Elon Musk's Gigafactory is arguably the most important thing that Tesla makes. The 1.9 million-square-foot factory in Sparks, Nevada, is only 30 percent complete, but it’s already on track to make 60 percent of the world’s lithium ion batteries — and Tesla plans to build more Gigafactories around the world. The Verge took a look inside.

Thinking Tesla? Use our link: http://geni.us/TwoBitTesla Support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/twobitdavinci **NOTE** We incorrectly converted lbs to kgs in the costs. So Please go by the price per pound! Lithium = $7.50/lb, Nickel = $4.05 /lb, Manganese = $0.93 /lb, Cobalt = $36.50 / lb Today we are going to talk about “The Truth about Tesla’s Batteries.” If you’re thinking about a Tesla, you’ve undoubtedly heard about how cheap they are to fill up, how little maintenance they require, and with recent Model 3 Production ramp ups, we’re on the verge of absolute Tesla ubiquity. But one of the questions that we believe keep potential buyers up at night, surrounds their battery packs. So we’ve compiled a list of all the questions we’ve received, and we’re going to break it down, step by step in this two part video series. First we’ll look at the raw materials required to create lithium ion batteries. Second we’ll look at the battery cell manufacturing. In part 2, we’ll look at the complete battery pack manufacturing, the final Car manufacturing, and end of life recycling of lithium ion batteries. Different car makers use different cathode chemistries for lithium ion batteries, Tesla uses NCA chemistry, or Nickel, Cobalt, and Aluminium (LiNiCoAlO2). They use this particular chemistry because it offers great energy density, long cycle life, and great charge performance. This makes Tesla’s batteries the absolute top of the line in the EV world. They weigh less, last longer, and power the performance of things like Ludicrous mode. Tesla’s Batteries have gone through 3 stages: Stage 1 was from 2009-2012 found in the Roadster and Model S. Stage 2 was from 2016-2018 and powered the Model S Gen II, and the Model X. Stage 3 starts with the Model 3 in 2018. Stage 1 batteries were constructed with 18650 cells, which are 18 mm wide, and 65 mm tall. They had a NCA formulation that required 11kgs of Cobalt in the cathode, per car. They had a pure graphite anode, with no Silicon. Stage 2 batteries used the same 18650 cells, but reduced the amount of Cobalt required in the cathode from 11 to just 7kg/car. They also introduced a small amount of silicon into their anode. Stage 3 batteries are new for Tesla, and first shipped with the Model 3. Stage 3 batteries have further reduced the amount of cobalt to just around 4.5kg per vehicle. They also have a hybrid silicon/graphite anode, and while proprietary and unreported, probably higher silicon content than their stage 2 batteries. Unlike other companies that are planning to sell tens of thousands of EVs each year, Tesla is planning to sell half a million and then a million EVs each year. It's absolutely crucial to understand supply chain fragility when considering that lithium ion battery production is set to soar. Tesla opened Gigafactory 1 in Sparks Nevada, and though it will only be fully completed by 2020, its pumping out batteries, and will only increase its production rate as it nears completion. Tesla has switched from 18650 cells to 21700 cells because it’s an optimized size to maximize energy, with minimal increases in weight, and excellent cost. Voltage is largely unchanged, since its a function of battery chemistry. So the big question here is, why does Tesla use these little battery cells, when they know they’ll need thousands of them? Why not not make custom big batteries, like the ones found on a BMW i3? The i3 uses prismatic batteries, with big custom packs. The Chevy bolt and Leaf use rectangular pouch batteries, which you might think makes more sense since there’s less wasted space. The i3’s prismatic battery and the Bolts pouch battery have to be specifically made for those cars. They are built to specification, much like your smartphone. Figure out how much space you have left for a battery, then get one custom made. In contrast, the Tesla model 3 uses a new 2170 cell which will be the battery that powers all future tesla models and even their home energy storage solutions. This flexibility is why Tesla can offer a wide variety of range options. By adding more cell blocks in parallel they can increase range without changing the core voltage of the system. Tesla has a goal of producing batteries at less than $100/kWh. The Gigafactory is Tesla’s greatest asset, because by investing so heavily into a vertical integration structure, they can control costs and production levels. In contrast General Motors, completely outsources the battery development to LG Chem, who provide complete units ready to drop into their EVs. But if suddenly Honda and Toyota come with contracts to LG Chem, how would that impact GM? Vertical integration for battery manufacture is super costly, but does give Tesla a marked advantage over their competition. In fact, it might be their single biggest advantage. One question we often get is who’s actually making the battery, Panasonic or Tesla? The answer really is Panasonic.

