A coordinated approach to discover,
develop and deploy the next generation
of cathode materials

FutureCat Ambitions

– Funded by the Faraday Institution this collaborative project has set out to develop cathode materials to drive the transition towards electric vehicles –

Framework

– Developing cathodes that hold more charge and withstand prolonged cycling –
– Promote ion mobility to increase durability, range and acceleration for the electric vehicle market –

We need to produce electric vehicles that are capable of travelling further and have longer lasting batteries.

Consortium Map

– 5 academic institutions –
– 9 industrial partners –
The project’s Principal Investigator is Professor Serena Corr of the University of Sheffield.

Time is of the essence

This project must be fast and agile to develop cathodes suitable for modern demands.
To reduce global emissions a fast transition to electric vehicles is needed. For this to occur we must produce batteries to travel further and last for longer.
A green transition must be based on lower energy synthesis procedures and earth abundant materials.
