Tesla strikes deal to buy lithium hydroxide mined in northern Mexico | Ars Technica

On Friday, Tesla struck a deal with mining companies Bacanora Minerals Ltd and Rare Earth Minerals Plc. to purchase lithium compounds from a proposed mining site in northern Mexico.

The mine is not functional yet—the deal requires the mining companies to raise funding to construct a mine as well as processing facilities over the next two years. But as the supply contract published by Bacanora (PDF) states, the companies project that once the mine is up and running, it will be able to supply 35,000 tons of lithium compounds (namely, lithium hydroxide and lithium carbonate) per year at first, eventually expanding to 50,000 tons per year.

Tesla has agreed to purchase a minimum amount of lithium hydroxide from Bacanora Minerals and Rare Earth Minerals for five years after the mine becomes operational, with the potential to extend the agreement. In exchange, the mining companies will sell their mined materials to Tesla at below market rate, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Tesla signs another deal with a company developing a lithium mine | Ars Technica

On Wednesday, Canadian company Pure Energy Minerals announced that it signed an agreement with Tesla Motors to develop a lithium mine in Nevada.

The mine site is just three and a half hours from Tesla’s Gigafactory, which is currently being built outside of Reno, Nevada. The first phase of the Gigafactory, which is also backed by Panasonic, should be completed next year. When the factory is completed, it could supply up to 35 gigawatt-hours of batteries, which will be used in Tesla’s electric cars and stationary storage home battery units.

Elon Musk and JB Straubel talk batteries at the new Gigafactory | Ars Technica

Although the Gigafactory—a $5 billion (£4 billion) battery factory built by Tesla and Panasonic in northern Nevada—is only 14 percent complete, by all accounts it is enormous. Speaking to a handful of press on the grounds of the new facility, which began to pump out Powerwall batteries earlier this year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Tesla CTO JB Straubel, and Panasonic Executive Vice President Yoshihiko Yamada addressed new accelerated goals for auto and storage battery production.Notably, Musk claimed that Tesla and Panasonic could potentially triple the projected battery output for the factory, delivering up to 150 gigawatt hours of storage per year by 2020. According to Fortune, Straubel told the audience that Tesla is hoping to deliver 35 gigawatt hours of auto and stationary batteries by 2018. The Tesla executives said their confidence in the increased battery production volume stems from logistical changes made to the layout of the Gigafactory.”The factory itself is a product,” Musk told USA Today. “It’s the machine that builds the machines and demands more problem solving than the product it makes.”

No, Raising The Minimum Wage Won’t Kill The Economy, In 9 Charts | Huffington Post

The impact of a minimum wage hike is one of the most hotly debated issues in economic research. But a growing body of evidence indicates that a Congressional proposal, backed by President Obama, to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour would probably help the economy, not hurt it.

Britain’s multi $billion nuclear power gamble « Antinuclear

………..ministers faced criticism as it emerged they had failed to reduce massive subsidies for French firm EDF, which is building the Hinkley plant, and its Chinese partners.Britain has agreed to guarantee EDF a price of £92.50 per megawatt hour of electricity, or £89.50 if another scheme at Sizewell, Suffolk, goes ahead. The current market price for a megawatt hour is just £38.91.Electricity bill-payers will be forced to make up the difference once the plant in Somerset comes on stream in the 2020s.The National Audit Office has warned these subsidies will add almost £30billion to electricity bills over the project’s lifetime. That is an extra £30 for the average annual bill over 35 years – totalling more than £1,000 per household.Last night Tory MP Zac Goldsmith said by the end of the project ‘this new power plant will have generated the most expensive energy in the history of energy generation’.

Conservative MPs and business analysts warn on problems with UK’s Hinkley nuclear project « Antinuclear

MPs and analysts issue fresh nuclear warnings over Hinkley Point project, Business Matters, 16 Sept 16   Fresh warnings have been triggered over the cost, security, and deliverability of Britain’s first new nuclear reactors for decades following yesterday’s green light for the £18bn build at Hinkley Point in Somerset.  Hinkley Point C will be built by France’s EDF with £6bn of Chinese investment. It is effectively subsidised by the UK taxpayer under the terms of the guaranteed “strike price” that will be paid by consumers for the electricity generated, reports City AM.This price is more than twice the current wholesale price of electricity, prompting the Energy Intensive Users Group to describe the subsidy as “astonishingly generous”.Conservative MP Zac Goldsmith said the deal would produce “the most expensive energy in the history of energy generation”.
