The Swedish Energy Agency supports the establishment of Northvolt Labs

The Swedish Energy Agency today announced it will support the establishment of Northvolt’s demonstration line, Northvolt Labs, in Västerås, Sweden, with a grant up to SEK 146 million.

Northvolt Labs, which in addition to the demonstration line also will include a research facility, will be used to qualify and industrialize products and processes together with Northvolt’s partners and customers. The launch of Northvolt Labs is a key step towards the establishment of Northvolt’s large-scale lithium-ion battery factory in Skellefteå, Sweden, which will serve as the main production site and include active material preparation, cell assembly, recycling and auxiliaries.
