The New Energy New York Battery Tech Hub (NENY Tech Hub), led by the State University of New York (SUNY) Binghamton, aims to bolster battery technology development and manufacturing across the entire value chain. This Tech Hub will expand on the momentum of a growing battery manufacturing cluster in the Southern Tier of New York by engaging with the state’s first battery gigafactory, the region’s 700+ small and medium-sized manufacturers, and the nation’s first battery pilot manufacturing and development center. The NENY Battery Tech Hub seeks to address critical gaps in the domestic battery supply chain and meet the growing demand for energy storage, a crucial part of the clean energy transition.
