  • Between 750-800 million people globally lack access to a reliable source of electricity. One possible solution to enhance the reliability of energy supply and maximise power availability from low-carbon, renewable energy sources is the increased use of battery energy storage. In the latest public engagement event in partnership with Faraday Institution, we take a deep dive into the research, systems engineering, and logistical challenges (and their solutions) of accelerating the deployment of batteries in emerging economies for micro-mobility and static energy storage.
  • In the lead-up to COP28, would you like to know more about how energy storage will support the UN's Sustainable Development Goals towards Affordable and Clean Energy and Climate Action? Join a panel of experts to find out.
  • To help set the scene for this lecture, Professor Charlotte Watts, Chief Scientific Advisor at the UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) will outline how batteries can play a pivotal role in emerging economies. From there, discover the current state of play of sodium-ion batteries with Emma Kendrick, Professor of Energy Materials at the University of Birmingham, and learn about the importance of diagnostics and systems engineering in extending the life of batteries with David Howey, Professor of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford.
