Spanish research group CIC EnergiGUNE has developed an interactive map of battery gigafactories being developed across the world.

This is a long way from 2019 when there was a limited number of gigafactories, driven by Tesla’s plant in Nevada, US. Now a map would be out of date within a week, making the interactive map an essential tool.

CIC highlights predictions that 45 to 90 gigafactories will be needed by 2040 to meet predicted production demand for electric vehicles in the region. Northvolt has already committed contracts for €27 billion and has raised more than €17.3 billion funding for its gigafactories, and Tesla has shown its new production plant in Berlin,

Plans have already been announced in Europe to develop more than 20 battery cell factory projects in the coming years with a capacity of 600 GWh. The UK has two such plants announced, with a third heading for planning permission outside Coventry.
