Research summary

This research was focused around developing new anode and cathode materials for lithium ion batteries, with the potential to enable higher energy density and a longer cycle life. This could be used for propulsion and enabling regenerative braking of the train, signalling systems and auxiliary applications such as the train’s air conditioning and back-up power needs.

Completion date

February 2021
