Battery tech pioneer Britishvolt strengthens partnership with WMG

Battery tech pioneer Britishvolt strengthens partnership with WMGNorthumberland-based battery technology pioneer Britishvolt has extended its contract with WMG, at the University of Warwick, to develop battery cell technologies and accelerate the route to market, in a multi-million-pound deal.

Following an initial 12-month project, Britishvolt and WMG are now embarking on a new two-year programme of work. WMG’s research will assist with battery-cell development and optimisation including small-scale manufacturing to produce battery electrodes and cells using Britishvolt target materials sets, formulations and cell designs. These will then be tested according to Britishvolt’s agreed protocols.

Dr Allan Paterson, Britishvolt chief technical officer, said: “We are delighted to extend and expand our relationship and programme of work with WMG, University of Warwick. The battery science, advanced materials and cell prototyping expertise and capability at WMG has directly, and positively, supported our battery technology development programme.

“This gives us not only an excellent basis to progress from, as we seek to scale and commercialise our technologies, but the relationship also enables Britishvolt to continue to develop our products further, as we continually strive to deliver best-in-class, market-leading, cell technologies to our customers.”

The project is helping Britishvolt to deliver a 38GWh battery Gigaplant, one of the largest industrial investments ever undertaken in the UK. The facility, located in the North East of England, will quickly increase the availability of batteries required at commercial scale for the electric vehicle market, and beyond – playing a key role in helping the UK reach its ‘net zero’ target by 2050.

Professor David Greenwood, CEO of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult at WMG, said: “WMG is delighted to be supporting Britishvolt as it sets up large-scale battery manufacturing and research facilities in the UK. This industry will be critical for the future of the UK automotive and energy sectors.

”WMG has been investing over the last decade in the R&D capabilities needed to help Britishvolt and other battery companies to be internationally competitive now and in the future.”
