Businesses can apply for a share of £20 million to support both feasibility studies and R&D activity focused on energy efficient and zero emission vehicle technologies, in support of the Government’s ambition for nearly all cars and vans on UK roads to be zero emission by 2050.

Businesses can lead research and development projects into low emission technologies for cars, motorbikes, lorries and vans as part of a long-term funding plan for the UK to lead the way in new vehicle development. For the first time, a portion of the money is also being set aside to support research into technologies for medium and heavy goods vehicles.

This funding aims to support the acceleration towards zero-emission vehicles through technology development, particularly where this can significantly reduce system costs. Projects could look at:

  • Electric machines and power electronics
  • Energy storage and energy management
  • Lightweight vehicle and powertrain structures
  • Highly disruptive zero emission technologies
  • Propulsion for zero emission medium and heavy goods vehicles
  • Main powertrain and also on auxiliary power systems (medium & heavy goods vehicles)

Feasibility studies - key criteria / benefits:

  • Total project costs of up to £250,000 and to last up to 12 months
  • Led by a business working with at least one partner
  • Businesses could attract up to 70% of their eligible project costs

Research and Development - key criteria / benefits:

  • Total project costs of between £250,000 and £4 million, lasting 12 months to 3 years
  • Led by a business working with at least one partner and including an appropriate end customer
  • Businesses could attract up to 70% of their eligible project costs
