The applications are now closed. 

The Faraday Institution is looking to nominate a cohort of inaugural Battery Ambassadors, one per country, with the goal of further promoting battery technology and energy storage research and networking across sub–Saharan Africa, South Asia and the Indo-Pacific. This is in partnership with the Transforming Energy Access Learning Partnership (TEA-LP) as part of the Ayrton Challenge on Energy Storage (ACES). 

The vision is to create a strong Battery Network of professionals working in this sector, that will enable knowledge transfer and skill development that supports the advancement of the clean energy transition. Battery Ambassadors will play a key role in gathering battery experts in their country to be part of this initiative.
