In July 2017, Business Secretary Greg Clark launched the Faraday Battery Challenge as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF).

The Faraday Challenge is a commitment of £246 million, designed to take battery ideas inspired by commercial application, all the way from fundamental research through development, innovation and industrial scale up.

At the Battery and Energy Storage 2017 Conference, held at the University of Warwick on Wednesday 29th of November 2017, Mr. Clark announced the 27 winning projects of the first £40 million of Faraday Challenge funds.

The second round of Faraday Battery Challenge innovation funding will be opened by Innovate UK on 22nd January 2018, with a deadline for applications on 28th March 2018. The briefing event for this will be held on the 24th January 2018 and will be hosted by the Knowledge Transfer Network.
