Energy Storage Consultancy

Drs 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. Their reports, workshops and learning material can be tailored to keep investors and company teams up to date with future trends, technology assessments, smart infrastructure, and more.
