Niche Vehicle Feasibility Studies Competition
The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) and Innovate UK are supporting the Niche Vehicle Feasibility Studies Competition provides grant funding of up to £35,000 to undertake desktop research and/or preliminary investigation activities aimed at catalysing innovative vehicle technologies applicable to road-going zero emission UK niche vehicles.
The competition is open to single applications from UK registered SMEs and micro companies active in the zero-emission niche vehicle technology sector. There are two streams in the competition this year:
STREAM 1 – RANGE EXTENSION AND IMPROVED EFFICIENCY
Applications into this stream must be able to articulate how they will support the high-level objectives of accelerated development of new on-road zero emission niche vehicles and/or solutions to deliver increased zero emission vehicle range.
STREAM 2 – INNOVATIVE CHARGING SOLUTIONS
Applications into this competition stream must be able to articulate how they will support the high-level objective of accelerated development of charging solutions to support increased uptake of zero emission on-road UK niche vehicles.
Applications must be submitted online through the NVN Funding Gateway which also contains both Applicant Guidance and FAQ documents for each competition stream.
