The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) has opened its 10th funding competition, making up to US$4.1m (£30m) available for the development of low-carbon powertrain technology in the UK.
Open to a consortia of organizations including vehicle manufacturers, Tier 1 suppliers, SMEs and academic institutions, competition funding is available for a wide range of low carbon projects.
These include programs to develop alternative propulsion systems, power electronics and energy storage technology, as well as lightweighting and thermal propulsion systems.
Ian Constance, chief executive of the APC, said, “The development of low carbon powertrain technology remains crucial to the future success of the UK automotive industry. This latest round of APC funding, and the innovations it will support, will help to further establish the UK as a leading destination for the development of low-carbon technology.”
This funding competition is open to projects costing between US$6.8m (£5m) and US$54.4m (£40m), lasting for between 18 and 42 months. Competition entries must be submitted by midday, June 27, 2018.
