Lastly the identify of the venture got here up: “Roadrunner.” Jeff Dahn’s identify and Dalhousie College started to come back up. Additionally the analysis website was revealed- Kato Street, near the Fremont manufacturing facility. By analysis website I imply the venture was to be experimentally arrange as a manufacturing line. The precise chemical analysis was finished in Canada with Jeff Dahn. John Goodenough at Austin College was additionally talked about.
A cheerful, smiling mysterious Elon Musk informed us that the revelation of the Battery Day was going to “blow our minds”. Pleasure was constructed as much as fever pitch and regardless of “ Battery day” being postpone time and again, pleasure in regards to the roadrunner venture has solely been exacerbated. There’s now just one month to go and pleasure is at fever pitch.
With tools piled up on the roof of Kato street and tools piled up within the automobile park, the roadrunner venture have to be in “assembly line construction HELL!”. Nevertheless with every HELL venture Elon has pulled a rabbit out of the hat and he has triumphed. Maybe he’ll work his Steve Jobs type of magic once more, and Tesla followers might be proven a clear, sensible roadrunner venture whirring at excessive velocity. In a earlier video an individual requested Elon if the battery meeting at Gigafactory1 is quicker or slower than that which we see in Youtube movies. Elon replied that in actual life, the velocity of the batteries can’t be seen as they transfer at bullet velocity. With a purpose to present them transferring in a video they should be dramatically slowed down.
There’s a rather a lot to be proven on this “Battery Day.” The battery day initially was “Power train day and battery day,” however it needed to be slimmed right down to “battery day” as a result of there may be an excessive amount of element to speak about.
That is hypothesis, however that is most likely what may/most likely will occur.
4 Issues That May Occur at Tesla Battery Day
1 The shareholder assembly takes place. Aside from the Accountancy figures, Giga Shanghai, Giga Berlin and Tera Austin are defined. Different Giga or Tera initiatives far forward are defined. Report again is given in regards to the manufacture of Cybertruck and the Tesla semi, and the Tesla “Model 2” low priced automobile is revealed.
2 The take care of LG Chem and CATL is defined. The chemistry of the CATL and LG Chem batteries are defined. Now Tesla has no battery bottleneck. All battery initiatives can now go forward, the one limitation being lack of engineers and software program builders. Tesla can now construct Giga scale energy initiatives wherever on this planet. Batteries are the important thing elements for tomorrow’s electrical autos.
three The brand new good working relationship with Panasonic is unveiled. The rise in battery manufacturing to 39 Gw from 24 Gw is defined. The larger energy density of the Panasonic cell is defined. The million mile battery is defined. The Jeff Dahn analysis group at Dalhousie College is revealed. The only crystal cathode battery is revealed. The Lithium iron Phosphate [LFP] battery is defined The completely different Mega battery grid scale initiatives are defined The completely different “dinosaur” grid scale energy peaker vegetation being changed by faster, cheaper, extra environment friendly, extra worthwhile Tesla mega batteries is revealed.
four The Roadrunner venture is mentioned. A trial meeting line in Kato street close by has purchased the Roadrunner venture to life. Continuous studying, continuous effectivity, molecular degree engineering might be mentioned and explored at this facility. This facility is to be reproduced at each Tesla manufacturing facility all through the world. Tesla is not going to solely use this battery however different batteries such because the Panasonic Lithium Nickel battery, LFP battery with its longer life however much less energy density and different battery applied sciences might be additionally used. Every battery kind might be used the place its benefits are greatest suited.
The “piece de la resistance”, the climax of the assembly, the Roadrunner venture with its battery meeting line with it, is now proven to the general public. There’s a guided tour.
The Shareholder and Battery Day might be a revelation of many large breakthroughs. It’s a triumph of innovation, analysis, perseverance and financing. All brief sellers will notice that they’ve been throwing their cash at an inconceivable dream- to see Tesla shares go to zero. On this present day they may notice that to take a position by shorting Tesla stock will solely burn them and their cash. Corporations like Ark Make investments might be justified of their seemingly ridiculous forecasts.
Let me know please, what you consider the upcoming Battery Day and Tesla’s Roadrunner venture. Additionally, please see my newest story the place I’m discussing Tesla Vitality and its success intimately.
Steve Blomeield, who holds a level in telecommunications, is likely one of the a number of Tesla reporters at Torque Information. He loves learning completely different points of life on social media, however the principle focus is House X, Tesla, in addition to different electrical autos.
