Written by: Fuel Card Services, Last updated:14th February 2022
Fifteen UK small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) will benefit from a combined £1.1 million investment to develop new low-carbon technologies.
The funds have been raised through the latest phase of the Technology Developer Accelerator Programme (TDAP) from the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC).
Promoting UK innovation
TDAP manager for the APC Josh Denne argued the automotive industry needs a range of new technologies to help decarbonise the UK transport sector, from heavy duty to passenger and beyond.
“The variety of technology coming through this programme reflects the change in the industry,” he stated.
“There is no silver bullet for decarbonising the transport sector, being technology agnostic at the APC allows us to be reactive and work with some revolutionary new technology and organisations.”
Technologies that will benefit from an influx of new funding range from new battery management technologies, fuel cells to printed power electronics.
APC is a collaboration between the UK government and industry to develop low-carbon automotive technologies and to safeguard up to 300,000 jobs.
Jenny Smith, general manager for Tele-Gence, commented: “Supporting a lower-carbon future is imperative for the UK automotive industry and it is investment in SMEs and technologies at the cutting-edge of design that will pave the way to make this dream a reality.”
