PEMC at the University of Nottingham is delighted to be working with GE’s Power Conversion UK business on a project funded by UKRI's Driving the Electric Revolution challenge, kick-starting the UK's green industrial revolution. It's an exciting opportunity to contribute to next generation clean technology and to utilise shared expertise in electrical machines and power electronics.

The project develops and tests the interfaces that bridge between existing Motor and Drive elements and investigates manufacturing/supply chain aspects related to megawatt scale integrated electrical machines to pave the way for full commercial exploitation, targeting the benefits at a worldwide market, placing UK industry as world class leader in this field. 

Driving the Electric Revolution Challenge Director, Dr Will Drury said:

“These projects form a vital part of the UK’s green economic recovery from COVID-19. By focusing on growing the capability of the UK PEMD supply chain and manufacturing we aim to make the UK a global leader in the manufacture of core technologies which underpin electrification. This is crucial in helping the UK reach net zero by 2050.”
