DOE-Backed EV Battery Maker Opens New Plant

February 22, 2012

DOE recognized on February 14 EnerG2, which recently opened its new manufacturing facility for electric vehicle (EV) battery components. Supported in part by $21.3 million in DOE funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the Albany, Oregon, facility will produce nano-engineered carbon materials for batteries and other energy storage devices that can be used in EVs. EnerG2’s proprietary freeze-drying process to make its specialized carbon material was developed in laboratories at the University of Washington. At full capacity, the EnerG2 plant is expected to be able to produce enough advanced carbon material to support 60,000 electric drive vehicles each year.

EnerG2 is one of 30 advanced battery and electric drive manufacturing facilities supported by the Recovery Act. At full scale, these factories will be able to supply batteries and components for more than 500,000 electric drive vehicles. This support for both manufacturing and research and development is contributing to the revitalization of the U.S. auto industry and will help meet President Obama’s goal of reducing oil imports by one-third by 2025.
