能源部花费 $  3 billion on battery production to meet Biden's electric vehicle goal

能源部宣布 $ 3.1 周一,两党基础设施​​法提供了数十亿美元的资金,用于在美国生产更多的电池和组件. 资金, according to administration officials, will also go toward bolstering domestic supply chains, which they say will help to create jobs and lower costs for families.

The Department of Energy also announced a separate $ 60 million to support second-life applications for batteries that had once been used to power electric vehicles. The funding will also help to supportnew processes for recycling materials back into the battery supply chain.

Positioning the United States front and center in meeting the growing demand for advanced batteries is how we boost our competitiveness and electrify our transportation system,” Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said Monday. “President Biden’s historic investment in battery production and recycling will give our domestic supply chain the jolt it need to become more secure and less reliant on other nations—strengthening our clean energy economy, creating good paying jobs, and decarbonizing the transportation sector.

Administration officials expect the global lithium-ion battery market to growrapidlyover the next decade, and said the Department of Energy is working with industry to prepare the U.S. for increased market demand.

According to the Department of Energy, by the end of March, 多于 2.5 million plug-in electric vehicles had been sold in America. The department said thatresponsible and sustainable domestic sourcing of the critical materials used to make lithium-ion batteries—such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, and graphite—will help avoid or mitigate supply chain disruptions and accelerate battery production in America to meet this demand and support the adoption of electric vehicles.

Administration officials said Monday that the investments arekey componentsof the Biden administration’swhole-of-governmentsupply chain strategy tostrengthen America’s energy independence to reduce our reliance on competing nations and support the president’s goal to have electric vehicles make up half of all vehicles sales in America by 2030.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law directs more than $ 7 billion to strengthen the U.S. battery supply chain, which includes producing and recycling critical minerals without new extraction or mining and sourcing materials for domestic manufacturing.

The law also includes $ 7.5 billion for electric vehicle chargers, $ 5 billion for electric transit buses, 和 $ 5 billion for clean and electric school buses.
