North East’s CPI secures battery research investment

The North East’s CPI (Centre For Process Innovation) is one of the recipients of a multimillion-pound investment to help turbocharge UK’s battery production.

A £12m investment has been awarded by the Faraday Battery Challenge to the High Value Manufacturing Catapult at Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) and CPI at NETPark, in Sedgefield, County Durham. The funding aims to boost production of materials for electric car batteries, through the creation of the new Advanced Materials Battery Industrialisation Centre (AMBIC).

Based at NETPark and at WMG in Coventry, the centre will bridge the gap between academic research and battery production, focusing on how batteries can be made to work more efficiently, as well as on equipment and skills development. The centre aims to aid development of the electric vehicle batteries of the future, with reduced costs, more sustainable materials and improved performance.
