Nano One (NANO) has appointed the Honorable Frank R. Fannon to its strategic advisory committee.

In May 2018, Mr. Fannon was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate to serve as the inaugural Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Resources, a position he held until January 2021.

As America’s “Energy Diplomat,” he led whole-of-government initiatives in the Indo-Pacific, the Americas, Europe, the Eastern Mediterranean, and Middle East to advance free, open markets, and resilient responsible supply chains.

Mr. Fannon also established the multi-country Energy Resources Governance Initiative to share global mining best practice and improve governance.

He joins Nano One’s advisory committee along with Dr. Yuan Gao, Joe Lowry, Robert Morris, and Dr. Byron Gates.

Alex Holmes, COO of Nano One, commented on Mr. Fannon’s appointment to the advisory committee.

“Frank’s work in the US State Department elevated global awareness of the critical role that minerals play in the energy transition and his ambition to drive new, positive energy initiatives will be an asset to Nano One,” he said, adding, “I am looking forward to working with Frank and the team as we move along our path towards commercialization.”

Currently, Mr. Fannon serves as managing director of Fannon Global Advisors, a strategic advisory firm focused on geopolitics, the energy transition, and market transformation.

His experience and unique insight on the importance of responsibly sourced, secure, domestic supplies of critical energy materials will compliment Nano One’s accomplished advisory committee as they support senior management on its commercialization and scale-up activities.

“Free nations are playing catch-up to determine who will shape the clean energy economy, and according to what standards,” said Mr. Fannon. “In order to improve our environment and security, we must develop and deploy leapfrog technologies at scale.”

Nano One Materials is a clean technology company with a patented, scalable, and low carbon intensity industrial process for the low-cost production of high-performance lithium-ion battery cathode materials.

Shares in Nano One Materials Corp. (NANO) are down 2.10 per cent, trading at $3.26 per share as of 1:14 pm EST.
