What we do
Britishvolt is on track to deliver a 30GWh battery Gigaplant, positioned on the best site in the UK. The mission is critical to help safeguard UK plc on the energy transition to electrification.
The Gigaplant site in Cambois, Northumberland, close to Blyth, is without question the best site in the UK. Fully plugged into the national grid, ready to go, located next to an abundance of renewable energy.
It is logical to build any battery cell manufacturing site as close to a renewable energy source as possible, in order to counter the energy intensity of the production process.
In Northumberland renewable energy is plentiful. The entire area fully embodies the transition to a low carbon future. The county is a buzz of energy, and a proud home for Britishvolt’s first full-scale Gigaplant. The site itself is a phoenix from the flames, having been the coal store for the former Blyth Power Station.
50 Football Pitches
Would fit in the Britishvolt site.
We will be implementing and developing with our equipment supply partners the latest advances in mixing, electrode and cell manufacturing techniques focussed in the areas of:
If the annual production of cells were placed end to end they would go once around the earth which is24,901 Miles
Collaboration is key on our quest to a low-carbon future. Technology advancements will be crucial to improving battery performance and efficiencies.
Located in Northumberland, creating up to 3,000 jobs in North East of England & more in the supply chain.
Coastal location, supported by 1.4GW of renewable energy supply (hydroelectric).
Sustainability is imperative to the future of humankind; batteries for electric cars will be at the very core of that future.
Britishvolt is fully committed to creating environmentally friendly, low carbon lithium-ion batteries that push the planet ahead on the quest to net-zero. Fossil fuels days are numbered, the future is clean and renewable.
Energy storage systems are the next step in our journey.
They will provide battery solutions to homes, offices and communities as the transition unfolds. They also support renewable power generation sites, allowing solar, wind, hydro and other forms of renewable energy to be harnessed and stored at source.
Britishvolt are at the cutting edge of research and development into novel and innovative battery technology.
We also have our eyes fixed firmly into the future; constantly looking for new ways to improve performance characteristics and develop ways to get raw materials back by recycling end-of-life batteries.
