Low Carbon Technology Research Grant
The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) is to invest in a limited number of collaborative research and development (R&D) pre-production match funded projects.
Projects must demonstrate the development of on-vehicle technologies and vehicle infrastructure interfaces, for either on or off-road vehicles. Technologies must be based around one or more of the Auto Council’s 4 strategic technologies:
-electric machines and power electronics
-energy storage and energy development
-lightweight vehicle and powertrain structures
These projects are required to:
-deliver significant reductions in vehicle CO2 emissions and improvements in air quality
-strengthen UK capability
-develop the UK’s supply chain in the field of low carbon vehicle propulsion or lightweight systems technology
This competition follows a 2 stage process consisting of an application and an interview stage.
Funding type: Grant
Project size: Total eligible project costs should range from £5 million to £40 million. The duration should be between 18 and 42 months.
