Episode 8: Lithium is key to an all-electric future: But what about the supply?

Energizing Tennessee, powered by TAEBC and FirstBank

Jan 31 2023 • 22 mins

We’ve all seen the headlines: Lithium is key to making electric vehicles, but do we have enough to supply rapid EV adoption? Today, we’re speaking with two representatives from Piedmont Lithium, a North Carolina-based company that recently announced a massive project breaking ground right here in Tennessee. The company anticipates the new development will serve as the largest lithium hydroxide processing facility constructed in the United States, enabling the transition to a net-zero world and the creation of a clean-energy economy.

We’ll talk with Monique Parker, Vice President of Health, Safety and Environment, and Malissa Gordon, Manager of Community and Government Relations, about why a localized lithium supply chain is critical and what Piedmont is doing to help build out the EV supply chain in Tennessee and throughout the rest of the country.
