“Our partnership with EVE Energy is one of several strategic measures Wärtsilä is taking to diversify and strengthen our supply chain in response to industry-wide disruptions over the last few years,” said Andrew Tang, vice-President of Energy Storage & Optimisation at Wärtsilä, in the announcement today (12 September).

In concurrent news, Oregon-headquartered system integrator Powin has said it intends to source 5GWh of US-made battery technology and components annually starting in 2025, though its announcement didn’t give much specific detail.

The company said it is collaborating with new contract manufacturers for the assembly and integration of Powin’s Stack750 Energy and Collection segments. It already signed up with US-based manufacturer Jabil for this earlier this year.

It also said it would be sourcing HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems exclusively from US-based manufacturers.

Powin also said it is “taking decisive steps to shape the future of energy storage in America by securing supply agreements with key partners that are expanding manufacturing capabilities in Tennessee, Georgia, and South Carolina.”

It didn’t reveal what company or product that part of the announcement referred to. Microvast is expanding its Tennessee gigafactory in Q4 this year, Norway-based Freyr has chosen Georgia for its first US gifactory, while Turkey-based Pomega, which interviewed earlier this year, is building a cell and ESS gigafactory in South Carolina.

Since the Inflation Reduction Act was passed a year ago, US$270 billion of US clean energy investment has been announced, much of it in upstream manufacturing, according to trade body the American Clean Power Association (ACP).
