Europe is building the second largest and most modern battery ecosystem in the world

Almost without exception, lithium-ion battery cells come from Asia – a major disadvantage for European manufacturers in e-mobility. This equation has burned itself into the minds of automakers and suppliers as a stereotype. But soon it no longer applies. In Europe, production capacities for battery cells amounting to 500 gigawatt hours will be created by 2030. That is half more than the 345 gigawatt hours that China, currently the world’s largest producer, will produce in 2020.
