- The University of Manchester project is one of three awarded a share of £2m to strengthen the UK’s global role in energy storage research.
- The Faraday Institution has awarded £500,000 to researchers at The University of Manchester, as one of three UK-based consortia conducting research on battery characterisation and analytical techniques.
Dr Robert Weatherup, from the Department of Chemistry at the University, will lead a £500,000 project, called “What lies beneath? Probing buried interfaces in working batteries”. The project aims to accelerate the understanding of battery materials, and enable scientific breakthroughs that will ultimately improve the performance of electric vehicles (EVs).
