Structural Power Composites
Structural power composites are expected to impact everyday life as we seek to generate, store and consume energy differently.About Us
Vision for structural power composites: Slenderised components and batteryless devices / Multifunctional infrastructures / Localisation of power / Multifunctional structural materials / Sustainable transportation
By reducing the weight of energy-intensive vehicles using structural power composites, we can improve fuel efficiency, accelerate electrification, and reduce global emissions. This ground-breaking technology requires a wide range of expertise from materials design to systems integration.
Material development for structural power composites will be key to their success, hierarchical structures/architectures, and electroactive materials are being investigated.
The Team at Imperial College London is demonstrating the potential of structural power composites as industry leaders.
