The Â£80 million Driving the Electric Revolution Challenge from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is helping the UK grasp the economic opportunities from the global shift to net zero.
We aim to make the UK a global leader in power electronics, machines and drives (PEMD) technology, which underpin electrification. By filling gaps in current PEMD supply chains our investments are creating the supply chains of the future.
With four regional Driving the Electric Revolution Industrialisation Centres we support businesses to develop and scale new PEMD tech and manufacturing process.
Part of the Future of Mobility grand challenge at UKRI, it forms part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) addressing the big societal challenges being faced by UK businesses today.
