A number of clues indicate that it may be acquired by Tesla in the future, or that it at least plays a role in Tesla's battery innovation and coming announcements at Tesla Battery Day. I'll come back to the Tesla–Amprius connections in a minute. First, once I saw the name popping up, I recognized it and decided to check the CleanTechnica archives for it. Let's start there

Until now, it was uncertain when the event would actually take place, and more than that, where it would be.
