Energy Department tries to boost US battery industry with another $3.5 billion in funding

The Energy Department is making a push to strengthen the U.S. battery supply chain, announcing up to $3.5 billion for companies that produce batteries and the critical minerals that go into them.
Batteries are seen as an important climate solution because they can power cars, which are a major cause of climate change when they burn gasoline. They are also a solution when they store clean electricity made from solar panels or wind turbines, allowing gas or coal power plants that cause climate change to turn off.

        The Energy Department's decision to provide an additional $3.5 billion in funding to boost the US battery industry is a significant move to accelerate the development of advanced energy storage technologies. Batteries play a critical role in enabling the widespread adoption of renewable energy sources and reducing reliance on fossil fuels. This investment signals the government's commitment to supporting domestic battery manufacturers and fostering innovation in the clean energy sector. By bolstering the US battery industry, this funding has the potential to enhance energy storage capabilities, drive down costs, and promote the transition towards a more sustainable and resilient energy infrastructure.
