Italy wants a gigafactory to produce electric car batteries


Italy submitted a plan to access about 600 million European funds in Brussels last April provided for in the Recovery Plan in order to be able to create, by 2030, a & quot; Gigafactory & quot; of 37 GWh in its own territory dedicated to the production of batteries, an infrastructure strategy for mobility; electric, and capable of employing a workforce of 500 people. The Italian government, however, would aim to increase these resources up to over one billion euros.

The intentions, as reported by Reuters, would be to establish a large public-private partnership with a stake held by the Stellantis group, which should play a leading role. However, there would also be other options under consideration and the project will have to; however obtain the authorization of the European Commission in relation to the state aid legislation.
