Default Lithium, Cobalt and Graphite: Tesla Motors Powering a Sustainable Future

Simon Moores-led Benchmark Mineral Intelligence is one publication that's put forward some predictions. In a white paper on mineral supply chain visibility, it states that Tesla is expected to require about 25,000 tonnes per year of lithium, 112,500 tonnes per year of flake graphite, 45,000 tonnes per year of spherical graphite and 7,000 tonnes of cobalt per year if it reaches its target capacity of 35 GWh by 2020. Respectively, those amounts equate to 6 percent, 28 percent and 7 percent of global supply in 2014.
