Breaking the Wall to Next-Generation Batteries
How fast-charging batteries work and why they matter

In order for the European Union to achieve its goal of zero net emissions by 2050, the speed at which devices can be charged needs to increase significantly. Clare Grey, Professor of Chemistry at Cambridge University, sees her work as an important contribution towards achieving this goal. She discovered and developed a new niobium-based anode material with unparalleled fast charging and high-powered capabilities. With this and other improvements in cell design, Clare’s work aims to reduce charging times of robots, electric vehicles and other devices that power our modern lives. At Falling Walls, Grey will discuss the importance of this kind of fundamental research in laying the groundwork for rethinking how our society is structured and powered.
