What is AES?
Advanced Energy Storage is a green technology that is part of a national initiative to reduce reliance on imported fuels. In Michigan’s SmartCoast, we are making lithium-ion batteries to power a new generation of electric vehicles. We also have in place the anchor companies and supply chain to support this industry.
With a skilled labor force, this industry will thrive. We offer training in west Michigan to prepare our workforce for good jobs in this emerging industry. These jobs are 21st Century manufacturing positions in a cleanroom environment, where employees control processes and problem solve on the spot. It is a very different environment from factory jobs of the past.
This industry is growing every day with the companies here and the people who work for them. Though we are currently making lithium-ion batteries to power cars, the future applications of this technology are evolving and constantly emerging.
