Energy Storage and its Applications

The ground-breaking Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Storage and its Applications at the Universities of Sheffield and Southampton opened in October 2014, funded by the EPSRC, to tackle industrial challenges and develop new technologies and skills that will enable the UK to meet its low carbon targets.

Open Seminar: The UK Battery Innovation Centre and electrochmical energy storage

  • Lecture Theatre 22, Hadfield tower Department of Material Science and Engineering The University of Sheffield UK (map)

Dr John Low is a key member of the UK Battery Innovation Centre at the University of Warwick, which recently won signficant funding through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund to set up. 

Dr Low's work involves the design, build, test, characterisation and post-mortem analysis of electrochemical energy storage devices. They include stationary batteries, flow batteries and supercapacitors for electric transportation and grid-scale energy storage. Research focuses on accelerating the advances in electrochemistry research through to electrochemical engineering scale-up including cell design engineering, device manufacturing (battery, supercapacitor) and process optimisation (chemical, electrochemical).
