Our Impact

The impact so far

In 2013, we embarked on a mission to play a key role in fulfilling the UK Government’s commitment to decarbonise transport by 2050. In collaboration with industry, government and academia, we bridge the R&D and industrialisation landscape of future propulsion technologies that will help the UK automotive sector to deliver net-zero emission solutions.

In our drive to support the UK’s capabilities to create and manufacture low-carbon propulsion technologies, we have collaborated with and supported organisations of all shapes and sizes. Through our various programs and competitions, we invest and get behind projects that can really make a difference in reducing CO2 emissions.

Funded Projects

We work to make sure that the UK remains competitive in the race to create a cleaner tomorrow. Every project we support anchors and grows the UK’s capabilities through the research, development and production of low-carbon automotive technologies and processes.
