many different ways, the transportation and energy industries are major culprits adding up to 40% of global GHG emissions alone. Solving the problem is what makes the prospect of building zero-emission electric vehicles (EVs) alluring.
Cobalt is an indispensable component in new energy-related technologies, and is critical to the chemistries used in lithium-ion batteries that are powering the increasingly prominent global fleet of EVs. In fact, cobalt represents roughly 40% of the total material cost for each lithium-ion battery and gives each cell the energy density required for high performance use in electric vehicles and portable devices such as smart phones, tablets and laptops. Cobalt is currently in a worldwide supply deficit due to increasing demand and constrained supply, causing its price to more than double in the last 12-months and making cobalt, 2017’s top performing base metal.
In effort to provide future supply of this much needed critical element and as part of GEMC’s strategic focus on cobalt, the Company recently announced the addition of the Mt. Isa, Australia based Millennium Cobalt project, complementing GEMC’s existing cobalt footprint in Canada and representing a transformational growth opportunity for the company and its shareholders as the first of several acquisition opportunities the company is pursuing.
