BASQUEVOLT, the Basque initiative for the production of solid-state batteries, is launched with the aim of producing 10GWh by 2027

BASQUEVOLT, the Basque solid-state battery initiative, will begin production of battery cells in 2027 with the aim of reaching a capacity of 10GWh. This is one of the main objectives set out in the BASQUEVOLT’s articles of association, in which the Basque Government, Iberdrola, CIE Automotive, Enagás, EIT InnoEnergy, and CIC energiGUNE all feature as founding shareholders. After two years of intense and highly confidential work, BASQUEVOLT now represents a reality that will make the Basque Country a European benchmark in developing solid-state batteries. The experience of the companies that form the initial group of investors ensures that BASQUEVOLT is in a highly competitive position in the battery race, where there are important opportunities for collaboration and which is key to making progress in the energy transition.
