The Advanced Propulsion Centre is an independent company created by UK government and the Automotive Industry.
We collaborate with UK government, industry and academia to accelerate the industrialisation of technologies, supporting the transition to deliver net-zero emission vehicles.
Since our foundation in 2013, we’ve funded 172 low-carbon projects, involving 410 partners, working with companies of all sizes, and have helped to create or safeguard nearly 50,000 jobs in the UK. The technologies developed in these projects are projected to save over 297 million tonnes of CO2, the equivalent of removing the lifetime emissions from 12 million cars.
With our knowledge and insight, our role in building and advising project consortia helps projects start more quickly and deliver more value. Our work to drive innovation and encourage collaboration is building the foundations for a successful UK industry.
In 2019 the UK government committed the Automotive Transformation Fund (ATF) to accelerate the development of a net-zero vehicle supply chain, enabling UK-based manufacturers to serve global markets. ATF investments are awarded through the APC to support strategically important UK capital and R&D investments that will enable companies involved in batteries, motors and drives, power electronics, fuel cells, and upstream supply chains to anchor their future.
Come and meet us on the UK Government Pavilion
We’re excited to be part of the UK Government Pavilion at this year’s show, which is made up of key organisations that are dedicated to positioning the UK at the forefront of the design, manufacturing, and use of transition to zero-emission and connected autonomous automotive technology to reach net zero by 2050.
Come and meet the APC team on the UK Government Pavilion in Hall 3 to find out more about how we can help you accelerate the industrialisation of technology that will work towards delivering net-zero carbon emission technologies for on-road or off-road vehicles.
