Plans submitted for a second clean energy manufacturing facility in Stoke on Trent

Leading energy storage firm, GivEnergy, has submitted plans for its second Stoke on Trent manufacturing facility. These plans form part of the company’s continued, and substantial, investment in North Staffordshire – set to help turn the region into a renewable centre of excellence.

Earlier this year, work began on GivEnergy’s first Stoke on Trent factory. This factory – situated in Chemical Lane, Stoke – is currently in full construction, and forecast for completion in November.

Here, the company will manufacture its commercial battery storage systems – including power conversion systems, high voltage battery packs, SME systems, full commercial open battery racks, and containerised battery systems. These solutions allow businesses to run on clean, low-cost, and low-carbon battery power.

Now, GivEnergy has submitted plans for its second Chemical Lane facility. This factory is earmarked for the production of GivEnergy’s inverters and EV chargers. So, the company will ramp up the UK production of clean energy solutions that help homes achieve net zero.

“We are delighted to reach this planning landmark with a scheme set to help regenerate Stoke on Trent.

From a business perspective, the plans deliver against our goals to nearshore our manufacturing, improve supply for the UK and Europe, and become even more sustainable in our operations.

From a community perspective, meanwhile, we couldn’t be more excited to continue investing in North Staffordshire.

We’re already headquarted in Newcastle under Lyme, following the purchase of a three-storey premises earlier this year. Now, as our local investment continues at pace, we’re absolutely committed to stimulating local job creation in the rewarding renewables sector.

It’s our goal to put North Staffs on the map as a centre of excellence for the renewables industry. With not one but two manufacturing facilities in Stoke on Trent, we’re one step closer to achieving this goal.”

Jason Howlett, GivEnergy CEO
