The winners securing a share of a £2.5 million investment for low carbon development and demonstration projects in the UK niche vehicle sector have been announced at LCV 2019.
Fourteen new R&D projects seeking innovative solutions at the leading edge of electrification, autonomy, lightweight materials and advanced aerodynamics, have been successful in receiving grant funding from the Niche Vehicle Network competition, collectively supported by Innovate UK, the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC).
All of the projects will receive 50% of their project costs and will cover the balance of the project costs with their own resources. All projects are collaborative between at least three UK-based companies, with the lead company a UK SME or Micro company active in the UK low carbon niche vehicle technology sector.
Grants have been awarded to UK niche vehicle manufacturers and associated design and engineering companies to undertake R&D of early market low carbon technology Proof of Concept projects and for UK SMEs and their supply chains, to take existing low carbon vehicle technologies from demonstration through to Production Readiness.
