Faraday Battery Challenge webinar series – Lithium-sulfur batteries: a game changer for aerospace, defense and automotive?

Thursday 30th July @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Lithium-sulfur batteries have the potential be a cheaper, lighter weight, safer alternative to lithium-ion. But significant research challenges must be overcome before the technology could be deployed successfully at scale. If this is achieved the electrification of industries such as drones, satellites, defense, in which saving weight is a key factor, could be unlocked.

Join Prof Paul Shearing of UCL, and Principal Investigator of the Faraday Institution’s LiSTAR project, who will outline what is state-of-the-art Li-S technology now, share his views on how commercialisation of this technology could be accelerated, enabling these emergent markets, and potentially impact the electrification of road transport in the longer term.
