Andrew Deadman – International R&D Partnerships Manager

A warm welcome to Andrew Deadman on his appointment to the role of International R&D Partnerships Manager

Andrew joined the Faraday Institution in July 2023 as the International R&D Partnerships Manager. His focus is on leading the Ayrton Challenge on Energy Storage which will convene, coordinate and collaborate with other government programmes. The challenge aims to create and commercialise innovative battery technologies and associated business models for fossil fuel generator displacement and mobility applications in developing countries, to expand and accelerate the clean energy transition. This includes leading the delivery of an RD&D programme to reduce the cost and improve the performance of battery energy storage system technologies for use in these regions.

Prior to joining the Faraday Institution, Andrew enjoyed a near 27-year career at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the UK’s national measurement institute. There he held a number of technical and managerial roles, most recently as the Group Leader for the Electrochemistry Group. Here he led a group of 20 scientists and engineers who apply world-leading measurement techniques to help improve the performance, safety and lifetime of materials and devices important for the energy transition, including batteries, fuel cells and electrolysers. In 2019 he was seconded to both the Faraday Institution and the Global Battery Alliance.

A physicist, who holds a BSc (Hons) degree in Applied Physics from the University of Portsmouth, Andrew’s technical expertise is in spectrometry, specifically the measurement of the transmittance, reflectance, and colour of materials.
