A new funding competition will support the development of low carbon vehicle technologies in the UK.

The latest round of funding from the Advanced Propulsion Centre, in partnership with the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Innovate UK, aims to take demonstrated on-vehicle systems towards commercialisation.

Project innovations need to significantly reduce vehicle emissions such as Carbon Dioxide and also increase capability in the supply chain for low carbon vehicle propulsion or lightweight systems.

They’re expected to range in size from total costs of around £5 million up to £40 million and should last somewhere between 18 and 42 months.

They must involve a collaboration between at least one car manufacturer or supplier and at least one small to medium sized enterprise.

The competition closes at midday on the 5th of April 2017.
