The UK government has announced a National Battery Manufacturing Development Facility being established in Coventry and Warwickshire as a result of £80 million of public funding. The investment is part of the government’s £246 million Faraday Battery Challenge initiative.

With the goal of making the UK a world leader in EV battery technology and innovation with extensive work on early and mid-stage battery R&D activities to turn them into scalable, commercially viable business propositions, the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership, and Coventry City Council will work in collaboration.
