Low carbon vehicle R&D funding announced

Low carbon vehicle R&D funding announced
Funding has been granted to three research and development projects aimed at improving the design of low carbon vehicles.

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has awarded the £10 million of funding to address specific scientific and engineering issues, which can then be used within the green vehicle market.

Professor Dave Delpy, chief executive of the EPSRC, said: "As part of the Integrated Delivery Programme, EPSRC will be supporting a strategic programme of university-based research. The provision of high quality academic research ideas provides the basis for businesses to translate science into the vehicle market."

The three areas of research identified under the scheme are issues related to hybrid electric vehicle subsystems, using recycled and reusable materials within vehicle manufacture and optimising the performance of electric motors.

EPSRC will be working with the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) on the scheme.

Late last year, the TSB announced from March 7th 2011 projects would be invited to apply for funding of between £250,000 to £750,000 as part of a £8 million initiative to enhance low carbon vehicle development in the UK.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800464482-ADNFCR
