Bringing together expertise from universities and industry, and as part of the Faraday Battery Challenge, the Faraday Institution endeavours to make the UK the go-to place for the research, development, manufacture and production of new electrical storage technologies for both the automotive and the wider relevant sectors.

The Faraday Institution funds application-inspired basic research in electrochemical energy storage. The most promising research coming out of the Institution will be developed for real-world use through the pipeline of innovation and application established through the Faraday Battery Challenge. This model will discover new materials, leading to game-changing tech breakthroughs.

The Faraday Institution brings together scientists, industry partners, and government funding with a common goal. We invest in collaborative research to reduce battery cost, weight, and volume; to improve performance and reliability; to develop scalable designs; to improve our manufacturing; to develop whole-life strategies from mining to recycling to second use; and to accelerate commercialisation.

We will develop a National Skills Framework for the auto sector, to prepare regional and national workforces for the transition to a fully electric future. This will provide new models of education and training for skilled workers while creating new and expanded employment.
