Battery Manufacturing Facility

R&D Goals

R & D GoalsOpen to any US battery manufacturer, material supplier, or battery user, Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Battery Manufacturing Facility offers the ability to integrate any component into a complete battery and analyze how well it works and how it can be improved. Users can “plug-and-play” individual processes and steps, and laboratory staff can provide help and guidance every step of the way. The idea is to showcase the user’s material or process improvements and quantify the advantage they provide.

Research Goals

  • Build a domestic supply chain and create domestic jobs to compete for an international battery supply from U.S.
  • Advance manufacturing science and production yield while dramatically reducing costs of battery production to meet mass market needs.
