Infinite Energy

The ONE company set to skyrocket from the biggest energy disruption of the century...

Posted August 9, 2021

Not long ago, I found myself floating on the Patuxent River in a 42-foot sailboat. My days were filled with bright mornings as I wobbled to work on my sea legs and peaceful nights as I read by the dim lights, slowly rocked to sleep by the changing tides.

If I needed to travel anywhere by sea, I used the wind. If I needed to power the lights, central air, or various pumps, I used the electricity stored in the solar-powered batteries.

I saved hundreds each month. Just look at what the average American pays for utilities these days...

You could say I was living “off-grid,” but I thought it was just a natural way of life. It made sense to me and still does. I was completely self-sustainable and wasn’t beholden to the greedy utility companies. By using renewable energy, I felt a sense of freedom, something that many have never felt.

Ah, sometimes I wish I still lived on that old boat. But you know what they say... The two happiest days of a boat owner’s life are the day they buy the boat and the day they sell it.

Now, it’s easy to power some small LEDs on a sailboat with solar, but powering a household or town with renewables isn’t sustainable, right?

Well, a recent report from Rewiring America found that U.S. households could save $321 billion by switching to clean energy. That’s roughly $2,500 a year, provided the government offers tax incentives and rebates for installation costs... Also consider the cost savings of creating large energy-efficient facilities, including universities, government and corporate offices, restaurants, and entire cities.

So with the aggressive push by the U.S. and the world toward mass adoption of renewables, there’s a huge disruption taking place in the energy, transportation, housing, and agricultural sectors.

And as we all know, where there’s disruption, there’s money to be made... 

But there’s one problem...

In order for renewables to compete with fossil fuels, we need a better way to store energy.

The Death of Lithium-Ion

The inconsistency of wind and solar power limits our ability to optimize electricity production and storage. When the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow, you can’t capture energy. So the energy needs to be stored for later use.

The current standard for renewable energy storage is the lithium-ion battery because it’s relatively cheap to produce, but this is now changing. And we all know from our cellphones that the batteries don’t last very long. This is because lithium batteries gradually lose their ability to retain a charge and stop working altogether after a few hundred cycles. These solid-state batteries also pose a fire risk. Teslas and other electric vehicles using lithium batteries sometimes spontaneously combust...

Lithium batteries also decay when not in use. And the journal Progress in Natural Science: Materials International found that varying temperature conditions produce various adverse effects on the stability of lithium-based batteries. The list goes on...

So what’s the solution?

Well, the most promising alternative is the vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB), something we’re very excited about here at the Outsider Club.

Because of their large-scale infrastructure, VRFBs are used primarily in energy storage applications alongside large wind and solar farms.

VRFBs contain a chemical solution derived from the element vanadium that's stored in holding tanks in four oxidative states. The cool thing is that the chemical solution changes colors when flowing through the tanks...

Just like lithium batteries, VRFBs are rechargeable. However, they don't lose storage capacity or degrade over time. Their ability to store energy is theoretically limitless.

VRFBs pose no significant safety or environmental threats (they can't catch fire), produce zero emissions, and can provide continuous power for more than 24 hours.

See why the energy sector is so excited about this?

Vanadium is also 10,000 times more available than lithium, creating a boon for vanadium miners.

In a recent interview, Fortune Mojapelo, CEO of Bushveld Minerals (LSE: BMN) — one of the largest vanadium producers in the world — said that "For miners, access to capital is being tied to visibly demonstrating your ability to follow ESG (environmental, social, and governance) principles. It's not just about how mining companies manage their ability to lower their carbon footprint, it's also about what happens to the metals when they are released. How do these metals contribute to a greener future?"

This technology is going to attract more than $660 billion in investment capital in the next 20 years, so investors still have plenty of time to get in.

The Only Vanadium Investment You Need

An investment in the vanadium space gives you access to three sectors: mining, commodities, and renewable energy.

Vanadium mining isn't slowing down anytime soon, as steel manufacturers continue demanding it. Get this... Adding just 0.1% of vanadium to steel doubles its strength.

And now that energy storage is the focal point of the future smart grid, vanadium-based batteries are the preferred solution for at least the next 20 years. But don't just take my word for it...

Our precious metals and mining expert, Luke Burgess, has been covering vanadium for some time in his Junior Mining Trader investment research service.

Luke's found the only company that mines the vanadium, processes it into commercial products, and is a world leader in the development of VRFB systems. If you could invest in only one company to play the vanadium boom, this is it.

If you want exposure to the entire vanadium industry, from mine to battery, you'll want to see what Luke has to say.
