Daimler to Build Giant Battery Factory in Germany
Europe is a front-runner in implementing renewable energy sources, but is lagging behind with producing essential electricity storage. This is about to change with Daimler’s planned new giant battery in Kamenz, Germany. Purpose: build batteries for 10 new Daimler EV-models, on the road by 2022. The plant will be carbon neutral, with a combined heat-and-power plant and solar power. The initiative is aimed at competing with Tesla.
