Schneider Electric is working on an ambitious plan to build a €1.6 billion (£1.4bn) gigafactory in France.
The project is led by the French industrial company Verkor, which has announced it will also work with EIT InnoEnergy and the property firm GROUPE IDEC, to build the facility, which is estimated to create more than 2,000 jobs.
Construction of the project begins in 2022 and with production to begin one year later, with an initial capacity of 16GWh of battery cells which will later increase to 50GWh.
