Research Strategy

We have provided four companies that supply electric vehicle battery components in the United States. Although there are other companies that supply products to electric vehicle companies and battery manufacturers, e.g. China-based companies, we have focused specifically on companies that are based in the USA. We have used each company's website and other information portals, e.g. company information databases to provide the requested information.

Research Strategy

We started our research by going through the websites of each company and found much of the requested information there. Some details, for each company, have been identified from company information databases and news and media sources.
While we were able to find most of the information, customers/clients and contact information were not publicly available in some cases. To find that information, we started by going through each company's website with the thought that this type of information is usually documented on the respective website of the company. Although the website provided some valuable information, some requested details were not published there. Secondly, we looked through press releases from each company with the same rationale as the website but to no avail. As an alternative, we switched to company information databases as these databases stock valuable company information, however, this attempt also proved futile. Lastly, we also looked through news and media articles hoping that some information may have ended up in the news or some company executive may have disclosed this type of information in an interview but this strategy also did not bear fruit. As a result, we have provided whatever information was publicly available for each company.

Quotes
  • "These results validate the science and manufacturing methodology we’ve been working on for a long time. Besides demonstrating that our chemistry and materials are safer, it’s equally as impressive that none of the cells failed and points to an exciting pivot point in our company, one where we move from focusing on R&D to getting our first product commercialized"
