Low Carbon Vehicle Technology Project (LCVTP)
The Low Carbon Vehicle Technology Project was a collaboration between leading automotive companies and research partners, revolutionising the way vehicles are powered and manufactured. The project concentrated on fifteen separate technical R&D workstreams, each working closely with selected SMEs in the West Midlands region.
The multi-million project was funded by Advantage West Midlands, the European Regional Development Fund and contribution from industry partners. The project safeguarded jobs in the region’s supply chain as businesses switched to low carbon opportunities and made the West Midlands a global centre of excellence in low carbon vehicle engineering.
LCVTP was separated into fifteen different research streams, each lead by a different project partner and each covering a specific area of low carbon research. To find out more about each area of research follow the links below.
The project was led by 7 world-renowned industry and research partners: Jaguar Land Rover, TATA Motors European Technical Centre, Ricardo, MIRA LTD, Zytek, WMG and Coventry University and aimed to secure active participation from forward-thinking businesses across the UK.
