LWP Technologies Targets $1 billion Market Value

John Robertson


LWP Technologies is surely for the investor who wants bold bets, if the company chairman’s spin on its investment proposition is any guide. No cars with internal combustion engines will be produced by 2025, he says. Moreover, batteries containing lithium will be history having been replaced by his aluminium-graphene alternatives. When produced - no working prototypes being available today - they will be lighter, faster to charge, non-flammable and cheaper. It would be unwise to pooh-pooh technology leaps when so many are striving for the next advance. Lithium-ion will definitely not be the stopping point. In reality, a range of battery types will most likely be in use in 2025 as technologists continually improve storage capacity and recharge times. The challenge for technology owners, such as LWP, will be similar to that faced by drug manufacturers, namely, how to recoup pre-revenue spending within a limited window of opportunity. Ultimately, the drug model involves government and insurers underwriting much of the expense. The car industry is less blessed. It has historically redesigned products around conservative technology choices to avoid frequent retooling.
