Next-gen batteries to light up long-term lithium demand

Solid-state batteries – the next generation of batteries hotly tipped to make electric vehicles run longer on a single charge and safer to drive – will support long-term demand for lithium, but there will still be room for cobalt to grow in the battery metals mix as technical kinks in solid-state battery development are ironed out.
