  • autorenew Implementation (Status)

The proposed programme, as part of the Transforming Energy Access (TEA) platform (and, more broadly, the Ayrton Fund portfolio), specifically aims to support clean energy delivery to poor households and businesses in sub-Saharan-Africa, South Asia, and the Indo-Pacific, directly addressing UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) and SDG13 (Climate Action). Working closely with other TEA partners and partners working in other programmes and projects across the Ayrton Fund portfolio, this will build on 3 years of Faraday Institution research, development and deployment under its existing TEA funding. The programme will be delivered through a research programme and supporting actions to develop and test new, cheaper, more sustainable and safer battery energy storage systems (BESS) to replace unsustainable diesel / petrol gensets, directly addressing the Ayrton Fund’s three core research, development and demonstration (RD&D) themes.
