The Volkswagen Group has recently announced that it will install its new battery plant in Sagunto, a news that has been applauded by different Valencian politicians and state representatives. This is the case of the vice-president Mónica Oltra, who has assured that these are “very good news”. She emphasized that when we talk about batteries, we talk about “ecological transition” and therefore it is a bet “for an industry within this green and ecological transition that we have to do.”
For his part, the president of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, emphasized that “Sagunto will respond to the needs of future generations who demand mobility solutions and that these are more environmentally friendly, efficient and safer”. In short, it is a commitment that will boost the recovery of the Valencian economy with the manufacture (using renewable energies) of sustainable batteries.
