Speaker: Join Nick Russel (Denchi Group) & Jacqui Murray (Faraday Battery Challenge)

The UK has a thriving battery innovation and development ecosystem. Battery start-ups and SMEs abound. But are they growing fast enough to keep the UK ahead in the race to electrification? What impact are they having on big players in automotive, aerospace and elsewhere? And how relevant are they to UK manufacturers of products using batteries we see in and around our houses and gardens?

Faraday Battery Challenge webinar series: An update on the UK Battery Industrialisation Centre

Speaker: Jeff Pratt, UK Battery Industrialisation Centre

The UK Battery Industrialisation Centre is going to be open for business later this year. The £129m facility – the only one of its type in the world – will be used by companies and organisations with a promising new battery technology or design that they want to scale-up so long as that technology can bring growth to the UK. The technology will be at least as good as that found in any of the battery ‘Gigafactories’ being built across the globe, and will support the growth of electric vehicles and fast-track battery technology for use in rail, aerospace, industrial equipment, automotive, off highway and static energy storage.

 

Hear Jeff Pratt, Managing Director at the UK Battery Industrialisation Centre speak about the facility and why scale-up is key to fast tracking the development of cost-effective, high-performance, durable, safe, low-weight and recyclable batteries.

Faraday Battery Challenge webinar series: Lithium-sulfur batteries: a game changer for aerospace, defense and automotive?

When Jul 30, 2020

Speaker: Prof Paul Shearing, UCL

Lithium-sulfur batteries have the potential be a cheaper, lighter weight, safer alternative to lithium-ion. But significant research challenges must be overcome before the technology could be deployed successfully at scale. If this is achieved the electrification of industries such as drones, satellites, defense, in which saving weight is a key factor, could be unlocked.

Join Prof Paul Shearing of UCL, and Principal Investigator of the Faraday Institution’s LiSTAR project, who will outline what is state-of-the-art Li-S technology now, share his views on how commercialisation of this technology could be accelerated, enabling these emergent markets, and potentially impact the electrification of road transport in the longer term.
