EGEC policy paper on geothermal lithium


  • PUBLISHED: May 20, 2020

EGEC released a policy paper outlining an industrial strategy for a sustainable geothermal lithium battery value chain in Europe.

The policy architecture to deliver self sufficiency in geothermal lithium production requires:

  1. Clear target: 25% of lithium used in EU battery manufacture should come from European geothermal resources by 2030
  2. Incentives: the European industry needs incentives to invest, scale up and come ahead in the global geothermal lithium race
  3. Map of EU resources: Funding for geothermal exploration is key
  4. Less administrative burdens: The administration and licensing for geothermal lithium should be streamlined to accelerate development
