Nevada is emerging as the leading lithium battery center in North America. Every stage of the energy storage supply chain, from exploration to recycling, is present and developing in our state, and it is poised to grow. The current investment in this industry has produced profoundly positive environmental, economic, and national security advantages, all of which are strengthened by uniting the industry through the Nevada Battery Coalition (NBC).
The formation of the NBC was announced at the Nevada Clean Energy and Transportation Conference in Reno, Nevada, on February 2, 2023. Following the announcement, organizing members worked to define the purpose and activities, legal structure, and budget and governance structure of the new organization. These areas are detailed within this document.
