Save the dates!! 

The conference theme will be Driving towards sustainable electrification of the UK 

We warmly invite participants from across the UK battery energy storage research, development and innovation ecosystem to attend – whether working in academia, industry or policy, and those involved directly in Faraday Institution projects or not.  

Join us for what will be the Faraday Institution’s largest and most open science dissemination and networking event to date. This will be a large-scale event; we’re expecting up to 500 delegates.  

The event will bring together the community of UK academics, industry organisations, policy makers and funders to disseminate battery research and raise the visibility of UK scientific excellence in energy storage.  

The conference will be structured to facilitate networking, collaboration and partnership and develop shared understanding of industry challenges and the academic research underway that will deliver advances in underpinning science and engineering to meet those challenges. 

Held over 3 days, it will encompass multiple parallel sessions, poster presentations, other development opportunities for early career researchers, an exhibition area, and much more.

Great Hall DinnerThe conference is using the innovative Teaching and Learning Centre as the venue as well as the iconic Great Hall for the conference dinner, both located at the heart of the University of Birmingham campus. We welcome the opportunity that the conference will offer the university to showcase their conferencing and scientific facilities and to further convene the regional battery research and innovation ecosystem. 

We are pleased to be working with the University of Birmingham, a Scientific Programme Board, and the Local Organising Committee to plan and deliver the conference. The two committees have broad representation across universities, career stages, research disciplines, and including industry representatives and academics sitting outside current Faraday Institution projects. The conference organising committees are being chaired by Professors Emma Kendrick, Peter Slater and Paul Anderson from the University of Birmingham.
