Join us! 10-12 September

We warmly invite participants from across the battery energy storage research, development and innovation ecosystem to attend, from the UK and beyond – whether working in academia, industry or policy. Join us in Newcastle as we continue to grow our community. 

Raise your profile

We invite organisations with an interest in electrochemical energy storage research to support the conference by becoming a sponsor and exhibiting. Take a look at the wide range of opportunities available and get in touch to discuss. 

Call for abstracts

Help shape our conference programme by submitting an abstract for a talk or poster! Open to all academic and industry colleagues with novel research and ideas for collaboration. Deadline to submit is 12 April 2024. 

The Faraday Institution is the UK’s independent institute for electrochemical energy storage research, skills development, market analysis, and early-stage commercialisation. It brings together research scientists and industry partners on commercially valuable projects to reduce battery cost, weight, and volume; improve performance and reliability; and develop whole-life strategies including recycling and reuse.
