The impact so far
In 2013, we embarked on a mission to play a key role in fulfilling the UK Government’s commitment to decarbonise transport by 2050. In collaboration with industry, government and academia, we bridge the R&D and industrialisation landscape of future propulsion technologies that will help the UK automotive sector to deliver net-zero emission solutions.
In our drive to support the UK’s capabilities to create and manufacture low-carbon propulsion technologies, we have collaborated with and supported organisations of all shapes and sizes. Through our various programs and competitions, we invest and get behind projects that can really make a difference in reducing CO2 emissions.
Our work is to make sure that the UK remains competitive in the race to create a cleaner tomorrow. Every project we support anchors and grows UK capabilities, through the research, development and production of low-carbon automotive technologies and processes.
Read below about some of the cutting-edge, low-carbon, propulsion innovations that we are currently supporting.
So far we have facilitated investment of over £1.2 billion
Our portfolio features 172 projects, which is growing rapidly
We have engaged over 410 organisations from SMEs to volume vehicle manufacturers
So far the APC has helped to safeguard or create just under 50,000 UK jobs
milion tonnes of CO2
Saved through a number of projects.
The equivalent of removing 12m cars off the road.
Since 2013, we have supported many organisations deliver projects to drive the UK automotive industry and economy on the road to net zero.
