The Financial Times Future of the Car summit brings together OEMs, industry shakers and challenger brands to scrutinise the technology, consumer and business model trends that are changing the way cars are made and sold. Now in its 8th year, it is a highly anticipated gathering of carmakers and their technology partners in the global automotive events calendar. This year’s event will be both in person in The Brewery London and virtually. Conference website.
Join Faraday Institution CEO Professor Pam Thomas as she shares her insights on the panel “The rate of progress on solid-state batteries” at 12.10 pm on 12th May. Hailed as a potentially major breakthrough technology for electric cars, solid-state batteries are lighter, have a longer life, and are safer than traditional batteries which use a flammable solution in their construction. When will solid state batteries make it onto the roads? The panel will cover:
- What is solid-state battery technology and why should carmakers pick solid over other options?
- Range and safety improvements go hand-in-hand
- What are the obstacles to deploying solid state batteries in future EV vehicles?
