Nyobolt on the charge with key appointment
Cambridge-headquartered Nyobolt has appointed Iain Mosely as Engineering Director for Charging, to deliver custom high-power charger systems.
Mosely was previously a Senior Director at ChargePoint where he established and led the UK engineering organisation, creating a world leading facility for the development of DC rapid chargers which was a key contributor to ChargePoint’s successful listing on the New York Stock Exchange.
Mosely left ChargePoint in 2020 to grow his own company Electronic Minds, focusing on high performance power electronics for e-Mobility and energy management systems. Mosely brings over 20 years of experience across strategic and operational leadership in engineering to further strengthen Nyobolt’s expertise within the industry.
Nyobolt CEO Sai Shivareddy said: “Having the ability to handle the extra power efficiently and cost-effectively through our own charging systems is an enabler for our fast-charge batteries, just as much as the cells themselves. Iain is recognised as an expert and leader in power electronics for fast-charging and we are excited to welcome Iain to our team as we expand our organisation.”
Mosley said: “As an avid technologist and engineer, it is exciting to see e-mobility and electrification industries driving global change. The experience in the team being built by Sai at Nyobolt is world leading and I am looking forward to working with them to help bring these high-performance battery and energy systems to market”.
Nyobolt is commercialising high-power, ultra-fast-charging Li-ion batteries. The technology builds on a decade of research led by University of Cambridge battery scientist Professor Clare Grey and is exclusively licensed from the University.
Its technology allows batteries to charge faster, deliver more power and work at extreme temperatures, meaning they can be deployed in places current batteries simply do not work.
In April last year, Nyobolt opened an office in Boston, Massachusetts, giving the young company a presence in the UK, the US and Asia. The expansion came just months after unveiling a $10 million Series A funding round led by IQ Capital with participation from Cambridge Enterprise alongside Silicon Valley investors.
The company said that the funding would enable it to expand globally, building new facilities and growing the engineering and operational teams which work with customers to implement and integrate the unique technology into commercial applications to solve their battery challenges.
Nyobolt has assembled a world-leading implementation team combining decades of experience at Tesla, Lotus, Samsung, Dupont, Dyson, General Electric, A123, Innovate UK and Arthur D. Little.
Alongside his role of Engineering Director for Charging, Mosely will continue encouraging the future of engineering through STEM training programmes and seeks to empower the next generation of engineers to pursue their goals and aspirations.
