Work complete on new WMG battery testing laboratory

We’ve finished our work to install an advanced new battery testing facility next to WMG’s Energy Innovation Centre (EIC).

Funded through the Government’s Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) programme, this new addition to our campus will provide our researchers with the technology they need to push the boundaries of sustainable energy storage.

The new WMG battery testing facility is a key part of the University’s work as the lead on ERA’s integrated energy systems research theme (I-ERA). Through I-ERA, WMG is creating facilities unique in the UK to enable research to deliver energy approaches based on electro-chemical energy storage to address major energy use markets, including buildings, transport and manufacturing.
