Holland’s growing advanced battery industry could spark 10,000 new jobs and $2 billion of investment in the next 10 years.
Both Johnson Controls-Saft and LG Chem are in the process of building large-scale advanced battery plants in the Holland area.
The new plants will cost a combined $750 million investment and cover 800,000 square feet. This summer, Holland was placed in the national spotlight when President Obama spoke at the LG Chem plant’s grand opening.
The plan unveiled today to leverage these investments is called “Advanced Energy Storage Capital.” Along with Lakeshore Advantage, the task force for the plan includes government officials, business leaders and company reps from both LG Chem and Johnson Controls.
If the plan succeeds, Holland could end up as the leading battery supplier on the continent.
