It looks like the name of the game in the UK at present is building Battery Factories, Britishvolt and Nissan / Envision.
Britishvolt announced its intention to create the nation's first electric-car battery production site in December towards the factory being operational by 2023. The factory, which will be established at a 235-acre site, is estimated to create 3,000 new jobs in the area.
It comes just days after Nissan announced its own battery gigafactory in Sunderland last week, and recent confirmation that Vauxhall's Ellesmere Port car factory is going to be converted into an electric van plant.
Once at full capacity, the £2.6billion factory will have a production capability equating to approximately enough cells for around 300,000 electric vehicle battery packs per year, intended primarily for the automotive industry.
Arriving before Nissan and Envision AESC's Sunderland battery gigafactory, Britishvolt's will be the first of its kind in the UK - with a production capacity 'more than three times that of other recently announced schemes, all of which are only at early stages of design and planning', say those behind the project.
