"The Art Of War" In Lithium Race: China Starts Building Its Largest Electric Car Solar Charging Complex.

   


  China excels even itself with the latest deals in UK. Learn "The Art Of War" in action. Pretend to be weak when you are strong, be strong when you are weak.  Nicolo Machiavelli will be an altar boy in the cathedral of Sun Tzu. Who needs War when people are giving it all by themselves? While David Cameron is busy killing Solar and brings China to build Nuclear Reactors in the UK, Chinese are very smartly moving into the exactly opposite direction. They are buying what others are selling and selling what others are stupidly buying. If you missed it: China has installed more Solar Power generation capacity in 2014 alone than U.S. during the all its history! It is all part of the state-level plan to move into the post carbon society with another "Great Leap Forward" leapfrogging the Internal Combustion Engine Technology directly into Lithium EV space on the backs of the myopic politicians in the West. Domination in Lithium materials and lithium batteries markets is the part of this plan, China already controls 75% of Lithium Hydroxide, which goes into Tesla Batteries. Security of Lithium supply is the centrepiece of this master plan.









  "Mr. Kirill Klip, President, International Lithium Corp. comments, “The restructuring of our loan facilities with strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium provides ILC with financial relief and access to capital through the long term Exploration loan. In Argentina, all political candidates running in the upcoming elections are echoing the importance of mining and foreign investment to that country, something I view as very positive for our Mariana project. In Europe there is a growing concern that emissions standards are not being met with the clean diesel scandal paving the way for electric cars powered by lithium batteries. This gives our Avalonia project in Ireland strategic importance. Together with Ganfeng Lithium we continue to work towards supplying lithium as a raw material for clean power technologies in Europe and around the world.”

 I will add to my quote above the recent developments with Ganfeng Lithium in China:

"Ganfeng Lithium has enjoyed the exponential growth in the last years and has grown to the ranks of Top Lithium Producers. It supplies BYD, LG Chem and Panasonic, which supplies cells for Tesla Motors. It became the strategic partner of International Lithium and finances our two lithium J/Vs now in Argentina and Ireland. During the last Shareholder Meeting in China on September 21st Ganfeng has presented latest information on its incredible growth, market share and that security of Lithium Supply is its major concern. You can find more details on Ganfeng Lithium website."

  Please read carefully my legal disclaimer and never make any investment decisions without consulting with your preferred financial adviser.
  After very lengthy negotiations our Team at ILC has made another major transaction with Ganfeng Lithium - 1.2 Billion dollars market cap giant from China. Now we do not have hanging over our heads short term debt. We have established the long term credit facility with Ganfeng to finance our part of exploration costs on Mariana Lithium project with the maturity in 2024! Access to the capital in our sector will separate winners from the rest of the lithium racers. Now the project is ready for the major advance stage. We are finalising the corporate structure and budgets for these developments.
  With all Volkswagen and DieselGate news shattering Europe, it comes as no surprise that electrification of our transportation is the only commercially viable way forward - as you already know, in my personal opinion. LG Chem was very quick to announce the Lithium Battery plant to be build in Europe. I am calling on Tesla to bring its next Gigafactory to Ireland with its great corporate tax incentives, highly educated competitive work force and very competent government which is ready to propel its economy into the post carbon world. It will not hurt as well if Apple will decide at some point to build in Ireland some production facilities for its own Electric iCar. Rumours are running wild with this one, so we will see what the future brings to us here.
  It is not a secret for my followers, that Ganfeng Lithium is knocking very hard on the Europe's doors and supplies Lithium to a lot of customers already in EU. Our J/V with Ganfeng in Ireland: Avalonia Lithium project - has received the major approval from Ganfeng shareholders and we are working on the budgets for the next exploration season now. Read more."






  "Petrol and Diesel are fuels and they are consumed every time in Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) with very low efficiency and very dangerous carcinogenic air pollution as a result. In contrast, Lithium battery is the technology providing ability to store energy very efficiently, which is produced somewhere else on the industrial scale with very high efficiency and from renewable sources as the ultimate goal. On the map above you can see the future - this is how much space we need to power all the World by Solar Power with available technology today! It brings us the ability to create the Real Energy Security with distributed Solar and Wind energy systems. Tesla Energy makes it possible now. Some people just prefer you not to think about it. Read more."






