Dr Brett's research is in the area of electrochemical engineering and technology. This includes electrochemical energy conversion and storage (fuel cells, batteries, supercapacitors, electrolysers); electrochemical sensors; electroanalysis, hybrid vehicles and micro-generation technologies. He specializes in developing novel diagnostic techniques for the study of high and low temperature fuel cells and their materials.
He is also active in modelling, instrumentation development, engineering design, device fabrication, materials development and techno-economic analysis of electrochemical energy conversion technologies.
The Electrochemical Innovation Lab
In response to the realisation of the importance of electrochemical technology and the strength that UCL has in this area, The Electrochemical Innovation Lab (EIL) was established in 2010 as a collaboration between the Centre for CO2Technology, UCLB and external partners with a successful history of commercialising electrochemical related technologies.
The EIL is an innovation in university-based research. The EIL’s objectives are to:
- Identify commercial opportunities early in the development cycle
- Increase the rate of progression through Technology Readiness Levels
- Develop new models and opportunity for industry-academia collaboration
- Engender a spirit of enterprise in electrochemical technology research
