Niche Vehicle Network

Funding & Competitions


Feasibility Study

The Feasibility Competition provides grants for industry-led projects focusing on catalysing innovative zero emission vehicle technologies through the undertaking of initial desk-top research activities.


EV Challenge

The Early Stage Vehicle R&D stream supports collaborative R&D projects producing a proof of concept, demonstrating the accelerated development of technologies on a zero emission vehicles.

The Innovative Charging stream supports collaborative R&D for projects producing an innovative charging proof of concept accelerating the development of innovative off-board charging solutions for electric vehicles.


Late Stage Vehicle R&D

The Late Stage Vehicle R&D stream provides grants for collaborative R&D to take technologies from demonstration through to production which can be demonstrated on a UK zero emission or low carbon niche vehicle.
