We asked our industry fellows, industry sprint projects, entrepreneurial fellows and projects that recently began to develop batteries suitable for use in developing countries and emerging economies to highlight their projects and the impact that they’re making.
Delegates are encouraged to connect with researchers on Slack. Passwords and details on how to access Slack were sent to delegates on 1 November (or 8, 11 or 15 November depending on when you registered- check your junk folder).
