Maclean’s just released its Top 10 EV Entrepreneurs of 2023 list, which includes individuals that are essential to help Canada meet its ambitious electric vehicle (EV) goals. Calgary-based lithium developer E3 Lithium’s (TSXV:ETL) (OTCQX:EEMMF) President and CEO Chris Doornbos was ranked seventh on the list for digging up Alberta’s next big resource. According to the magazine, Doornbos could play a major role in Alberta’s blooming lithium market thanks to the work E3 has done within the Bashaw District in Alberta. Some of the other noteworthy Canadians on the list include Marissa West, President and managing director of General Motors’ (NYSE:GM) subsidiary General Motors Canada; Swamy Kotagiri, CEO of Magna International (TSX:MG) (NYSE:MG); Guy Belleau, CEO of Sayona Mining Limited (ASX:SYA) (OTCQB:SYAXF) for spearheading a lithium empire and John Chen, CEO of Blackberry (TSX:BB) (NYSE:BB) for rescuing the iconic Canadian phone company, which sells security software to 24 of the top 25 EV companies.
Alberta’s leading lithium developer and extraction technology pioneer E3 Lithium (TSXV:ETL) (OTCQX:EEMMF) is making considerable progress in developing its lithium resource at the Clearwater Lithium Project in Alberta, as well as implementing Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) technology in the field in 2023.
The company is led by President and CEO Chris Doornbos, who was just ranked seventh in Maclean’s Top 10 EV Entrepreneurs 2023 list, which ranks the individuals needed to meet Canada’s ambitious EV goals.
According to Macleans, Doornbos could become Alberta’s very first lithium baron thanks to the work the company has done within the Bashaw District in Alberta. The article outlined the company’s milestones along its pathway to commercialization which it is anticipating as early as 2026. The Clearwater project could produce 20,000 tonnes of lithium annually starting in 2026 which Maclean’s describes as being enough for 300,000 Teslas.
