European Battery Alliance & EIT InnoEnergy launch Business Investment Platform News

The new Business Investment Platform 

The EBA reconfirms that the business size of the European battery value chain will represent more than EUR 250 billion annually, by 2025. Designed to bridge the gap between financial institutions and businesses, the BIP will shorten time to investment and substantially reduce the associated risk for both parties by facilitating and coaching businesses, thus enhancing the robustness of investment cases in all required dimensions (technology, team, supply chain, environmental sustainability, off-takers).

The BIP’s impressive network, formed via EIT InnoEnergy and the EBA’s networks, includes public and private financial institutions and more than 300 industrial innovation and academic stakeholders.

The future is electric. Batteries are quickly becoming the cornerstone of the energy transition and EUR 70 billion of front-loaded investments in batteries are required to meet peak European demand by 2023.
