The Lithium Revolution

Director: Andreas Pichler & Julio Weiss
52min, HD, 2012

A high-stakes power play with global repercussions.

In a time of global resource shortage and increasing energy prices, lithium is on its way to becoming ‘the’ natural resource of the 21st century. Lithium is the basis for a new kind of battery technology and thus a prerequisite for the spreading of electronic mobility. Is lithium an answer to the imminent energy crisis and key to the future?
