The Faraday Institution is the research vehicle for the Faraday Battery Challenge, which comprises a $317 million commitment over the next four years to develop, design and manufacture world-leading batteries in the UK. The program is split into three separate elements, delivered in parallel, to provide connectivity across research and innovation strands: research, innovation, and scale-up.
We have reached a tipping point: the electric vehicle is becoming the preferred mode of transportation on grounds of efficiency, cost, and environmental footprint. Continued electrification is making a new economy and will reinvent sectors from transport to power generation and distribution and to banking. Electrical storage is the key technology to make this viable.
