This event will be live streamed via webcast
Faraday Battery Challenge webinar series

The Faraday Battery Challenge, in partnership with KTN, bring you a series of seminars on defining subjects for the future electrification of transport and other sectors.


Join key industry figures and leading academics as they discuss the advances that are currently being made, debate the potential that different technologies and initiatives have in transforming mobility and contributing to the success of the UK in the global energy transition.


From fundamental scientific research, through innovation programmes and manufacturing scale up, engage with the Challenge to initiate and deepen business’ involvement in its programmes.


Lithium-sulfur batteries have the potential be a cheaper, lighter weight, safer alternative to lithium-ion. But significant research challenges must be overcome before the technology could be deployed successfully at scale. If this is achieved the electrification of industries such as drones, satellites, defense, in which saving weight is a key factor, could be unlocked.


Join Prof Paul Shearing of UCL, and Principal Investigator of the Faraday Institution’s LiSTAR project, who will outline what is state-of-the-art Li-S technology now, share his views on how commercialisation of this technology could be accelerated, enabling these emergent markets, and potentially impact the electrification of road transport in the longer term.
