Organisations can apply for a share of £25 million to support low-carbon propulsion technology in the automotive sector.
The need to reduce UK carbon emissions has created new industries and opportunities. This is outlined in the 2016 Industrial Strategy Automotive Sector Deal, 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.
£25 million is available through an Innovate UK and Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) competition to support pre-production projects that can enhance the UK’s long-term capabilities and supply chain in zero-emission vehicles.
Developing the zero-emission supply chain
The APC 13 competition is seeking collaborative R&D projects that can support the long-term development and supply chain of zero-emission vehicles.
