DOE Announces Investment in EV Battery Supply Chain

12 projects were selected to troubleshoot common EV battery issues.

The Department of Energy announced that $42 million will be allocated to the development of the domestic electric vehicle (EV) battery supply chain. A dozen projects have been selected to receive the funding, each focused on troubleshooting common issues that EV batteries and EV battery production have experienced. Addressing EV batteries’ capabilities to withstand various temperatures, charge more quickly, and become more easily scalable in manufacturing are the main concerns of these 12 projects.

“Electric vehicle sales in America have tripled since the start of this Administration and by addressing battery efficiency, resiliency, and affordability, the projects announced today will make EVs attractive to even more drivers,” said Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm. “This is a win-win for our efforts to fight climate change and power America’s clean transportation future with technologies produced by researchers and scientists right here at home.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Granholm as she oversees the investment into clean energy.
  • For U.S. energy officials as they support the development of solutions to EV battery issues.
  • For the recipients of the funding to utilize it prudently and efficiently.
