Welcome to Battery Associates
Battery Associates (B.A) is an impact-led company working towards sustainable battery innovation. We adopt a multidisciplinary approach to solve battery challenges and offer cutting edge solutions for the battery sector worldwide.
We believe in the transformative potential of a sustainable battery value chain and lead impactful projects that accelerate the sustainable battery innovation. We drive impact from BatteryPRO, our global network of battery experts; BatteryLAB, our platform for innovative battery projects; and BatteryEDU, our educational training programmes for battery enthusiasts.
Our programmes address the sector's most pressing issues like the lack of a trained battery workforce, the absence of affordable and open-source battery testing kits, and the lack of transparency in the battery supply chain.
Batteries play a tremendous role in the energy transition and support the United Nations SDGs. They contribute to decarbonising the mobility sector and enable decentralised and off-grid energy solutions. Batteries also help increase access to reliable energy for off-grid communities worldwide. Our commitment is to help accelerate sustainable battery innovation to unlock the positive impact of battery technology.
By transforming renewable energy into a reliable source, batteries contribute to bringing the transportation and power sectors to GHG neutrality. It is reported that batteries could enable 30% of the required reductions in carbon emissions in key sectors and provide access to electricity to over 600 million people globally.
