Dr. Liang Tao has joined lithium-ion battery manufacturer KORE Power Inc. as vice president of R&D and engineering, the company announced on March 7 in a press release.
Formerly the principal of battery strategy and cell engineering for Rivian Automotive Inc., Tao joins KORE with two decades of leadership experience in manufacturing and business across the lithium-ion battery value chain.
“Few people understand the battery market as thoroughly as Dr. Tao,” said KORE CEO and Co-founder Lindsay Gorrill. “From the mining of raw materials and the chemistries of lithium-ion battery products to the end users in energy storage systems and e-mobility, he has built his career advancing batteries, and we’re thrilled to add him to the KORE team.”
Tao holds a doctorate from the University of Maryland and an MBA from Tulane University. His private sector experience includes raw materials in battery manufacturing at Albemarle Corp. and business development, business intelligence, market analysis and data science at Townsend Solutions.
KORE Power is a U.S.-based developer of battery cell technology and integrated solution manufacturer for e-mobility and energy storage.
“KORE Power is uniquely positioned as a domestic manufacturer with U.S.-owned IP to create mission-critical batteries to electrify the transportation sector and create a clean electric grid,” Tao said. “But just as important to me is helping KORE Power deliver on its promise to become a global leader in sustainable manufacturing and a catalyst for economic growth in the U.S. and across the company’s growing footprint.”
