FBC aims to scale-up the development of battery technology in the UK and deliver world-class capability. It’s focused on developing cost-effective, high-performance, durable, safe and recyclable batteries for a growing market.
Transforming best practice for battery manufacturing
The connected digital world is driving unprecedented demand for batteries. The time is right for a considered, end-to-end review of the sector.
Faraday Battery Challenge (FBC)
Helping UK businesses navigate the challenges of rapid growth
The acceleration of the market highlighted pressing challenges critical to the government and the sector – around health, safety and environmental considerations.
The need was identified to develop and codify good practice to fill in key knowledge gaps and respond to questions seen as critical by the UK Battery Industrialization Centre and UK industry. Consultation would include companies and stakeholders already associated with the FBC, and attract new ones.
Aligning sustainability with standardization
Facilitated workshops with industry and government stakeholders helped develop detailed scopes for the three PASs and secured industry involvement in the PAS and roadmap development process.
The standards focus on different parts of the value chain, including health, safety and environmental considerations for battery manufacture in components, and vehicle design.
They include consideration of end of life, second life and recycling aspects; they also form the basis of a wider, long-term standardization to battery manufacturing worldwide.
Powering up opportunity and confidence
Developing a strategic roadmap for future standards and standards uptake will help:
