Delegate views

Delegates to our recent virtual Battery School said:

“A great insight into battery technology from chemistry through to the end of life, the course covers it all”

Nathan Counsell, Technical Lead Ocado

“WMG's Battery School really helped me to deepen my knowledge of all aspects of battery development. The opportunity to hear from a diverse team of presenters who are experts in their fields and to ask questions of them in a learning environment was so valuable. Finally, a big well done on reformatting the course to be successfully run online in these socially-distanced times. Thank you!”

Darren Skilton, Impact & Performance Manager - Faraday Battery Challenge at Innovate UK

"A course which covers all the aspects of Li ion Battery technology. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in gaining a comprehensive knowledge on the current state of art of battery technology in electric vehicles."

Dr Geeta Rani Mutta, Battery Application Scientist, Johnson Matthey
