Concept Proposal Narrative (applicant submitted) (PDF)

Project Description:
New Energy New York, located in Upstate New York and led by the Research Foundation for the State University of New York, seeks to address underdevelopment and a declining manufacturing sector by building a lithium-based battery development and manufacturing hub around New York's first Li-ion gigafactory that is set to open in 2022. The initiative will aim to meet the demand for domestic battery products and help create a competitive edge for U.S. manufacturers over Asian manufacturers, while ensuring equity and environmental justice. If provided an implementation grant, the coalition proposes to establish a battery manufacturing center in New York's Southern Tier, enhance workforce and supply chain development, establish a climate justice initiative, and develop a storage accelerator.
