Here are some of examples:

EV/BATTERIES * Honda and LG Energy Solution – $4.4 billion for a newbattery plant with annual production capacity of 40 GWh. * Hyundai – Construction of $5.54 billion EV and batteryplant in Savannah, Georgia, could start this year instead ofJanuary 2023. * Panasonic (OTC:PCRFY) – Second new battery plant: Panasonic, an EVbattery supplier to Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), is considering Oklahoma for itssecond new $4 billion battery plant.

BATTERY STORAGE * Kontrolmatik Technologies – Expansion of grid-scalebattery factory: Virginia-based energy storage companyKontrolmatik announced on Aug. 16 that its first U.S.-basedlithium-ion battery factory, previously expected to have a 2 GWhcapacity, will now have a 3 GWh capacity. * Zinc8 – New battery manufacturing facility: Zinc8announced Aug. 12 it signed a letter of intent to make UlsterCounty, New York, the home of its first major manufacturing hub,citing incentives included in the IRA.
