Energy carrying systems

See how we are making electric transport commercially viable. 

The challenge

The commercial viability of energy carrying systems is often undermined by their inherent qualities. They are too heavy, too bulky, too costly or operate at sub-optimal temperatures. 

Our response

We are tackling these challenges to develop systems that will make electric transport commercially viable. We will be looking at hydrogen storage, battery technology, fuel cells. We aim to develop pilot scale demonstrators in the energy storage lab.
