Low Emission Vehicles

Governments across the globe are working and deploying plans to reduce carbon and particulate emissions to improve the environment for generations to come.

Transport connects people, places, goods and services. The UK is well placed to capitalise on technologies and innovation to benefit the economy, society, individuals and the environment.

These are huge markets, with huge employment potential, but they depend on the innovation that comes from the SME sector. We need technology development in Batteries, Hydrogen , Power Electronics, Machines and Drives to help us reach net zero by 2050.

On a day to day basis we help numerous businesses to reach their potential in this area. Initially we start with a short conversation to understand how we can best assist.

We have deep knowledge of the sector including the latest government grants and greentech investors.  We have a strong network of organisations across the low emission mobility space, including charging and hydrogen infrastructure. Sometimes the most valuable piece of work we can do is to connect to you another company in the LEM space that will amplify your value proposition.

We work across sectors in the KTN and work extremely closely with other teams and in particular enabling and energy teams. We work on ISCF programs such as Driving the Electric Revolution, Future Flight and low emission funded programs.
