As part the effort to achieve greater energy independence, the country has placed specific emphasis on the creation and support of more energy efficient electric and hybrid vehicles. This virtually ensures the United States will re-enter the battery manufacturing market. State-of-the-art manufacturing facilities produce on the order of 640MW of stored energy per year. Surpassed by global competitors in terms of scale and automation, the U.S. DOE and other entities are actively supporting development of sites for new battery manufacturing facilities.
