Schumer was on the Vestal campus on April 18 to offer support for plans to manufacture lithium-ion batteries using technology invented by Nobel laureate, University of Binghamton professor Dr. Stanley Whittingham and facilities at manufacturing of the Imperium 3 New York battery gigafactory under development at the Huron Campus in Endicott.

The Senate Majority Leader said New Energy NY should know in three months whether it is a Challenge Grant winner.

20 of the offerings are set to receive implementation funding of up to $100 million.
