Batteries have become an integral part of the green mission. The global trend to adopt green energy technologies to save the environment by dodging fossil fuel energy sources has pushed the demand for key battery metal to record highs. Nickel, Lithium and Cobalt are the main components of the new-age batteries capable of providing high-energy intensity.

The current growth in the demand for battery metals is highly attributed to the soaring electric vehicles’ (EV) demand. Strong support from the worldwide governments and a commitment to curb the carbon emission level has fuelled the EV revolution. New age batteries are the backbone of the revolution. The recent advancement in battery technology has supported the industry to cope with the challenges faced by earlier EVs like - lower mileage, lower power, and large charging time, etc.
