Group14 Technologies, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of advanced silicon battery technology, has been awarded $100 million from the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains (MESC).
This award is part of the Biden Administration's Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which is investing more than $7 billion in total to accelerate the production of advanced battery technologies.
Group14 is one of the first awardees of the initial 21 recipients to conclude its contract for the grant and is now able to begin scaling its domestic manufacturing capacity to deliver advanced silicon battery materials to secure the U.S. battery supply chain.
The company has already broken ground on its second commercial Battery Active Materials factory (BAM-2) in Moses Lake, WA, which is expected to be the world's largest factory for advanced silicon battery technology. A
Additionally, Group14 has secured additional funding from the DOE for its Battery Manufacturing and Processing (BMP) program, allowing them to expand their domestic manufacturing capacity to meet the increasing demand for advanced battery materials.
