Batteries for Vehicles and the Electric Grid: Maximizing the Return on Federal R&D Investments


Register for this Event  

Batteries are growing up — literally. Next-generation battery technologies are powering vehicles and connecting directly to the electric grid. As a result, international competition to develop and supply new battery technology has intensified in recent years. U.S. companies are fighting not just for market share, but also for technology leadership. What is the role of federal R&D investments, including the National Labs, in supporting U.S. competitiveness in next-generation battery technologies?

Join the American Energy Innovation Council on June 11 for a discussion on the linkages between federal R&D investment, next-generation battery technology development, and U.S. business competitiveness.

The American Energy Innovation Council (AEIC) is a group of current and retired CEOs of major innovation-driven companies that advocate for greater federal investment in energy technology innovation. This event is the first in a series that follows AEIC’s February report, Restoring American Energy Innovation Leadership, to elevate conversations on the role of federal energy innovation investments in economic growth and international competitiveness.
