Batteries for Emerging Economies

The Faraday Institution is funding research to reduce the cost and improve the performance of battery technologies for use in developing countries and emerging economies in order to enable the clean energy transition and reduce reliance on diesel generators.


This is part of a wider programme of work being funded by Transforming Energy Access (TEA), funded by UK aid from the UK government. TEA is a research and innovation platform supporting the technologies, business models and skills needed to enable an inclusive clean energy transition.

Through this project and our wider work with the World Economic Forum’s Global Battery Alliance and World Bank’s Energy Storage Partnership the Faraday Institution is in a position to affect global change, helping communities with low or no connectivity to have reliable access to energy sources and bringing economic, social and environment benefits to developing countries and emerging economies.
