Washington, D.C.– Batteries are growing up—literally. Next-generation battery technologies are powering vehicles and connecting directly to the electric grid. As a result, international competition to develop and supply new battery technology has intensified. U.S. companies are fighting not just for market share, but also for technology leadership. What is the role of federal R&D investments, including the National Labs, in supporting U.S. competitiveness in next-generation battery technologies?
Join us tomorrow as energy storage industry experts discuss the linkages between federal R&D investment, next-generation battery technology development and U.S. business competitiveness in the first event in the American Energy Innovation Council’s “Partners in Ingenuity” series. Reps. Randy Hultgren (R-IL), Dan Lipinski (D-IL) and Paul Tonko (D-NY) will offer opening remarks.
The event is open to the public and press. Register now!
