To power cars with sunlight, we need cobalt. Starting at the solar farm, cobalt helps stabilise the temperature of the batteries needed to properly store the sun’s intermittent energy and feed it into the grid when needed. And when it comes to electric vehicles, it’s thanks to cobalt that batteries can undergo thousands of charge cycles without losing performance.
The world needs materials like cobalt to move towards a sustainable future. At Glencore, we believe that sourcing these materials in a sustainable way is crucial.
