Tony Harper, Director of the Faraday Battery Challenge, explains why the UK must build a battery supply chain to support the automotive industry’s transformation to net zero.
The transformation to zero-emission vehicle production is an existential question for the global car industry. UK climate change targets mean that industry in this country must act now to build the supply chains and new processes central to vehicle electrification. That supply chain and vehicle production could go elsewhere in Europe, Asia, or the US, unless industry gets the help it needs to innovate and overcome those difficult first steps to building a UK vehicle battery industry.
AMTE Power is ramping up production of its ultra-high-power battery cells at UKBIC as a precursor to entering mass production at its planned megafactory in Dundee.
AMTE Power plc (LON:AMTE) is a recognised brand in the production of high-quality lithium-ion batteries across a range of markets including automotive, aerospace, defence, oil & gas and energy storage.
