Energy Storage

Drs Teddy Szemberg O’Connor, Greg Offer, Billy Wu, Yatish Patel and Prof Nigel Brandon (Galvanic Energy) provide interdisciplinary expertise in renewable energy to address the most pressing energy-related challenges we face today.

The Government has set out a policy to put the UK on a path to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 60% by 2050 with every car and van to zero emissions by 2040 with an expected 100M electric vehicles on the road by then.

Lithium ion batteries are currently the most mature technology capable of meeting these targets, however, a number of alternatives are on the horizon. Galvanic Energy utilises the latest scientific research to understand the limitations of current technologies or the risks associated with future ones.

Whether you need assistance implementing or understanding technologies and strategies, Galvanic Energy can provide you with a solution.

The science behind Sci-Fi

The science behind Sci-Fi

When Left Bank Pictures (producers of The Crown and Lost) were looking for someone to give their Sci-fi adventure, ORIGIN, a touch of realism - they called upon Imperial Consultants. Thanks to his previous work with filmmakers, writers and artists, they were introduced to Dr Roberto Trotta, a theoretical cosmologist renowned for taking on the unusual - and gifted in translating ‘science-speak’ into layman’s terms. read more
