Form Energy, Inc., an American technology company developing
and commercializing a new class of cost-effective, multi-day energy storage systems, will host a groundbreaking ceremony tomorrow to celebrate the construction of Form Factory 1, the company’s first high-volume manufacturing facility in Weirton, West Virginia. The groundbreaking will take place on site at the former Weirton Steel Mill where Form Factory 1 will be constructed.
Several federal and state officials will provide remarks to celebrate this milestone with Form Energy, including United States Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm, Senator Joe Manchin, Senator Shelley Moore Capito, and West Virginia Governor Jim Justice.

After a robust, year-long nationwide site selection process that started with identifying over 500candidate locations across 16 states, Form Energy selected a 55 acre site in Weirton with strong infrastructure – including direct access to river, rail, and hardened highways – for its first high-volume battery manufacturing plant. Weirton is a historic steel community with the know-how to make great things out of iron.

Form Factory 1 will employ more than 750 people when operating at full capacity. Manufacturing iron air battery systems for broad commercialization is expected to begin in mid-to-late 2024.