Jonny Smith takes the 2019 64kWh KIA e-Niro for a spin in South Korea. Kia Motors previously communicated that the WLTP combined cycle range for the e-Niro was 485 kilometres (301 miles) for the long-range 64 kWh battery pack, and 312 kilometres (193 miles) for the standard (39.2 kWh) battery pack. Having now re-calculated the car according to the updated methodology, the e-Niro’s new WLTP combined cycle range is 455 kilometres (282 miles) for the long-range model, and 289 kilometres (179 miles) for the standard model. Kia are communicating with customers who may have already ordered an All-new e-Niro, to explain this discrepancy.

Roughly 30 million kids in the U.S. eat school lunch every day, and "Big Food" companies have a pretty big stake in what makes it on kids' trays. It starts with federal money, but before USDA funding makes it to cafeterias, many school districts order from food giants like Tyson and PepsiCo who grab a big slice of the school lunch pie. We hear a lot about school lunches in America and the food itself doesn't always get the best reputation. From Hollywood depictions to real life memories, the school cafeteria is a quintessential part of American culture. Who decides what food gets put on the tray? And how come one school serves this on a $1.25 budget, while another serves this? Why are teachers working at McDonald's for a night? And how does a slice of Domino's pizza meet USDA guidelines? Those are all loaded questions with complicated answers, but if you really boil it down the answer is money. Lots and lots of money. The billion lunches that get doled out in school cafeterias every year make up a multibillion dollar industry that makes sure millions of kids are fed. It starts with federal money but on its way to cafeterias, school districts have to order the meals and food giants grab a big slice of the school lunch pie. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

Ma sta volta l'impianto è un po particolare. Cosa c'è di particolare in questa installazione?? In realtà niente di particolare, ma sono davvero pochi gli impianti di questo tipo. Infatti le installazioni di batterie Tesla per le aziende sono rare. Meno raro l'abbinamento della batteria ad un impianto trifase... Ma come fa a lavorare sul trifase la batteria Tesla che nasce monofase? Grazie ai meter. Devi sapere che la batteria Tesla, così come tante altre batterie sul mercato, lavora in maniera 'indiretta'; si carica e si scarica solamente se riceve il consenso da parte dei misuratori di corrente. Concretamente i meter induttivi leggono la corrente prodotta dall'impianto ed il flusso di potenza che attraversa il generatore. Attraverso una semplice operazione matematica riesce a capire se l'impianto sta immettendo energia in rete o se, viceversa, sta acquistando energia dalla rete. La batteria si attiva quindi per ridurre al minimo l'immissione di energia, caricandosi, e per limitare al massimo l'acquisto di corrente dal gestore di rete, alimentando direttamente l'impianto domestico/aziendale. Lo stesso discorso viene fatto anche un un impianto trifase: i meter leggono i vari flussi di corrente e l'accumulo Tesla si comporta in maniera tale seguire i due pilastri appena descritti. 1- Ridurre al minimo l'immissione di energia 2- Limitare al massimo l'acquisto di corrente dal gestore di rete Hai un impianto fotovoltaico e non sai se l'installazione di una batteria può fare al caso tuo? Hai ricevuto decine di preventivi ma nessuno sembra darti informazioni precise? Chiedi il mio parere! Grazie ad una consulenza professionale scoprirai i reali vantaggi di una batteria di accumulo senza doverti affidare al "venditore" di turno. O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O Se sei arrivato fino a questo punto della descrizione, vuol dire che sei seriamente interessato ad approfondire gli argomenti legati al mondo degli impianti ad energia rinnovabili.

Last week at the LA Auto Show, we heard quite a few journalists and news outlets using the term "Tesla Killer" to describe several different cars. One of them was the Audi e-tron GT Concept, a car that Audi says will become a production grand tourer some time in 2020 for the 2021 model year. While we didn't have a chance to film with the car ourselves due to time constraints, we did get to see it up close and personal -- and pored over its spec sheet. And while we don't think it's a Tesla Killer, we do think it's something else: An ICE Killer.

Ford's best-selling and most profitable product, the F-150, is about to be disrupted. Unless Ford goes electric, it's chances of survival are slim to none. By acquiring Rivian, Ford could instantly become a leader in the electric pickup/SUV space and have a chance of competing with Tesla (who is set to launch its own electric pickup).
