Nyobolt’s new recruit returns to Cambridge roots


Nyobolt, the original founder of ultra-fast charge, high-power lithium-ion battery technology, has hired ex-Mercedes and Ricardo specialist Shane Davies to lead its Software and Controls department.

The team aims to deliver Cambridge-based Nyobolt’s innovative and advanced battery and charging technology into customer projects.

With over 25 years of expertise in the automotive industry, Davies led development teams across multiple areas within hybrid and electric vehicles segments.

His career began in 1996 in Cambridge-based software startup Tarragon Embedded technology; he has subsequently worked for Ricardo, MathWorks and Mercedes AMG in senior roles.

Nyobolt’s globally-renowned experts have pioneered a new class of battery technology, achieving record-breaking ultrafast charging and the world’s highest power batteries.

Davies said: “I’m extremely excited to be joining a company that’s establishing itself at the forefront of the electric revolution. Nyobolt is assembling an impressive team of industry experts to deliver on its cutting-edge battery and charging technology and I’m looking forward to leading the charge in the software and controls area.”

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.

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 through operations in the UK, US, and Asia.

The company recently secured $10 million in Series A funding to build pilot facilities and grow engineering and application capabilities.
