Also on the rise: What PV installers need to know about fire safety. Experts discuss pricing, supply and demand in PV value chain. How the battery supply chain can bolster EV supply chain. Community solar launched by Lafayette Square and Invenergy. 8minute energy funding boost will grow its already large portfolio. Burns & McDonnell complete three lithium-ion battery energy storage systems in west Texas. And more.
The expected growth in EV sales during this decade will be dependent on an increase in the production of higher performance and lower cost EV batteries. The EV supply chain requires huge increases in raw materials production and processing to feed into the huge increase in EV battery factories required to meet EV market demand.
The company’s first battery system factory on the East Coast is expected to produce multiple gigawatt hours of annual battery capacity and create more than 200 new jobs.
The facility will be expanded to process 35,000 tons of “black mass” annually, enough material for 225,000 electric vehicles.
Also on the rise: Clean energy bonds issued in California, EV charging stations with integrated advertising space, DART mission uses solar power to redirect Earthbound asteroids, and the Bezos Earth Fund supports tribal-led program.
The battery features a modular design with pre-integrated segments that contain batteries, thermal management, and safety systems.
The facility will include a battery recycling building, an office building with laboratories, and a finished goods warehouse.
A report by Lux Research forecasts growing demand for lithium-ion battery recycling capacity, along with a need for innovation to meet that demand.
