Li-ion batteries are used in battery-powered vehicles, but also in power tools and consumer electronics. Due to the challenges posed by climate change and the increasing penalties for CO2 emissions, battery-powered electric vehicles are regarded as one of the solutions. Modern lithium-ion batteries are currently manufactured mainly by Asian manufacturers. However, the forecast demand for Li-ion batteries in Europe cannot be met by them. This gives the new European players the opportunity to enter the market and build local value chains.
