Faraday Institution opens regional office in North East at Newcastle University

18 October 2021

After the Faraday Institution announced the opening of a regional office, the North East has cemented its position as a central centre for research and innovation in battery development.

Known as Faraday Institution North East (FINE), the office will be based in Newcastle University and led by Prof Colin Herron, MD of Zero Carbon Futures (ZCF).

FINE will bring together many organisations involved in battery innovation, including research and innovation centres, education and skills bodies, regional, national, government and policy representatives.

Battery cell manufacturers and their supply chain partners will also be involved in working together to find opportunities and accelerate innovation.

The success of this pilot project will also enable FINE to explore opportunities to strengthen regional commitment to energy storage in other parts of the UK.
