Storage of electrical energy is a complex and expensive challenge. New and improved solutions are required to balance the evolving demand and supply of these as we electrify our transport system. It is essential that innovations are made to improve the energy density of the batteries to deliver more power, whilst addressing the challenges over size, weight, sustainability and efficiency.
As we drive towards an electrified future, this opportunity becomes ever more of a priority. Finding solutions to some of these challenges will underpin the mass uptake of electric vehicles as well as the additional support that these technologies can provide to add resilience to the grid. Addressing these research challenges will be essential to deliver on future government regulations and reduce the impact that our transport system has on climate change.
The Electrical Energy Storage Network, hosted by WMG, University of Warwick, brings experts together from across disciplines and sectors to collaborate on finding solutions. This expertise spans all engineering disciplines including mechanical, chemical, electrical & electronic engineers and includes specialists with knowledge of materials and manufacturing to drive research and innovation to deliver solutions and disrupters.
