Working as a co-located team since 2011, WMG has conducted collaborative research with Jaguar Land Rover to define the performance, safety and degradation properties of lithium-ion batteries, through a comprehensive programme of experimentation and modelling.

WMG’s research insights into the functionality of lithium-ion batteries has underpinned the battery development for the company’s first electric vehicle (the Jaguar I-PACE) and has been vital to the company’s swift transition from a manufacturer of vehicles reliant on fossil fuels to one at the forefront of electric vehicle (EV) production.

WMG’s researchers applied their modelling and battery management systems knowhow to help develop a power balancing algorithm that allowed optimal performance of the cells. A vital piece of knowledge in the development of the I-PACE.
