The United States is one of several countries encouraging
production and sales of fully electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles
to reduce oil consumption, air pollution and greenhouse gas
emissions. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
provided federal financial support to develop a domestic
lithium-ion battery supply chain for electric vehicles. President
Obama has called for 1 million fully electric vehicles to be on
U.S. roads by 2015. In making a national commitment to building
electric vehicles and most of their components in the United
States, the federal government has invested $2.4 billion in
electric battery production facilities and nearly $80 million a
year for electric battery research and development. This book
examines the nascent battery manufacturing industry and considers
efforts to strengthen U.S. capacity to manufacture batteries and
battery components for hybrid and electric vehicles.
