Fuel cells and hydrogen technology – The APC in Birmingham this week

The Advanced Propulsion Centre is attending the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Technical Conference at the Millennium Point, Birmingham this week. The event hosts industry leaders and researchers in fuel cells and hydrogen based technology, bringing together academia and industry to present new trends and developments.

Now in its 10th year, the event which is organised by the University of Birmingham includes sessions on:

  • Fuel cells – materials and processes
  • Hydrogen production, storage and infrastructure
  • Socio-economics, marketing and strategy
  • Current fuel cell projects
  • Student’s projects

The APC has a stand at the conference and the team is available to answer any questions about the APC and how to access the resources available.

With the latest funding competition APC4 Driving UK Capability and Economic Impact through Low Carbon Propulsion Technologies recently opened this event gives the chance to find out how you can access the £60 million funding available through the APC.

Up to £60 million is currently available in collaborative funding for low carbon advanced propulsion projects worth more than £120 million through the current funding competition which opened on 5 May and runs until the end of June.

The competition is called ‘APC4 Driving UK Capability and Economic Impact through Low Carbon Propulsion Technologies’ for projects which are collaborative and business-led and include a vehicle manufacturer or a tier 1 supplier and an SME partner. They must also develop the UK’s supply chain in the field of low carbon vehicle propulsion technology. The competition will fund the development of on-vehicle technologies for either on-road or off-highway vehicles.

Consortia must have a clear, demonstrable route to production, and line of sight to market, involving at least one vehicle manufacturer and/or a tier 1 supplier and at least one SME partner.
