Just launched: Driving the Electric Revolution Webinar Series

Posted on 30/04/2020

The "Engage with..." DER webinar series aims to give companies a platform to present their PEMD journeys, activities, challenges and much more.


The “Engage with…” series aims to give companies a platform to present to you:

  • Who they are and what they do.
  • Their PEMD growth journey/roadmap and what they are doing in PEMD.
  • Their challenges and future PEMD supply chain requirements, with a view of exploring future opportunities for partnerships/collaborations/projects.


With a vested interest in growing UK capability and community in PEMD, this webinar series is a chance to:

  • Identify valuable partners
  • Build project consortiums
  • Articulate challenges
  • Gain supply chain knowledge
  • Drive new connections
  • Find creative solutions


All with the aim for you to seize the economic opportunities from the global transition to clean technologies and electrification.

Previous Webinars from this series:


Engage With…nexperia

Slides will be available shortly.

nexperia is a global semiconductor manufacturer with a factory in Manchester. Their product range includes bipolar transistors, diodes, ESD protection, TVS diodes, MOSFETs and Logic devices.


Engage With…Siemens

Slides are available here.

Siemens Digital Industries, Motion Control (DI MC) in the UK undertakes product design, supply chain definition and manufacturing, of over 1.2 million (per annum) industrial drive products for worldwide markets at their Congleton site.

This extends from designing power electronics, drives and motor control solutions, which are used in a variety of applications such as water pumping stations, air handling systems, logistics conveyors, food & beverage production, machining, aerospace and automotive manufacturing plants.


Engage With…Rolls-Royce

Slides are available here.

Rolls-Royce believe in the transforming potential of technology. Their focus is on pioneering the power that matters for the needs of tomorrow as well as today. Within the aerospace industry, there is a strong pull to accelerate electrification in both the Civil and Defence markets. PEMD is a key enabler for a more-electric gas turbine, and is also an enabler for longer term opportunities in electric flight at varying scales.

In this webinar Rolls-Royce will provide an insight into the specific challenges associated with designing and deploying PEMD solutions within the harsh environment of a gas turbine, from which Rolls-Royce hope to seed future partnerships within the UK supply chain.


Engage With… Driving the Electric Revolution: Funding Competition webinar

On 21st May the team spoke about the upcoming coming competition. This is an overview of what was presented, reminding all that that these dates and this content is subject to change up to and including the publishing of the official competition brief.

Driving the Electric Revolution’s third funding competition is expected to launch on 15th June 2020, and close at noon 29th July 2020.* The aim of this competition is to facilitate UK supply chain and manufacturing capability growth in power electronics, machines and drives to enable future improvements in productivity, capacity, quality or efficiency. Circular economy and recycling activities are also in scope. Looking to fund short, high impact, collaborative research and development projects that can demonstrate a clear return on investment. This is not for proof of concept or feasibility studies and we will not fund product development. It is expected that projects can be up to 9 months in duration, up to £500,000 in total eligible costs, and total funding available for this competition will be up to £5million.*
* Dates and content subject to change up to and including the publishing of the official competition brief.

The Driving the Electric Revolution Challenge is an investment of £80 million over 4 years. It was set up to help UK businesses seize the opportunities presented by the transition to a low carbon economy. It aims to ensure the UK leads the world in the design, development and manufacture of power electronic, machines and drives (PEMD) across 7 sectors:

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Marine
  • Energy
  • Off Highway
  • Rail
  • Industrial
