A coordinated approach to discover, develop and deploy the next generation of cathode materials
– The Faraday Institution’scollaborative FutureCat project has set out to develop cathode materials to drive the transition towards electric vehicles –
– 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.
– 7 academic institutions –
-1 national synchrotron science facility-
– 9 industrial partners –
The project is co-led by two Principal Investigators –
Professor Serena Cussen – University of Sheffield and Professor Louis Piper – University of Warwick
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.
