The project aims to make the battery modelling tools that are being developed in academia available to industry. The focus is to apply fundamental science to models in order to improve the predictability of battery systems in automotive and energy storage applications. These models aim to predict ionic, electronic and thermal transport across the atomic and up to battery pack scale. This collaboration utilises teams at several universities to draw from a wide range of disciplines to enable a concerted approach to enable life-time optimisation and prediction of performance parameters, through partnering with battery management systems for greater life-time in the field.
