In June 2022, the Faraday Institution initiated 16 small, fast-paced, focused projects in areas not covered within its existing battery research portfolio. In doing so it widened its research scope, and set of university partners, in an initiative that will inform future priorities for its research programme beyond March 2022. The projects represent a £2 million investment in research by the Faraday Institution.  

The seed projects, in the areas of anodes, electrolytes, cathodes, next generation technologies, applications and data management, and flow batteries, aimed to deliver transformative results that may lead to a second stage of collaborative research beyond the initial exploratory work.  

Most of the projects have now been completed.
