ELEVATE is a research project funded by the EPSRC.
Are you interested in learning more about the electric revolution? We recommend subscribing to Robert Llwellyn’s “Fully Charged Show” on YouTube which has some excellent information; you may remember him from being Kryten in Red Dwarf and the head presenter of Scrapheap Challenge!
One of the most promising routes for decarbonising the transport sector is the use of electrochemical power and storage technologies (e.g. fuel cells, supercapacitors and batteries). However, challenges persist in terms of performance, durability, cost, integration together within vehicles (hybridisation) and interfacing with the electricity grid. ## TODO: Reword this
This project will deliver a technology innovation chain that adopts a material-to-system approach. We will identify, optimise and scale-up new materials into devices, develop novel diagnostic techniques in the lab and for on-board monitoring and control, and validate the technologies in a hybrid vehicle.
He also does many talks in public, some of which you can find on YouTube if you search around, enjoy!