  "China is rising and it has the military plan to build electric cars as strategic industry. It is great … for China, but what about us? Now David Cameron is supporting Nuclear plants to be built by China in the UK and cutting Solar subsidies. Yes, stupidity is without boarders or party limits. Mark my words: it will be another one as "Clean Diesel" which was made by Labor. But "Clean Nuclear" made by Tories can be even more damaging. Just check the latest news on cancer rates from Fukushima. They have swept it under the rug already! 
  Two Solar companies have gone bust already in the UK with thousands of workers on the streets now. Before this shameful myopic disgrace on the part of David Cameron UK Solar Power was growing fastest in Europe. I will extend my brave experiment with ultimate emissions test to Nuclear Power vs Solar as well. I will stay with Solar Panels and politicians should go into the Nuclear Reactor Room. First step to recovery is to stop BS ourselves. 



"My personal offer still stands. Ultimate emission test. Now I will extend it to all politicians and regulators as well. I will spend a night in the closed garage with Tesla Model S with "running engine." CEOs from automakers and their friends politicians are welcome to do the same with Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) car and engine running even with the best compliance with all emission standards. I hope that Elon Musk will borrow me one Tesla while I am waiting for mine."


  Do you know that Lithium Battery was developed in the West? It was commercialised by SONY in 80s and now South Korea is the leading manufacturer with Samsung and LG Chem. But China already controls 75% of Lithium Hydroxide which goes into Tesla batteries and they are moving very fast with their own Megafactories to rival Tesla with its Gigafactory to produce lithium batteries on the mass scale. 
  The pain is coming, you can't stop it. Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) will be dying with Fossil Fuels. It is just the law of nature. Electric Cars are better and they will become cheaper as well  very soon. We can make it as a pain of growth, but who will make it?  All these jobs for The Next Industrial rEVolution could be here, not just going again to China. Germany with its brilliant engineers can produce lithium batteries and electric cars and it can happen in every country. It is all here, with all numbers on the links below. Just spread the word.
  But we all need your help for this change, what have you done lately? Read more."

China Starts Building Its Largest Electric Car Solar Charging Complex.




The official Xinhua agency said (link in Chinese) Beijing has put 15 million yuan (US$2.36 million) toward building the complex, which is expected to be operational by the end of the year.
It will have 30 fast-charge points, capable of charging a car to full power within 40 minutes, and 20 slow-charge points that will charge a car in two hours.
The complex, located at Shijingshan District, is a joint venture between Shougang Corporation, one of China's largest steel companies, and Tellus Power, which manufactures electric vehicle charging stations.
However, with inconsistent standards for electric vehicles, not every make is compatible with the new stations. Reports say only cars from Chinese makers and the two domestic joint ventures with Japanese and European makers qualify.
As with the cars supported in the recent Shanghai-Beijing project, we expect these refer to cars from Chinese makers BAIC Motor and BYD; German firm Daimler and BYD's joint venture, Denza; and those from Japan's Nissan and China's Dongfeng joint venture.
The Shanghai-Beijing project was completed in January this year, which saw China line the 1,260 km (783 mile) route between Beijing and Shanghai with 50 fast-charging stations.
Support for domestic vehicles leaves companies like Tesla out of the picture.
Tesla chief Elon Musk said in April 2014 at the start of Tesla shipping its cars to China that he was bullish about the market there, and had partnered with Chinese power company Hanenergy to start building supercharger stations in Beijing and Shanghai.
But by January this year Musk admitted that sales were not as great as he had hoped. One of those problems was charging compatibility — Tesla requires car owners to install Tesla's charging units, and some properties don't allow people to install these, forcing some to cancel their Tesla orders.
German maker BMW also started building electric stations in Shanghai last year, to accommodate its electric cars in the country.
China has made large investments in solar power and electric vehicles, as it tries to combat emissions on the road and its heavy reliance on coal-based power.
In July, it started constructing its largest solar power plant in the Gobi desert across 6,301 acres, capable of supplying power to 1 million households."
