This funding through the DOD’s Manufacturing Capability Expansion and

Investment Prioritization Directorate will be used to develop and commercialize new battery technologies and manufacturing processes, enhance the domestic availability of critical raw materials, and train high-quality workers for jobs in an expanding battery energy storage workforce.
