Organisations can now apply for a share of up to £20 million for collaborative projects that reduce emissions and build the UK supply chain.
It’s the latest part in a series of funding competitions delivered in partnership by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC), Innovate UK and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
Through a 10-year, £1 billion joint government and industry commitment, the APC exists to accelerate low carbon propulsion technologies in the UK, aiming to make the UK a global centre of excellence for next-generation low carbon vehicle development and production.
The competition focusses on projects that enhance UK capabilities in low carbon technologies for automotive and create a long-term supply chain, paying particular attention to the design, build and manufacture of zero tailpipe emission vehicles, along with projects that demonstrate a significant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, including motors, batteries, power electronics, hybridisation and alternative propulsion systems.
The areas for consideration include alternative propulsion systems, electric machines and power electronics, energy storage and energy management, lightweight vehicle and powertrain structures and thermal propulsion systems.
The competition opens 7th January 2019, with deadline for applications at midday on 6th March 2019.
