As well as our scientific research programmes, the Faraday Institution provides an independent, evidence-based understanding of battery economics, societal issues, capabilities, and competitive position through commissioned studies and insights publications. The aim is to bridge knowledge gaps across industry, academia and government.
The Faraday Institution regularly publishes Faraday Insights, evidence-based assessments of the market, economics, commercial potential, and capabilities for energy storage technologies and the transition to a fully electric UK. The insights are concise briefings that aim to help bridge knowledge gaps across industry, academia, and government.
If you would like to suggest a subject for a future Insight, please contact us.
In addition to our Faraday Insights, the organisation also circulates short press briefings on subjects topical to energy storage policy and market adoption. These provide comment from subject area experts and background information providing insight to journalists.
We welcome approaches from journalists seeking comment on a range of subject areas around battery research, innovation, roll-out and policy. Please contact Communications Lead Louise Gould to set up an interview.
The following Faraday Institution technology roadmaps present an overview of the fundamental challenges impeding the commercial development of a range of energy storage technologies, the necessary advances to understand the underlying science, and the multidisciplinary approach being taken by our researchers in facing these challenges. It is our hope that these roadmaps will guide academia, industry, and funding agencies towards the further development of such batteries in the future.
