High-Energy Battery Technologies


The Faraday Institution project teams are developing technology roadmaps covering a range of areas of battery science and technology. Their purpose is to present an overview of the fundamental challenges impeding the development the particular technology for commercial use, the advances in science and technology necessary to understand the underlying science, and the multidisciplinary approach being taken by Faraday Institution researchers in facing these challenges. It is our hope that these roadmaps will guide academia, industry, and funding agencies towards the further development of such batteries in the future.
