James spent nine years in higher education, working on research and teaching of various science, technology and energy topics, before focussing on rechargeable battery technology at WMG in Warwick University. He started looking at Li-ion materials reclamation and general recycling, electric vehicle (EV) battery degradation modelling, and the impacts of V2G (vehicle-to-grid) EV battery cycling on lifetime costs in research projects. He then worked in startups as technical expert guiding the build of a battery warranty product, and a novel NaNiCl cell design.
