The Faraday Battery Challenge (FBC) programme is investing £610 million to drive the growth of a world-class scientific, technology development and manufacturing scale-up capability for batteries in the UK.

Its main objectives are to:

Ensure the automotive industry meets its net zero commitments by enabling the development and scale-up of sustainable battery technologies.

Enable the country to prosper from a just and fair transition to battery electrification across the nation, through the development of a world-class intellectual and physical supply chain.

This document gives an overview of the UK government’s funding impact, delivered through the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) FBC programme and highlights many success stories of organisations that have been funded over the last five years.
