World : France to Host 50GWh of Battery Plants from Startup Verkor

Lithium battery cells will be rolling off a production line at a 16GWh-capacity factory in France in 2023, with manufacturing startup Verkor then planning to scale up to 50GWh “in line with market dynamics”.

Suitable land for the first Verkor factory is currently being sought, with over 200 hectares expected to be required, while the company’s partners in the project include French planning, development, investment, and construction company IDEC Groupe and technology and engineering provider Schneider Electric. Verkor’s batteries are expected to be designed to supply the electric vehicle (EV) and stationary storage sectors.
