A few weeks ago we invested more in Vulcan Energy Resources (ASX:VUL) via the placement at $6.50 - as a long term hold.

VUL just raised $120M led by Goldman Sachs. Australia’s richest person Gina Rhinehart invested almost $50M.

VUL is now fully funded for the medium term and picking up the pace with a nice pile of cash - we are watching for rapid fire news flow over the next few weeks and months.

VUL’s share price has just come back to around the placement price, which often happens for a little while as the market digests the newly issued stock.

We are long term holders in VUL - here is why:

“Once in a generation” paradigm shifts are where vast generational fortunes are made.

Over recent centuries, the biggest wealth creation events on a global level have been:

  1. Water and steam power to mechanize production;
  2. Oil, gas and railroads;
  3. Internet and mobile;

And now - the coming years will be all about:

4. Green transport and industry - carbon emission free.

The world is rapidly making the switch to Electric Vehicles (EVs) before our eyes - it is reported this will be a $5 trillion undertaking (yep, that’s TRILLION with a T).

What was going to take 30 years has now been accelerated by COVID - governments around the world are locking in massive climate neutrality projects to pump money and jobs into a COVID battered economy.

The European Union is leading the charge here, with its Green Deal - a set of policy initiatives with the aim of making Europe climate neutral by 2050.

The Green Deal includes an objective to mobilise at least €1 Trillion to support sustainable investments over the next decade.

As a result of this massive shift in how we generate energy, the EU is scrambling to secure enough raw materials to make “green” batteries on home soil.

As part of the Green Deal, sweeping new EU regulations for EV batteries are rapidly being put into place:

  • CO2 footprint transparency requirements.
  • Sustainable and ethical sourcing will be required.
  • The EU will seek to achieve self-sufficiency in sustainably produced batteries and battery raw materials.

VUL is perfectly placed to capture value in this new green revolution - we have invested with a 3 to 5 year investment horizon.

Our Top 2020 Pick VUL has:

  • Biggest lithium resource in Europe - lithium being the key ingredient in electric vehicle batteries
  • This lithium resource sits in the heart of Germany - the centre of automakers and the world’s fastest growing lithium market.
  • A best in class green, zero carbon, socially responsible project.
  • Elon Musk is building a gigafactory next to Berlin and has said that lithium supply must be localised.
  • Just a few weeks ago VUL raised A$120M led by Goldman Sachs, Gina Rinehart and ESG investors.
  • Shares are now consolidating around the capital raising price.
  • The company is fully funded up to the DFS.
