PEMD Scale-up Manufacturing Competitions

Closing Date: 07/12/2022

UK registered businesses and partners can apply for grants to scale up manufacturing in the power electronics, machines and drives supply chain.

The UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK (IUK) works with people, companies and partner organisations to de-risk, enable and support innovation, and promote UK economic growth. IUK is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) – a non-departmental public body, funded by a grant-in-aid from the UK government through the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

Innovate UK’s Driving the Electric Revolution will invest in projects that enable the scale-up of Power Electronics Machines and Drives (PEMD) manufacturing to develop a resilient, cross-sectoral, UK supply chain for these enabling technologies critical for net zero.

This competition is split into two strands:

  • Strand 1: Adopting manufacturing best practice, which aims to fund collaborative feasibility studies that facilitate the transfer of knowledge, solutions, technologies and best practice from other manufacturing sectors and demonstrate the impact of these innovations on the PEMD supply chain. The aim is to improve manufacturing best practice in these technologies which are critical for net zero.
  • Strand 2: Manufacturing process development, which aims to fund innovative process development projects that impact manufacturing cost, capability and efficiency to grow resilient manufacturing PEMD supply chains.
