RES was founded by Mike Abbott in 2018 as a place to collect, document and share the interesting hobbies ans projects he is involved in.


Mike works on various projects of interest, generally focused on Electrification Technologies, Battery Systems, and Networking



In 2020 Mike and family moved out to Shrewsbury in the heart of Shropshire. It is very green, very quiet and often "smells like cow poop" as Daphne (Daughter, 2) would say.


Mike has a background and great interest in electrified technologies and electric vehicles. This all started with using a 2011 Nissan LEAF on the (at the time free) Electric Highway, it has followed onto a doctorate in Inductive charging system for EVs.


Mikes experiences with both automotive and smart home technologies can come together to build a wide range of useful systems.
