PEMD Scale-up: Strand 1, adopting manufacturing best practice
Drivers such as climate change, supply chain resilience and the cost of energy mean that there is a growing need to invest in manufacturing efficiency, particularly across the Power Electronics Machines and Drives (PEMD) value chain.
Innovate UK’s Driving the Electric Revolution, part of UK Research and Innovation, aims to make the UK PEMD supply chain more globally competitive by investing up to £5 million in projects that enable the scale-up of PEMD manufacturing.
In this strand Innovate UK are looking to fund collaborative feasibility projects that will facilitate and de-risk the transfer of knowledge, solutions and technologies from other manufacturing sectors into the UK PEMD community.
The aim is to improve manufacturing best practice in these technologies which are critical for net zero.
Elements of the manufacturing supply chain that are considered in scope include:
