As per a report by Reuters, a group of seven British organisations including battery materials firm Johnson Matthey, start-up Britishvolt and Oxford University said that they had formed a consortium to develop solid-state batteries for electric vehicles.

The consortium will build a facility to develop prototypes and technologies for the mass production of solid-state batteries. It also includes the government-funded Faraday Institution, which aims to help UK businesses develop and manufacture EV batteries.

The report added that the consortium will build a facility to develop prototypes and technologies for the mass production of solid-state batteries. It also includes the government-funded Faraday Institution, which aims to help UK businesses develop and manufacture EV batteries.

The report added that Christian Gunther, head of battery materials at Johnson Matthey, said in a statement that delivering enhanced range and safety.will be a key driver for battery electric vehicle adoption, supporting the transition to a net zero future

Many manufacturers, including Ford Motor Co and BMW AG, are researching or investing in solid-state battery technology, which should be able to store more energy – meaning greater driving range – and prove safer due to a lack of flammable components, added Reuters.

Britishvolt plans to build a battery factory in northern England that will go into operation in 2023. The plant will be built in three phases and in the last of these due for completion by 2027. It aims to produce solid-state batteries.
