The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) exists to position the UK as a centre of excellence for low carbon propulsion development and production. The APC team brings together and supports those who have good ideas in the form of innovative technologies with those who can bring them to market as products. The Advanced Propulsion Centre was formed in 2013 and is a £1 billion, ten-year commitment between government and the automotive industry. The APC is a private limited company, an industry-wide collaboration of innovators and producers of low carbon propulsion systems.
The services provided by the APC will enable projects which will provide profitable growth and sustainable opportunities for the partners involved. Propulsion systems can represent up to 50% of the value of a vehicle, so the activities supported by the APC will make a significant contribution to the UK’s economic prosperity, building a new capability in the UK supply base and creating a Propulsion Nation.
