Nottingham University Secures £19M for Next-Generation Battery Research

Nottingham University’s Battery Research

The University of Nottingham has secured additional funding for its research into new materials and technologies for next-generation batteries. This project is one of four to receive an investment from the Faraday Institution, the UK’s leading institute for electrochemical energy storage research.

Faraday Institution’s Investment

The Faraday Institution has announced a £19 million investment in four key battery research projects. These projects focus on next-generation cathode materials, electrode manufacturing, and sodium-ion batteries. The aim is to deliver a beneficial impact for the UK.

Nottingham’s FutureCat Project

Researchers from the School of Chemistry have been awarded £230,000 for their ‘FutureCat’ project. This project aims to drive innovation in energy storage technologies and transform the UK energy landscape. The FutureCat project will run over the next 2 years and focus on developing new electrolytes for next-generation cathodes.

UK’s Battery Research Projects

The University of Nottingham is also a core partner in one of six key battery research projects that received a share of £29 million from the Faraday Institution. These projects focus on extending battery life, battery modelling, recycling and reuse, safety, solid-state batteries, and lithium-sulfur batteries.

Faraday Institution’s Commitment

The Faraday Institution remains committed to identifying and investing in battery research initiatives that hold the greatest potential for making significant societal, environmental, and commercial contributions. The majority of the funding for this programme, £17.1 million, is provided by the Faraday Battery Challenge, delivered by Innovate UK for UK Research and Innovation.
