  • Startups are making breakthroughs with iron batteries while lawmakers and the general public are beginning to become more receptive to nuclear power.
  • While lithium shortages may be happening today, private sector innovation is driving clean energy progress forward.

“Secondarily, we should not be closing doors on alternative energy storage solutions. Lithium batteries are a major part of moving sustainable energy forward, but they are not the only way to get there. Investors and policymakers should look seriously at new players and emerging technologies, and do as much as possible to foster new talent and startups in this area.”
