Williams Advanced Engineering – H1PERBAT

Preparing for an electric future

Project Highlights 

  • Expansion of Williams Advanced Engineering’s battery production capability
  • Aims to overcome supply chain gaps by creating low-volume manufacturing and testing
  • Batteries developed will be supplied to UK vehicle manufacturers
  • Ensures the UK is well positioned to capitalise on its electric vehicle market growth
  • £17 million total project value, receiving £7.1 million funding through the APC

Project Consortium 

  • William Advanced Engineering Ltd (lead partner)

From cradle to the grave

The H1PERBAT project takes an integrated full lifecycle approach to remove constraints on capacity, energy density and thermal management of EV batteries at module and system level to realise a step change in performance for demanding EV applications. The novel pilot facility will anchor unique UK capability in module and system-level R&D. It will provide the knowledge to enable scale-up of production volumes, allowing Williams to flexibly target UK and global electric vehicle manufacturers.
