UK gets 'national battery facility'

A partnership between academe, the city of Coventry and other local partners was announced last week with GBP80 million ($108m) government funding. The National Battery Manufacturing Development Facility (NBMDF), was announced by Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, while attending an energy conference on the University of Warwick campus.

The new national facility will be established in the Coventry and Warwickshire area will enable UK based companies and researchers come together to build and maintain a “world leading position” in manufacturing technologies for batteries and their components in vehicles and transportation. It will provide a crucial new strategic link between the research, development and full-scale industrialisation for battery technologies across the UK.
