By Chris Crowell May 16, 2022 View Profile

American Battery Factory Inc. (ABF) is alleged to be creating a U.S.-based community of Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) cell giga-factories, and this week its first offtake settlement was introduced with Lion Energy. ABF will ship 18 GWh of LFP battery cells — high-capacity prismatic cells providing 50 and 300 Ah outputs designed for a spread of options, together with transportable solar mills together with residential, industrial and utility grid-level lithium battery-based energy storage programs.

ABF will manufacture cells for Lion Energy and different pack integrators. Lion Energy will initially obtain 1.2 GWh of cells yearly, rising to six GWh over a five-year interval.

“Battery pack integrators like Lion Energy will be the core ABF customer category we are designed to serve,” stated Paul Charles, CEO and President of ABF. “Pack integrators, energy solution providers and a host of other potential battery customers are in need of and searching for U.S.-based lithium battery manufacturers to help them diversify their supply chain as well as to unlock market opportunities that specify the need for onshore battery technology and applications.” 

As ABF develops its manufacturing unit community, together with erecting new factories close to or on-site at pack integrators, its cell manufacturing services shall be sized in 3 GWh pods or modules with the power to scale manufacturing.

“We can’t move to an entirely green energy economy as a country and society without high-quality lithium batteries,” stated Frank Davis, CEO of Lion Energy. “Adding a scalable, onshore U.S. supplier for batteries is the missing link for energy independence; ABF and Lion Energy are dedicated to creating the pathway to 100% renewable energy.”

Have you checked out our YouTube web page?

We have a ton video interviews and extra content material on our YouTube web page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! — a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to debate larger degree trade matters in addition to finest practices / traits for operating a solar enterprise immediately.

Our longer operating facet mission is The Pitch — through which we have now awkward discussions with solar producers and suppliers about their new know-how and concepts in order that you do not have to. We’ve discusses every thing from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage worth stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We additionally publish our Project of the Year bulletins there! Interviews with this yr’s winners shall be up beginning the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe immediately to remain on high of all this additional stuff.
