We’re going to need a lot of batteries. 40 million new EV batteries a year to be exact.
Nothing less than gigafactories can produce the billions of watts of energy needed to power the world’s electric vehicles. It’s projected we’ll need 100 new gigafactories over the next 10 years just to keep up. This presents a unique opportunity to design and build digitalized, smart manufacturing facilities that deliver volumes and efficiencies never before seen.
We can help you push the boundaries of what’s possible. Sheer size is not the only principle. That’s why we look at:
- An information strategy, designed into the factory from the start
- Analytics that turn data into insights, predicting outcomes and driving decisions
- Quality-focused supply chain connectivity, from the material source to the showroom
- Built-in flexibility so you’re ready for future innovations, technologies and techniques
