When charting a course toward a decarbonized future, it is important to understand the existing and emerging manufacturing capabilities for energy storage technologies, such as lithium-ion batteries—the predominant choice for cell phones, laptops, electric vehicles, renewable grid components, and even critical defense applications. Developing a secure supply chain—from material extraction to manufacturing battery cells and packs—is essential for a competitive edge in lithium-ion domestic and global markets.
Enter the Lithium-Ion Battery Supply Chain Database, an ongoing collaboration between NAATBatt International and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to identify every company in North America involved in building lithium-ion batteries from mining to manufacturing to recycling. First released in September 2021 and funded by NAATBatt International, this database is the first comprehensive directory of its kind. A recent update in 2022 significantly expands on the database, concluding several months of extensive work by a team of NREL researchers and support from three NAATBatt committees—Manufacturing in North America, Battery Recycling, and Battery Markets.
