LowCVP's Innovation Working Group supports the introduction of new low carbon technologies. It helps deal with issues facing technology developers - in particular SMEs and academic institutions - finding partners, breaking down market barriers and generating commercial opportunities. The group's members include academics, emerging businesses, engineering consultants, test and evaluation houses, funding providers, local, regional and national government departments and various companies in the supply chain.
The current focus is on developing a UK supply chain for low carbon vehicle technologies, fostering collaboration between UK SMEs and academic research institutions, assessing and addressing support to UK organisations, encouraging private sector investment and engagement. The Group also oversees the Technology Challenge.
