A rack of EnerVenue nickel-hydrogen Energy storage vessels.

EnerVenue develops nickel-hydrogen batteries originally made for aerospace applications. Today, these batteries are made to withstand extreme weather conditions, last for over 30 years, and offer superior overcharge, over-discharge, and deep-cycle capabilities. The next stage for EnerVenue is a $264 million manufacturing facility in Shelby County, Kentucky. The facility, which will span over 70 acres, will provide over 400 fill time jobs to Kentucky residents. Both Shelby County and the state of Kentucky offered the company generous property and wage tax rebates totaling $20 million. These batteries are intended to support the clean energy movement in Kentucky as well as boost the local economy.
