    US green energy storage hits headwinds

    Shane Lasley, Metal Tech News|Updated Jan 10, 2024

    Supply constraints slow installations; WoodMac expects li-ion batteries to dominate energy storage in US over next five years. The transition to clean electricity generated from intermittent sources such as solar and wind is energizing the energy storage sector in the United States. Supply chain constraints, however, are acting as an insulator to growth of battery installations that ensure the balance between energy supply and demand. According to the fourth quarter 2022 U.S....

    U.S. Vanadium calls for government help

    Shane Lasley, Metal Tech News|Updated Jul 10, 2022

    U.S. Vanadium Holding Company LLC, an Arkansas-based producer of high-purity vanadium pentoxide, is urging the United States government to take steps to bolster domestic production of vanadium. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, roughly 94% of the titanium used in the U.S. last year went into stronger, lighter, and more durable steels and other alloys. Vanadium-alloyed steels are used in virtually every high-strength structural steel application in military equipment,...
