The Industrial Strategy sets out how we are building a Britain fit for the future. But unlike the industrial revolutions of the past, our new industrial strategy needs to be powered by clean energy. As such, there is growing demand for batteries for electrification.

New technologies introduce new challenges - especially when it comes to health and safety.


This inaugural conference took place at the IET, Savoy Place, London on the 14th November 2019, uniting keynote speakers from industry, government, research and standards-making to share knowledge, insight and current thinking so that together we can overcome the health and safety challenges of innovating and regulating this growing area of new technology.


The Industrial Strategy sets out how we are building a Britain fit for the future - how we will help businesses create better, higher-paying jobs in every part of the United Kingdom with investment in the skills, industries and infrastructure of the future. It ensures that our country and its citizens can embrace and benefit from the opportunity of technological change.

But unlike the industrial revolutions of the past, our new industrial strategy needs to be powered by clean energy.

As such, there is growing demand for batteries for electrification.Battery

The government is investing millions of pounds in research and innovation projects and new facilities to scale-up and advance the production, use and recycling of batteries.

While government investment is initially focusing on the automotive sector to meet the growing global demand for electric vehicles, investment in this area will also help advance battery development for other applications for an electrified economy.

But new technologies introduce new challenges - especially when it comes to health and safety.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is responding to these challenges by hosting Innovation in Battery Technology - Safely Enabling the Industrial Strategy.

Partnership and collaboration will be key in developing an evidence base that can underpin future health and safety systems for battery technology and this inaugural conference will unite keynote speakers from industry, government, research and standards-making to share knowledge, insight and current thinking so that together we can overcome the health and safety challenges of innovating and regulating this growing area of new technology.
