have been selected out of fifty entries and awarded one of twelve grants from the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) Advanced Route to Market Demonstrator
(ARMD) competition, as part of a massive effort to develop ‘green’ technologies in the UK.
The company’s office in Cardiff will use this funding to hire skilled engineers that will develop its patent in Electronic Magnetic Gearing (EMG) in the e-mobility space and workers to manufacture it.
Nabeel Shirazee, CTO of ePropelled, said: “This project, called Smart Efficient Electric Machine Systems (SEEMS), aims to dramatically improve the range and efficiency of future electric vehicles.
“Our patented technology, EMG, already extends range of battery or reduces the battery size, reduces material cost, draws less current, therefore extending the life of the battery, motor, and motor controller.”
Zoe Hall, head of competitions and projects at the APC, said: “The Advanced Route to Market Demonstrator
(ARMD) competition has been a great success and we are delighted to support these aspirational projects, which will help contribute to a thriving future in UK Industry.
“The whole process, along with the review of so many applications, has proved extremely beneficial in showcasing the continued demand for R&D support in this space.”
