Battery Manufacturing and Recycling Grants
Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains (MESC)
To support and sustain a North American battery supply chain; to support battery manufacturing and recycling by funding demonstration projects and facility construction.
Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements
Eligible uses include demonstration projects, construction of commercial-scale facilities, and retrofit or retooling of existing facilities for battery component manufacturing, advanced battery manufacturing, and recycling.
Increasing the supply of batteries could decrease the cost of battery storage, and more reliable domestic production could reduce price volatility. This could be part of a local or regional clean energy economy strategy.
