Battery Cells & Systems

15/05/2024 - 16/05/2024

Battery Cells & Systems Expo will bring together automotive manufacturers, electric utilities, battery system integrators, cell manufacturers and the entire manufacturing supply chain. A truly unique showcase, companies from around the world will use the show to launch products and demonstrate their technology to an audience of over 5,000 professionals.

Co-Located with Vehicle Electrification Expo and The Advanced Materials Show, this will be a highly concentrated two days of networking, lead generation and education featuring the leaders and innovators responsible for shaping the future of this industry.

The Faraday Institution will be based at the event as part of the UKRI Innovate UK stand, number 1109. You can take a look at the exhibitor map here.

Our Research Programme Director, James Gaade, is talking on the panel “Overcoming Issues of Scale: How Can the UK Turn World-Leading Research into World-Leading Industry?” on Tuesday 15th May from 10:10-10:50 with:

  • Bob Galyen, CEO, Galyen Energy
  • Dr. Allan Paterson, Head of Battery Development, WAE
  • Sean Gilgunn, MD, UKBIC

According to the International Energy Agency, “Li-ion battery demand increased by about 65% to 550 GWh last year, primarily as a result of growth in electric passenger car sales, with new registrations increasing by 55%.” Demand is not slowing down, and neither can the battery industry. However, building the foundations for a competitive battery manufacturing presents a real challenge for UK-based businesses. This session will address how the UK can turn its world-leading research capabilities into world-class manufacturing.
