Electrical Vehicle Supply Chain Programme
Tue 4 April 2017, 09:30 – 16:30 BST
The UK is targeting that every new car manufactured will be zero emissions from 2040. In order to support the significant scale up required in Hybrid, Plug in Hybrid and Battery Electric Vehicle manufacturing, the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) is working with industry and government to support the development of the Electric Vehicle Supply Chain.
The Electrification Supply Chain (ESC) programme aims to engage supply partners at all levels of the Supply Chain and to deliver toolkits which will act as a ‘one stop shop’, connecting everyone from Vehicle Manufacturers to materials producers in the UK. The toolkit will also identify research projects which are underway or have been completed in this area so that companies looking to develop EV capabilities can access and leverage what has already been done to identify and build future collaborations.
In addition to supporting commercial entities to develop their business today, the ESC programme will help inform the UK Government where the most significant opportunities to develop the supply chain lie and what tools we may need to do this.
Is your organisation interested or already involved in the EV supply chain? If so, the APC would like to involve you in this initiative.
Please to join us on Tuesday 4th April at 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, Huddersfield.
During this event, you will hear from key supply chain organisations about their future EV supply chain requirements and capabilities and hear the government perspective on the EV Strategy for the UK. You will also have the opportunity to help shape the toolkits we use to build an end to end supply chain capable of delivering the maximum UK content in the powertrains of the future. Finally, networking opportunities will allow time to meet potential commercial partners and the APC in person.
The EV Supply Chain event will be followed by the ‘Meet the APC’ event which will give you an insight into how the APC can help your organisation, beyond the EV Supply Chain activities. You are very welcome to attend both events and make the most of this opportunity to engage with the APC.
Please register for this event by Tuesday 28th March
Please feel free to forward this invitation to other organisations which you believe may be interested in this event. However, places are limited so please register as soon as possible to confirm your attendance.
