Blythe Gigafactory

One of the funniest things I heard on the radio over the last few weeks was a PM on radio 4 where the tech reporter was going on about this gigafactory.  At the end Evan Davies said something along the lines of 'one thing I've been dying to ask -- why  exactly is it called a gigafactory?'  The tech reporter's twaddle-monged reply reminded me of this:

Coz Cokey Elon named it.

But thats my point.

Gigafactory are a Tesla thang.

And you cant just built a building - with public money - which seems to be what they are angling at. And suddenly expect a LiON factory to suddenly appear.

Teslas factories, which are v good, came about due to Teslas demand for LION batteries being ~1000x(? more) what a laptop needs.

This sounds like a joint venture between some crooks and properdee developers.

You can see the logic 

Electric cars need batteries - where the batteries are built the car building will follow (mainly because you don't want to ship li-ion batteries around unless surrounded by a large metal package that protects the dangerous batteries).

But as you say where is the expertise to build those batteries in the partnership building the factory?

Looks like another government money extraction scheme. , the solar farms have evolved into this. Strike while the iron is hot etc!
