Funding Opportunity – The Road to Zero Emission Vehicles

The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) will work with Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, to invest up to £16 million in research and development (R&D) projects.

This is to enable industry-led research into on-vehicle technologies that accelerate the transition to zero emission vehicles in the UK and globally. This is part of the 15th competition in the Integrated Delivery Programme (IDP) series.

A separate £2 million is available for feasibility study projects and a further £4 million to support a single large research and development project.

We are looking for projects to develop low-cost, highly integrated systems that enable zero emission journeys for cars and other vehicle types. In this round we are particularly looking for projects that deliver innovative power electronics, machines and drive technologies. You must identify technical or commercial challenges developing zero and zero emission capable technologies on vehicles. This can be for any of the vehicles listed in the scope, which range from motorbikes and passenger cars to buses and large trucks.

All projects must be a collaboration between at least 2 grant claiming partners. The lead must be a UK business.
