Batteries – the inside story

5 March @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

In just a few decades batteries have gone from something for which almost no one gave a second thought to a technology critical to the functioning of our society and the future of humanity.

The transformation reflects the hunger for electrical energy storage; batteries power the portable electronics revolution; the electric vehicle revolution would not have been possible without the invention of the lithium-ion battery; batteries have a vital role in the decarbonisation of our electricity system.

Professor Sir Peter Bruce FRS, FRSE, FRSC, MAE will discuss why batteries have become central to our society and economy, their role in decarbonisation and energy security.

The most important battery today, lithium-ion, sodium batteries, and possible future developments will be described.

Peter is Wolfson Professor of Materials at the University of Oxford. He is a founder and Chief Scientist of the Faraday Institution, the UK centre for research on electrochemical energy storage.

Peter’s research has been recognised with a number of prestigious awards and fellowships.
