About the project

The SOLBAT project makes up one of the Faraday Institution's 4 parallel 'Fast Start' projects. Started in March 2018 and now extended until April 2025 it is a collaboration led by The University of Oxford, with Newcastle University, Diamond Light Source Ltd. and three other industrial partners, to break down the barriers that are preventing the progression to market of solid-state batteries, that should be lighter and safer, meaning cost savings and less reliance on cooling systems.


The ambition of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of a solid state battery with performance superior to Li-ion in EV applications.
