The Peloton Leadership Network is pleased to announce the appointment of Jason Hinde as Director of Engineering for Faradion, the innovative, early-stage battery company pioneering the next generation of low-cost battery materials.
Based on their IP and know-how in sodium-ion technology, Faradion has produced an exciting, ‘drop-in’ battery capable of competing on a like-for-like basis with lithium-ion platforms, but for significantly less cost. Their batteries have the potential to play a significant role in energy storage for technologies reliant on high performing, low cost batteries, such as grid storage and electric vehicles. Faradion was founded in 2010 and has raised approximately £4 million to date from investors that include Finance Yorkshire, Rising Stars, Sharp Electronics and catalysis company, Haldor Topsoe.
Jason joins with nearly 30-years in the advanced battery industry, having worked with AEA Technologies, AGM Batteries, Fife Batteries and CellCare Technologies.
