Advanced Propulsion Centre

At APC, we provide funding, support and insight to help the UK automotive industry transition towards a net-zero future. Our job is to ensure that the UK remains competitive in the research, development and production of low carbon propulsion technologies. A joint venture between UK Government and the automotive industry, our aim is to facilitate the co-investment of £1 billion, creating or safeguarding 30,000 jobs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50m tonnes of CO₂.

We run a variety of programmes and initiatives in pursuit of these goals, including mid to large-scale collaborative research and development programmes, funded early-stage business accelerator programmes, an ongoing series of thought leadership seminars and a programme of national networking activities.

Please feel free to make contact with us if you have any queries, are interested in our project opportunities or just have questions about the UKs automotive innovation ecosystem.
