Supply Chain for Advanced Batteries Receives Boost

Department of Energy taking action to support domestic manufacturing and distribution.

This week, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm announced that her department is taking action to support the domestic supply chain for advanced battery materials and technologies. These steps are a response to the executive order President Biden issued earlier this year which directed a 100-day review to “assesses vulnerabilities and opportunities in the current and forecasted battery supply chain landscape” and provide recommendations.

“We’re going to need a significant increase in battery production to supercharge America’s clean energy future, which means we urgently need to build up our capacity to research, develop, manufacture, and market batteries right here at home,” said Secretary Granholm. “Strengthening our domestic supply chain will accelerate our efforts to decarbonize the economy—helping to power electric vehicles and boost grid storage and resiliency. We must seize the opportunity for the U.S. to lead an emerging global industry to create good-paying jobs for American workers that will be in demand for decades to come.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration to seek God’s guidance as they implement policies.
  • For the Energy secretary as she leads her department.
  • For the new actions and procedures to benefit the American economy and workforce.
