Faraday Institution at Future Cities Forum


We are delighted that Stephen Gifford, Head of Economics and Market Insights at The Faraday Institution will be speaking at our September forum on place-making and mobility.

The Faraday Institution is the UK's independent institute for electrochemical energy storage research and skills development. It brings together scientists and industry partners on research projects to reduce battery cost, weight and volume, to improve performance and reliability and to develop whole-life strategies including recycling and reuse.

Stephen joined the Faraday Institution in March this year and his focus is on making the organisation the go-to place for insights into the technological, economic and social benefits of batteries and electrical storage. He is developing techno-economic models of supply, demand and cost, covering both global and the UK markets.

He has over 25 years of economics experience,
