RI Lecture: Batteries for Emerging Economies

May 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Open to RI Members and non-members, available in-person and via Livestream.

Batteries for Emerging Economies: Discover how batteries will power our planet into the future.

Between 750-800 million people globally lack access to a reliable source of electricity. One possible solution to enhance the reliability of energy supply and maximise power availability from low-carbon, renewable energy sources is the increased use of battery energy storage.

In the latest public engagement event in partnership with Faraday Institution, we take a deep dive into the research, systems engineering, and logistical challenges (and their solutions) of accelerating the deployment of batteries in emerging economies for micro-mobility and static energy storage.

Delivering this lecture are Professor Charlotte Watts (Chief Scientific Advisor at the UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO)), Professor Emma Kendrick (Professor of Energy Materials at the University of Birmingham), and Professor David Howey (Professor of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford).

Doors to the theatre will open at 18:30 and the event will begin at 19:00.

A Royal Institution and Faraday Institution collaboration.
