Opportunities in the UK battery sector

Wednesday, September 15, 2021 10:30 - 11:00

The presentation will cover opportunities in the UK battery sector, including the Government’s Faraday Battery Challenge (FBC), which was created to fast track the commercialisation of cost-effective, high-performance, durable, safe, low-weight and recyclable batteries. The Challenge supports the UK’s ambitious climate change targets, which includes achieving ‘net zero’ carbon emissions by 2050 and, for the automotive sector, an end to the sale of petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030. UKBIC is the newly opened national  battery manufacturing development facility in Coventry, built to support UK industry with development of battery technologies for future electrification.
