The state will release 700 million euros over the next five years to support the development of the new generation of electric batteries, announced the Elysee Wednesday, February 13. This initiative is part of the Franco-German project to set up battery production in Europe, while the sector is currently dominated by Asian players. Germany recently announced that it will allocate one billion euros by 2022.

At the end of December, Paris and Berlin signed an agreement "Strategic" in cooperation with the European Commission, starting to realize a long-standing project in the making that has been dubbed "Airbus Batteries". The measures announced by the Elysée should be detailed by Emmanuel Macron in the evening on the occasion of the centennial Gala of the International Organization of Automobile Manufacturers (OICA).
