Everyone is quite concerned about the existence of the automotive sector in the United Kingdom since there is a risk of losing the automotive sector due to a shortage of battery and fuel cell technology.

As the competition rises, inside the domain of battery manufacturing. And due to the shortage of chips utilized in the automotive sector. This report of fuel cell technology and the battery presented to you to make you aware of the battery and fuel cell Technology crisis in the United Kingdom. We carried out our research, and data was finally collected.

The United Kingdom is at greater risk of losing hands from the automotive sector that currently exists. it is a major risk of falling behind the Global competitors as the manufacture of batteries and fuel cell technology

However, there are wider opportunities to take a lead in this Global competition of battery and fuel cell technology in the UK. But it requires the Government of the UK to act on the recommendations. The recommendations and suggestions provided comprise innovation skills and the supply chain.

Everyone knows that the supply chain is the backbone of any sector.

The chairperson Patel states that “ to avoid the danger of losing the automotive sector currently in the UK Government should act immediately.

Moreover, there is a chance to lose the lead globally in the field of fuel cells and batteries.”

The strategy that should be under implementation:

Development related to technology.

If the strategies are under implementation, then everyone can have a brief idea regarding the deadlines and decisions to be quickly made before the downfall of the Automotive sector.

The committee responsible for the statistical approach suggests that workers with a set of skills increased the amount of funding on research and development, a sense of urgency, and to be clear regarding the sales of HGV.

Due to the shortage of semiconductor chips, the whole world is facing immense amounts of pressure.

The Global leading manufacturers of automobiles, such as Volkswagen, BMW, @Japan Motors, and many more are also facing huge losses.


Issues that are solvable by strategies.

The list of automobile exporters is huge. It includes UK car exporters and Japanese car exporters,  and many many more. Recent suggestions and announcements help us understand the requirements of giga-factories.

But the giga-factories require a large period to scale up and to build up.

Since time is not on the United Kingdom’s side right now. It is an important decision to implement, whether the automotive sector moves to another country for space in the United Kingdom.

A similar situation was also faced by Taiwan and Taiwan Moved its semiconductor chip sector to China.

Another factor affecting the movement of the automotive sector overseas comprises the agreement with the EU.

But this agreement comes into play in the year 2027.

This agreement requires that only e 55% of the automobiles components be precisely manufactured

inside the EU or in the United Kingdom.

But if the United Kingdom fails to manufacture, then the automotive sector will move to the EU.

Not only the manufacturing of automobiles in the UK but Used cars like Toyota used cars are facing

Huge losses all around the globe and in the UK.

The brand Honda is also under the effect of decrement In sales of Honda used cars.

The Government of the United Kingdom must take urgent actions to develop strategies to manufacture

or import raw materials. the first thing the United Kingdom must do is to utilize the natural resources,

recycling and collaborating with countries having a large number of natural resources

In the year 2030, the selling of petrol and diesel cars in the United Kingdom will face

The end of petrol and diesel cars.

To increase the bar of skills and training of mechanical and electrical staff.

The government must train the current staff or recruit staff from overseas.

The PM of the Uk stated that “In near future, there will be new advanced technologies, innovations

and will be present for the future time providing foundation and growth. Creating multiple opportunities.”

Position affecting Millions:

  1. Will the shortage of batteries affect you?
  2. How will the technology work?
  3. What are current targets to meet?
  4. Why do we underlies data and what is underutilization?
  5. How should we do?

Current position and Situation:

The United Kingdom transferred batteries Directive to UK Batteries (Waste) and regulations on 5th May 2009. This act of responsibility must have been already fulfilled on 26th Sep 2008.

The UK market is now composed of Portable automotive batteries due to the regulations.

Automotive Batteries:

  • Required for a vehicle to start the engine.
  • Required to power the lights or indicators in a vehicle.

Industrial batteries:

  • Designed for industrial and/or professional use.
  • Hybrid vehicles utilize it.
  • Unsealed but not utilized in automotive.

Portable batteries:

  • Sealed
  • Weighs up to 4 Kilos or under.
  • Different from automotive and industrial batteries.

Conclusion – Situation and Its Solution:

Due to the pandemic, each country is facing different situations in different industries. For example, Taiwan and Japan faced semi-conductors chips in new automobiles.

Pakistan is facing power failures. Similarly, the United Kingdom is facing a shortage of batteries and fuel cells.

The UK comprises the best technologies in the automotive industries around the globe. But the shortage of raw materials and no supply from overseas countries.

The UK is facing a huge issue and is ready to solve it as soon as possible.

The UK seeks to build the automotive sector once again with the help of foreign staff. Skilled staff should be under consideration to hire to increase their technological skills.

Moreover, the local staff will learn new techniques and skills from them.

The other benefit is the uplift of the current batteries and fuel cell shortages in the UK.

The prime minister has a vision of a bright and better future for the UK and has stated his view as mentioned above.

It highly depends whether the Uk reaches 55% of manufacturing or not in the coming years till 2027.

Or else the sector will shift to the EU.
