As part of UK Research and Innovation, Innovate UK is providing the funding for feasibility studies & research and development into encouraging new battery technologies, this will help to catalyse the course to commercialisation.

Projects can concentrate on a variety of improvements to battery technologies for the propulsion of EVs for automotive applications, in addition to other regions such as rail, marine, aerospace, defence or off-highway vehicles where modernisation could enable electrification or meet challenging performance requirements.

Areas of work include expanding energy density of battery cells, cost cutback at the cell & pack level in manufacturing, eradicating thermal runway risks, lengthening cell & pack life, new models to better predict range & battery health as well as recyclability, including second life, design for end of life, reuse or recycling.

The battery supply chain could be valued at £12 billion to the UK economy by 2025 if the country can establish itself as a global leader in battery technology according to Innovate UK,
