The UK Department of Transport has unveiled a staggering £20 million research and development fund, supporting the shift to a decarbonised transportation industry. The project covers charging solutions, EV battery disposal, and of course, the development of zero-emission, electric vehicle technology.
The fund aims to support the government initiative to nullify the sale of combustion engines by 2035, with electrically powered vehicles taking their place.

This scheme is not just to develop technologies, but also to benefit those who work in the industry, potentially helping to create an additional six thousand skill-specific jobs over the next decade.

Specifically, entries are open to businesses of all sizes with a solution for the following:
• Improving zero-emission (ZEV) range capability
• Increase the usage of small commercial ZEVs
• Support transition to zero emission for special use vehicles
• Improve ZEV user experience
• Improve sustainability of ZEVs
• Public residential charging in urban areas
• Rural charging
• Fleet charging

“Investing in innovation is crucial in decarbonising transport, which is why I’m delighted to see creative zero-emission projects across the UK come to life. The funding announced today will help harness some of the brightest talent in the UK tech industry, encouraging businesses to become global leaders in EV innovation, creating jobs and accelerating us towards our net-zero ambitions.” – Grant Shapps, Secretary of State for Transport
