As a company, EnergyX has a mission to power the future. Founded by serial entrepreneur, Teague Egan, and a team of the world’s leading scientists and sustainable energy veterans, EnergyX is creating revolutionary technology to support the shift to clean energy and enable lithium-powered batteries, products, and applications.
Primarily focused on lithium, the main component of rechargeable Li-ion batteries, EnergyX’s LiTAS™ exponentially decreases the price of lithium production through optimized extraction methods, while our SoLiS™ technology enables lithium metal integration into next generation cell architectures.

Lithium is sometimes referred to as “white petroleum” because it has the potential to replace fossil fuels. Batteries are the driving force in the revolution of electric vehicles, and are critical for supporting the storage of growing demand for clean energies like wind and solar. EnergyX is developing solid state electrolyte battery solutions to increase energy density in battery chemistries. Learn more about lithium
HOW IT STARTED
EnergyX was conceived when Teague Egan was on a sabbatical exploring South America. As he ventured across the Salar de Uyuni, in the mountains of Bolivia, he came to learn this area was not only the world’s largest salt flat at 4000 square miles, but also the world’s single largest lithium reserve held in the salt brines below. Part of a larger area known as the “Lithium Triangle”, up to 75% of the entire world’s lithium is captured in this small area between Chile, Argentina and Bolivia. Primarily untapped, and with the biggest opportunity Teague had ever set his eyes on, EnergyX was born.
Curiosity is at the core of all our endeavors. Forging our path through revolutionary technology research, EnergyX encourages fearless curiosity, innovation and continuous experimentation.
Fueled by passion, we promote creativity and the idea of disrupting age-old infrastructures with new research, technologies, and systems. As Thomas Edison would always say, use your head and your hands.
Everything our team does starts with one goal in mind: Sustainability. We strive to make the world a cleaner place with efficient products and protocols that minimize atmospheric impact on biodiversity, toxic emissions, and material waste.
Our EnergyX team is comprised of dedicated and skilled professionals with a passion for saving our planet and empowering others.
We have multiple offices across the western hemisphere and are rapidly expanding across the globe.
Austin is home to EnergyX’s science headquarters, and extends the state’s legacy of technological innovation.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
EnergyX’s corporate headquarters are located in San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico.
Bolivia, Chile, & Argentina
With 70% of the world’s lithium resources based in the Lithium Triangle, EnergyX has established operational facilities on the ground in Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina.
The Innovation Labs is where all the magic happens. Within these walls, EnergyX’s team of scientist are hard at work developing lithium separation, extraction, refinery, and processing technology. The labs contain state-of-the-art machines and analytic equipment.
We are researching the understanding of lithium solution and materials to catalyze design of novel surfaces, highly selective solute / fluid interactions, and membranes for energy applications. This innovative strategy bridges the chemistry, materials, and process separations communities.TOUR THE LAB
With a critical roadmap towards commercialization, EnergyX is fabricating its own LiTAS pilot containers in its Austin based facility. The company has completed all engineering and internally built the systems required for pilot scale processing.
EnergyX’s engineering and scale up team completed and shipped Pilot 001 to the field in 2021. The second and third pilot units containing upgraded lithium extraction technology suites are built and awaiting deployment in 2022. The pilot facility will also house commercial manufacturing systems for large scale production of LiTAS membranes and ancillary technology systems.TOUR THE PILOTS
ENERGYX 10 YEAR MASTER PLAN
A long term plan and vision is critical for any company. At EnergyX we have taken after Elon Musk and created a 10-Year Master Plan.
Our mission is to be the leader in the transition to sustainable energy. We first look towards natural resources, the raw materials to make energy storage systems. Second we look at making the energy storage systems themselves more efficient.
In short, the master plan is this:
1) Build lithium production technology
2) Use that money to build longer lasting battery technology
3) Use that money to open a large R&D facility focused on the renewable energy transition
4) While doing the above, start strategizing vertical integration and manufacturing optimization of batteries and battery materials.
