Breaking Down the Lithium-Ion Cell Manufacturing Supply Chain in the U.S. to Identify Key Barriers to Growth
Repository Usage Stats
While the U.S. government has invested millions in research efforts surrounding energy storage and lithium-ion technology over the past four decades, much of the manufacturing capacity has gone to other countries. This trend is expected to continue with the gap for lithium-ion cell manufacturing between the U.S. and others widening. Potential barriers to this domestic growth were identified and investigated. Findings are presented in an effort to improve visibility of hurdles and generate discussion around possible solutions. Energy storage is the key enabling technology for renewable energy and an electrified transportation market. Manufacturing is critical to reap the benefits of innovation investment and to drive economic independence.
