In the near term, accelerating the drive towards electric vehicles (EVs) requires the optimisation of lithium-ion battery technology. However, there are fundamental limits to the performance improvements that can be expected from its deployment. So, in the medium to long term, step changes in EV cost, range and safety will have to rely on the commercialisation of new battery chemistries.
Due to the current level of commercialisation of different technologies and the UK’s need to deliver improvements in EVs, the Faraday Institution is pursuing a portfolio of projects.
The Faraday Institution’s portfolio of large scale, mission-driven projects was selected
after consultation with academic and industrial stakeholders across the country, with due
consideration of the potential impact they could make to the UK.
The Faraday Institution is a vibrant, diverse, collaborative community of UK battery scientists and engineers. Together we are innovating the model of how to conduct research towards industry-defined goals. Read how…
