The Electric Drive Vehicle Battery and Component Manufacturing Initiative supports grants for US-based manufacturers to produce batteries and electric drive components. The battery manufacturing area is focused on battery manufacturing plants, material and component supplier manufacturing plants, and recycling plants, including facilities and manufacturing equipment, for Lithium-ion and other advanced batteries for advanced vehicles such as electric drive vehicles (EDVs) and micro-hybrids.
