With over 300 batteries, we not only meet Turkey's battery and battery needs, but we also make batteries for aircraft, ships, unmanned aerial vehicles, and rail systems, thanks to strategic investments and national power. The newly built lithium-ion battery facility will result in considerable improvements in energy storage. The facility's construction has reached its final stage. The manufacture of machinery, equipment, and goods continues. From the beginning of next year, we will commence trial manufacturing. After that, we'll start making lithium-ion batteries. It will be the first of its kind in Europe. We are constructing the region's sole lithium-ion battery manufacturing facility. We will not only compete with the rest of the globe in terms of battery production, but we will also become a supplier to firms around the world. Not only through home and national production, but also through technology investment and engineering infrastructure, we are expanding our knowledge and abilities."

"The sustainability of renewable energy sources is impossible without storage. They were prototyped by us. We will demonstrate our goods in the context of storing energy from the sun and wind." Özsoy said.
