Automotive Transformation Fund - Expressions of Interest

September 2021

The Automotive Transformation Fund is a funding programme created to support the industrialisation of an electrified vehicle supply chain in the UK at scale.

Powered by a collaboration between the Advanced Propulsion Centre, the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the Department for International Trade (DIT) and Innovate UK, the fund provides support for capital-focused projects in the following key technology areas:

  • batteries including cells (’gigafactories’)
  • electric machines and drives
  • power electronics
  • fuel cells
  • upstream supply chain for any of the above
  • recycling any aspect of the above

Targeted towards large scale projects, the fund helps businesses to develop future technologies and supports industrialisation investments that fulfill key elements of strategic electrified supply chains, to help accelerate the transition to electrification for a net-zero automotive industry in the UK and beyond.
