See UK’s Leading Producer of Lithium-Ion Battery Technology Opens a Massive Facility

The new facility falls in line with the UK’s target of net-zero emissions by 2050.

If you did not know already, Hyperdrive Innovation just opened the UK’s largest independent battery manufacturing facility. Home to Hyperdrive Innovation, the battery maker has invested a little over £7m into the new facility since 2014.

The new facility perfectly coincides with the UK government’s target of net-zero emissions by 2050 and even aligns with Jaguar Land Rover’s new reinvestment into electric vehicle production into the United Kingdom. 


The UK’s Electric Trend
For the uninitiated, the UK government recently passed legislation that will commit the UK to net-zero carbon emissions by the year 2050. This moment was historic as it is the first G7 country to do so.

The new legislation amends the Climate Change Act of 2007 which called for 80%an emissions reduction and raises it to a full 100%. This new shift has already manifested itself via the rekindled electric investment by leading companies including Hyperdrive.
