Making that Euro battery

France is calling on European battery makers and car manufacturers to join forces on batteries and electric vehicles in the face of powerful Asian producers.

French energy minister François de Rugy told Reuters that efforts must be at the European level as the French market was not large enough to be competitive.  

Germany recently announced €1bn in support of battery cell production and has a target of 30% of manufacturing coming from Germany and Europe by 2030.
