Funding for zero-emission technologies

Posted on 16 May 2019 and read 1040 times
Funding for zero-emission technologiesThe need to reduce UK carbon emissions has created new industries and opportunities.

This is outlined in the 2016 Industrial Strategy Automotive Sector Deal, which is designed to ensure that the UK benefits from the transition to ultra-low and zero-emission vehicles by continuing to build the innovative and competitive supply chain needed to secure international investment.

Now, £25 million is available through an Innovate UK and Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) competition designed to support pre-production projects that can enhance the UK’s long-term capabilities and supply chain in zero-emission
vehicles.

The APC 13 competition is seeking collaborative R&D projects that can support the long-term development and supply chain of zero-emission vehicles.

Eligible projects must either speed up the development of low-emission
and zero-emission vehicles or demonstrate a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.

This can involve improving production and competitiveness in design, build and manufacturing across technologies such as: alternative propulsion systems; electric machines and power electronics; energy storage and management; lightweight vehicles and powertrain structures; and thermal propulsion systems.

Projects that will make a positive impact on the UK supply chain will be prioritised, and they can include: creating new supply chains in zero-emission vehicles and electrification; delivering a UK-centric high-value manufacturing and sourcing capability; lowering the overall cost of goods sold to customers; and attracting new companies not traditionally serving the automotive sector.

The competition opened on 13 May and the deadline for registration is midday on 10 July.

Organisations wanting to participate must be based in the UK and work with at least one micro, small or medium-size business.

The total eligible costs must be 50% match-funded and between £5 million and £40 million.
