This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition funded by the Department for Transport and delivered by Innovate UK. It forms part of a £20 million managed programme supporting the transition to zero emission trucks in the UK.
The aim of the competition is to develop an interactive solution to de-risk, aid, and encourage fleet operators to convert to battery electric vehicles.
The solution will be used by public and private fleet operators to understand the strengths, weaknesses, and deployment options around commercially available zero emission trucks.
The solution will also identify the needs and challenges around critical supporting infrastructure, vehicle charging and fleet management.
This is phase 1 of a potential 2-phase competition.
The phase 1 project must include data evaluation, test, and demonstration involving a minimum of ten battery electric trucks.
The Automotive Transformation Fund (ATF) is a new programme that aims to establish a competitive and sustainable UK supply chain.
It offers a share of up to £1 billion of funding for capital and associated industrial research projects. This will be to support the industrialisation of a high value, electrified automotive supply at scale in the UK.
This is an expression of interest (EoI) competition. If your application is successful you will be invited to apply to a full stage competition strand when it is published.

Your project will preferably deliver both of these, to ensure the UK meets the future demand of vehicle-makers.
The Department for Transport (DfT) will work with Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, to invest up to £10 million in innovation projects.
This investment is for advanced feasibility studies into zero emission road freight. This competition will conduct pre-deployment work for a possible future electric road system demonstration.
This investment is for advanced feasibility studies for zero emission road freight. This competition will conduct pre-deployment work for a possible future hydrogen fuel cell truck demonstration.
This investment is for advanced feasibility studies and industrial research in supply chain technology.
Your project can be for the future use of zero emission trucks, including battery electric trucks, hydrogen fuel cell trucks, or trucks which will be operated on an electric road system.
The Biomass Feedstocks Innovation (BFI) Programme has been launched to support the development of innovations that address current barriers to large-scale domestic biomass supply in the UK. Phase 1 is to develop project implementation plans.
Lot 1 is for innovation projects.

Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, is investing up to £25 million in the best game-changing and commercially viable innovative or disruptive ideas. All proposals must be business focused.
Applications can come from any area of technology and be applied to any part of the economy, such as, but not exclusively:
Whilst we welcome projects that overlap with the grand challenge areas this is not a requirement, as we are also keen to support projects in other areas.
The aim of this competition is to facilitate the UK’s niche and volume supply chain and manufacturing capability growth in power electronics, machines and drives (PEMD).
The Department for Transport will work with Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, to invest up to £20m for innovative clean maritime and smart shipping projects. The aim of this competition is to support the design and development of technologies for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by the UK’s maritime sector as set out in the Clean Maritime Plan and support the transition to Net Zero by 2050.
In this competition we are seeking solutions for all sizes and categories of maritime vessels. Solutions can be suitable for one target size or multiple sizes of vessels. All ports and harbours are in scope, including infrastructure for both freight and leisure.
We strongly encourage projects from around the UK to support boosting jobs and economic growth.
The aim of this competition is to support the design and development of technologies for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by the UK’s maritime sector as set out in the Clean Maritime Plan and support the transition to Net Zero by 2050.
Stream 1 would be for technologies currently at TRL 6/7– aiming to demonstrate the capability of first-of-a-kind energy storage facilities through actual demonstrations in operational environments.
Stream 2 would be for technologies currently at TRL 4/5 – aiming to demonstrate first-of-a-kind energy storage system prototypes in relevant or operational environments. This aims to build a pipeline of longer-duration energy storage systems to be commercially deployed, leveraging the benefits achieved through Stream 1.
