EVE Energy North America Plans Lewis Center, Ohio, EV Battery Research-Development Center

EVE Energy North America will establish an R&D facility focused on the testing, design and storage of state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries in Lewis Center, Ohio. The $5.7 million project is expected to create 12 jobs.

The new facility will house a solar-powered liquid cooling energy storage cabinet and help develop the company's new laser welding techniques for battery assembly. The investment includes machinery and equipment, building renovation, and construction.

"We would like to thank JobsOhio for the support," said John Wu, General Manager, Eve Energy North America Corporation. "EVE will develop its R&D Center for green energy in Central Ohio and work to grow the new energy production for contribution to EV and energy storage application."

The project will be assisted by a $1 million Research and Development Center Grant from JobsOhio. The grant is designed to provide financial assistance to companies focused on creating an R&D center to identify new growth opportunities.

"By investing in Ohio, visionary companies like EVE Energy North America are able to advance research on how to best store and progress lithium-ion batteries for the future," noted J.P. Nauseef, president and CEO of JobsOhio. "Working with our regional network partners at One Columbus, we're ensuring that Ohio is ready to house this breakthrough technology, powering the future of EV through advanced energy storage."

Founded in 2014, EVE Energy North America licenses and distributes EVE Co., Ltd.'s battery products to various industries and customers across the U.S. The company’s proprietary energy storage techniques can support the full life cycle of these batteries, which in some cases are 10-20 years.
