PODCAST: Dr Ramez Elgammal of The Coretec Group on silicon anodes and assessing battery development for electric aircraft

Our next pod­cast episode is now live! This week, we were delight­ed to be joined by Dr Ramez Elgam­mal, CTO at The Coretec Group.

In this episode, Dr Elgam­mal intro­duces us to the com­pa­ny and where it fits into the emerg­ing Advanced Air Mobil­i­ty mar­ket.

He tells us about the advan­tages of sil­i­con anodes and why they are crit­i­cal to eVTOL air­craft devel­op­ment, plus gives us an idea at what stage the indus­try is at when it comes to bat­ter­ies for elec­tric air­craft — espe­cial­ly with some com­pa­nies tar­get­ing com­mer­cial oper­a­tions as ear­ly as 2026.

We talk about the var­i­ous projects the Coretec Group is work­ing on, and what can be done to min­imise the envi­ron­men­tal impact on eVTOL pro­duc­tion. And final­ly, we dis­cuss the effi­cient and light­weight ener­gy stor­age solu­tions to improve effi­cien­cy, extend flight range and boost over­all per­for­mance.
